Household energy storage continues to expand in the United States
- Jul 27, 2018 -

According to the latest US energy storage monitoring report GTM Research and the Energy Storage Association (ESA), the 36 MWh short residential energy storage system was deployed in the first three months of this year, equivalent to the sum of residential quantity storage deployed in the first three quarters.

According to the report, California and Hawaii accounted for 74% of residential deployments during the quarter. Brett Simon, senior analyst at GTM Research and US project manager, said: "The ever-changing rules of network measurement and the growing interest of customers in the consumption of alternative energy and solar energy have driven the record in the residential energy storage market. Quarterly results.

Energy storage monitoring report. “More solar installers offer more residential storage products than ever before, and consider residential storage as an important area of business growth, especially in utility companies’ time-to-use ratios and reduced net metering compensation. Next. These policy trends are expected to continue as utilities and regulators will work to cope with the increasing solar PV penetration rate, which will drive demand for housing.

Some residential solar installers have claimed that in some regions, such as Southern California, new solar PV cells have a storage accessory rate of up to 20%, indicating that the technology market is very strong.

Residential storage systems accounted for 28% of all deployed MWh in the quarter, the highest in the sector, but behind the top of the table (51% of total deployment). Users in the non-residential sector experienced a quiet quarter with 21% of MWh deployed, although this area is almost three times that of last year.

In the first quarter of this year, a total of 126 megawatts of energy storage was deployed in various departments. This is an increase of 26% over the fourth quarter of 2017, but it was 46% lower than the same period last year. However, analysts at GTM Research listed the fourth quarter of 2016 and the first quarter of 2017 as "exceptions" because of the deployment of Aliso Canyon in these two quarters.

Kelly Speakes-Backman, chief executive of ESA, said: "as the US energy market shows a sustained growth trajectory in the first quarter of 2018, the industry is moving towards the target of 35 million kw of installed capacity for new energy storage devices by 2025." "More and more countries and markets are preparing to take action to eliminate the barriers to cost - efficient deployment of energy storage, which is expected to produce similar positive results in the remainder of 2018."

This quarter, the US energy storage monitor increased the market share of Colorado and Nevada to one quarter. Each quarter has other market coverage, including Arizona, California, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Texas.
