Capturing the best opportunities for distributed energy storage

robin adey-johnson

"Distributed energy storage is establishing itself in many markets – in homes, businesses and in-front of the meter.

More value streams are opening up, electricity systems are decentralising, and technology costs continue to fall.

The market today is growing fast, but from a small base. Different companies are adopting different positions and approaches to the market, with a variety of business models emerging.

Identifying, understanding and acting on the best opportunities is critical to securing a slice of the fast-growing distributed energy storage market."
