Energy Storage Industry Convenes on Social Media to Announce that "#StorageIsHere"

Join in the #StorageIsHere Twitter Chat on March 30th at 1:30pm ET

WASHINGTON, March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- During the week of March 28 - April 1, the Energy Storage Association (ESA) and their partner organizations, member companies and energy industry allies, will be flooding social media channels with #StorageIsHere. This campaign will bring energy storage installation pictures, case studies, press releases, blog posts and multimedia content to Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter to raise awareness about the thousands of successful energy storage projects and installations across the globe.

The energy storage industry is booming - with more than 240% growth in the U.S. last year. According to the GTM Research/ESA's U.S. Energy Storage Monitor, the U.S. deployed 112MW of energy storage capacity in the fourth quarter of 2015, making it the most successful quarter to date with more installations than in all of 2013 and 2014 combined.

The #StorageIsHere campaign was created to help tell that story and to bring awareness of energy storage to consumers. Energy storage companies from around the world will be sharing information about the industry's rapid growth, successful projects and the impact that energy storage is having on our entire energy economy.

For an in depth look at the paradigm shift from energy storage and to learn from the experts, join the #StorageIsHere Twitter chat on Wednesday, March 30th at 1:30pm-2:30pm ET.

Featured Product



The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
