Energy storage was coupled with less than 0.1 percent of installed solar photovoltaic projects in 2014 in the U.S. Yet the prospects of solar-plus-storage have never been brighter. There are a number of drivers for this optimism – dropping solar PV and battery costs, favorable incentive programs, changing rate structures, rising concerns about resiliency, and growing grid integration challenges. Markets such as California and Hawaii are at the epicenter of a new "solar-plus" paradigm, where storage will be an important partner. This presentation will dive into key use cases, value streams, business models, and challenges, with emphasis on California behind-the-meter and utility-scale segments.  This presentation will also provide the audience with an outlook for the U.S. solar-plus-storage market.
