Energy Storage Group Sees Record U.S. Grid-Scale Installations

June 16, 2022--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--The U.S. grid-scale energy storage market set a record during the first quarter this year, with installations totaling 747 megawatts (MW)/2,399 megawatt hours (MWh), according to a report by the American Clean Power Association (ACP) (Washington, D.C.) and Wood MacKenzie (Edinburgh, U.K.).

The volume of U.S. grid-scale installations was four times the volume seen in the first quarter of last year, despite continued procurement difficulties and project delays, according to the latest U.S. Energy Storage Monitor report.

"Quarter one of 2022 was the largest first quarter on record by far for grid-scale installations, a notable milestone since installations are typically back-weighted to the second half of the year. The West Coast and Southwest regions continue to dominate for both standalone and hybrid systems," said Vanessa Witte, senior analyst with Wood Mackenzie's energy storage team, in a press release.
