What a fantastic first six months of the year for residential storage in Germany! Unlike many other areas in Europe the residential solar market is going through rapid growth in Germany with 22,000 new installations in the first half of 2017. This article doesn't break down the 16,800 storage systems between installations with new PV systems and retro-fit solutions unfortunately. It would be interesting to see what proportion of the 22,000 new PV systems were installed with storage. My guess is that it is pretty high.

From a Hyperion point of view, it is brilliant to see clients sonnen and LG Chem leading the way. No doubt that has something to do with the superstars we have recruited for them!
