US storage soars as utilities scale smart grid battery deployments

The U.S. Energy Storage Monitor, in conjunction with the Energy Storage Association, has published a report that found the United States had its largest ever quarter for energy storage installations – deploying 234 MWh worth of storage across the first quarter of this year. This was a fiftyfold growth compared to the first quarter of 2016 and a significant step up in the scale of deployments in the US. Not only is this a record Q1 for any year in the US for deployments, it also marks a dramatic shift in the nature of deployments. In 2016, some 336 MWh of storage were deployed, this was achieved with 221 MW of storage deployed.
