The US’ two leading states in solar and energy storage, New York and California, have taken steps towards valuing the locational and time-of-use value of distributed energy resources and other states should follow, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) has said.
What does it mean to be all things to all people? Does it overstretch resources to breaking point, or does it give you a chance to cast a wider net and capture market share? Vivint Solar recently joined Tesla in a race to offer whole packages including solar, storage, EV charging and other components to US customers. We talked to GTM Research's Brett Simon on some of the dynamics of those parallel strategies.
Hawaii’s electricity regulator and main utility have recognised that customer-sited distributed energy resources (DERs), including rooftop PV and energy storage, can provide essential grid services and better visibility for network operators, the VP of Stem Inc's Hawaii operations has told Energy Storage News.
According to a new report from GTM Research, very few US states are actively formulating policies, data infrastructures and the proper technological environments needed to allow for the location-based valuation systems that will assist in the procurement processes for distributed energy resources (DERs) in grid services.
The road will be “bumpy”, but solar in the US will continue outstripping predictions by traditional energy forecasters, reaching its next order of magnitude increase in installed capacity by 2030, according to an analyst at GTM Research.
