The GTM Squared Q2 2018 interactive call focused on how energy storage is helping to optimize the power grid. We kicked off with an outlook on applications and markets from our resident expert, Julian Spector. Julian gave us his hot takes and updates on the biggest stories of 2018 so far, including:

  • Are gas peakers dead? We’ll look at how markets are moving in CA, AZ, NY, and MA.
  • Is the resilience bump real? For a long time, everyone said resilience was priceless, but no one wanted to pay for it. Last year's string of disasters might change that.
  • Is 2018 the year residential storage shines? Last year the segment set records each quarter. If the trend continues, we’ll see 4x growth in 2018.

Julian was also joined by Stephen Lacey and Julia Pyper for a high-powered editorial roundtable. The group debated and discussed topics from across the storage ecosystem and took questions from audience members.
