U.S. Residential Battery Storage Playbook 2017
The U.S. residential storage market is currently large and thriving, principally driven by off-grid applications. The opportunity will unfold unevenly across applications and markets over time, especially as the currently nascent grid-tied market begins to develop.
In addition to off-grid installations, the strongest applications today are time-of- use and self-consumption in Hawaii and backup power for a niche set of customers in PJM territory and the Northeast. However, the market opportunity will evolve to potentially include more prevalent TOU applications in California, New York, Massachusetts and Arizona, a more robust backup market in PJM and the Northeast, and grid services markets in California, New York and Texas.
