Doug Staker, VP Global Sales will be on the expert panel discussing Storage Behind the Meter – Opportunities for Solar and Storage Project Development at the 2014 Greentech Media’s U.S. Solar Market Insight Conference.
Spurred by favorable rate structures, the declining cost of energy storage technologies and the always looming “duck curve,” the market for customer-sited energy storage is on the cusp of breaking open. Yet, strong bottlenecks in market educations, project finance, and basic project economics currently stymy the promising industry. This panel of experts in energy storage project development seeks to answer: Where and when does customer-sited commercial storage make sense? What are potential solutions to current bottlenecks in project finance, market support and system economics? Do opportunities to couple solar and storage together improve project viability or needlessly complicate the value proposition? Is one technology necessary to push the other forward?
