The idea of combining solar photovoltaics with energy storage for retail electricity customers in the U.S. has received tremendous attention recently in anticipation of the first wave of growth in markets such as California and Hawaii, matched by a flurry of announcements.

Utilities are also beginning to take the opportunity seriously, with solar-plus-storage winning an interconnection battle at the California PUC, as well as HECO in Hawaii selecting Stem - an energy storage integrator - for a 1 megawatt pilot.

But significant barriers to the adoption of solar-plus-storage remain. Most significantly, cost reductions are in the early stages and business models need continued refinement before solar-plus-storage can emerge as a viable option for most customers.

In this report, GTM Research provides a comprehensive analysis of this nascent but accelerating market, including market drivers and barriers, end-customer economics, the evolving vendor ecosystem, and a market outlook.
