Advancements in Solar Energy Storage Technology Are Driving the U.S. Market
A quiet revolution of sorts has been building over the last couple of years. Thanks to a variety of technological advances in everything from battery technology to the way in which solar power systems convert and store the sun’s energy, there is a boom happening in solar energy storage. The United States energy storage market just recorded its best ever quarter and its best ever overall year in 2015.
Energy storage technology seems to be making headway in its effort to catch up with the massive advancement that have been made in sustainable energy generation or conversion technology. A couple of decades ago solar cells were large, clunky, inefficient shadows of what they’ve become recently.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t until the last two years that solar energy storage seemed to make any real advancements toward catching up.
