Grid-scale energy storage installations quadrupled in the first quarter of the year, compared to the same period in 2021, but geopolitical and domestic conflicts kept figures from being higher, according to the U.S. Storage Monitor report published by Wood Mackenzie and the American Clean Power Association on June 15.
Overall storage installations rose 955 MW and 2,875 MWh during the first quarter, outpacing last year’s results. Large-scale storage is expected to reach 41 GWh by 2026, and residential battery installations are projected to reach 2.3 GWh by that same time year.
California has the most large and small scale storage installations of any state, while Texas has the next highest level of grid storage and Puerto Rico has the second highest level of behind-the-meter storage.
