While seeming “tech breakthroughs” garner a great deal of media attention, the three key factors in determining the likely impact of storage tech companies are innovative technology, scalability and a proven track record, a Bloomberg New Energy Finance analyst has said.

Logan Goldie-Scott, head of energy storage analysis at BNEF, consulted with PV Tech Power writers Ben Willis and Andy Colthorpe for a feature article in the seventh volume of the downstream solar technology journal.

BNEF is interested in companies with proven track records that have “innovative solutions” to address “big opportunities”, the analyst said.
