This is a great tie up for one of our clients sonnen. Different markets have different challenges and whilst the main focus for a large proportion of the US domestic energy storage market is centered on providing emergency backup power, more advanced applications and revenue streams are possible.

Maximising self-consumption is great but there are plenty of other value streams on the other side of the meter. Aggregating a network of storage systems to provide grid services is already working with the sonnenCommunity in Germany and with other markets reaching the critical mass for offering these additional services, things really start to get interesting. Hopefully the UK and USA will be following quickly on the success of the German market.
