Report: energy storage tops list of requirements for PV inverter buyers: A new survey conducted by IMS Researc...

Despite the infancy of the energy storage market , nearly one third of respondents in the IMS study indicated that they expect to be using energy storage in over 40 percent of the PV systems they install by 2015. The recent survey of global installers, system integrators and wholesalers also revealed that Chinese PV inverters are gaining acceptance and that the high price of microinverters is the main barrier to them gaining share. Growing need for energy storage When asked which requirement they saw becoming most important over the next two years, respondents from Germany, Italy, and the U.K. selected energy storage as being more critical than any other requirement for future PV inverters. When asked what the main driver for the adoption of energy storage would be, the most common response from customers was a reduction in battery prices helping to drive lower system pric...
