New guide to commercialization of energy storage in the USA released

Energy Storage Update announces the release of their brand new guide to energy storage commercialization, which provides an exclusive breakdown of the challenges that must be overcome to deploy technologies at scale.

Energy Storage Update has recently completed work on their guide to Commercializing Energy Storage in the U.S, that explores the role of funding bodies in bringing storage technologies to market.


Furthermore, it examines the impact that California's 1.325GW procurement target will have on market growth, and highlights what energy storage companies can learn from the commercialization of wind and solar technologies over the last decade.

In a recent interview Jack Ahearne, the leading researcher at Energy Storage Update, said that "2014 is shaping up to be a critical year for the commercialization of a diverse range of energy storage technologies". He explained that "the guide provides a detailed market update that assesses the critical roadblocks companies must overcome to ensure growth in the project pipeline".

The guide is free to download and can be found here:
