German government subsidy kick-starts #solar energy storage market

The German government's new energy storage subsidy is forecast to kick-start the adoption of solar photovoltaic energy storage systems very much as its feed-in tariff (FIT) program boosted the PV industry eight years ago, says industry research firm IHS . The adoption of residential PV energy storage in Germany will accelerate in 2014 as a result of this subsidy and falling prices of the storage system, IHS says. Analysts say similar storage subsidies are available in both Japan for lithium-ion based storage solutions in the residential sector and in California, where advanced energy storage systems can be subsidized up to 3 MW in size. IHS projects energy storage in grid-connected applications will generate $19 billion worldwide in 2017. Bundesverband Solarwirtschaft (BSW), the German solar industry association, announced Aug. 30 that 1,100 solar PV systems have received ...
