      The U.S. is on the cusp of a breakout year for energy storage, according to the inaugural U.S. Energy Storage Monitor report from GTM Research and the Energy Storage Association (ESA). The U.S. is forecasted to deploy 220 megawatts in 2015, more than three times its 2014 total, and growth should continue at a rapid clip thereafter. It is the first in a series of quarterly reports that the newly-minted GTM Research and ESA collaboration will publish on the accelerating U.S. energy storage market. The research covers deployments, markets, policies, financing, pricing and installation forecasts.

    6. First Standard for Energy Storage Systems Being Developed

      First Standard for Energy Storage Systems Being Developed

      Companies looking for an accurate method to gauge how well large batteries and other grid-scale energy storage systems will work are using a new set of evaluation guidelines, called a protocol, that do just that. And now the protocol is being developed into what will become the first-ever standard for measuring and reporting the performance of energy storage systems. A working group of more than 100 stakeholders representing a wide range of stakeholders worked under the leadership of the U.S. Department of Energy and two of its labs, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories, to develop the protocol. The protocol was initially released in October 2012, revised in June 2014 and continues to be improved today.
