Hurricanes Harvey And Irma Show U.S. Must Boost Grid Resiliency. Energy Storage Is Doing Just That

Two new reports show customer-sited energy storage is one of America’s fastest-growing energy technologies, with record-breaking installations in the second quarter of 2017. Energy storage could soon become a standard offering for U.S. utilities looking to diversify their business models and improve grid resiliency in the face of increasing extreme storms like Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. GTM Research reports 443 on-site residential and commercial energy storage systems were deployed in Q2 2017, the most ever in one quarter, and expects 591 megawatt-hours (MWh) capacity to be deployed by the end of 2017.
