Residential solar energy storage market could approach one gigawatt by 2018.

Storage does not necessarily equal Li ion. In Germany, where a subsidy for storage is in place, it does at least for the ~4000 PV with storage installations implemented under the subsidy program. In the more mature markets for residential storage, South Africa and Australia, storage is mostly lead-acid. Other forms of storage pertinent to residential applications include thermal storage (cooling or heating) using DG and/or off-peak power to provide HVAC functions. The advantages to a residential customer include the ability to avoid less advantageous net metering schemes and improved continuity of service. The advantage to a utility is avoidance of technical difficulties of integrating DG feeds. A major issue is that a residential system with sufficient generation and storage can be a non-customer to the utility. The other (possibly specious) issue is that storage may be u...
