Many experts view 2017 as the year in which energy storage turned the corner, from nascent technology to full-fledged energy market participant. Major milestones included the construction of a largescale energy storage facility to replace a natural gas plant in California, completed in less than six months; a large-scale solar-plus-storage PPA in Arizona priced substantially below prior market floors; and Tesla’s announcement in December of the successful powering of a 100MW mega battery in South Australia, completed in less than 100 days, as promised by Elon Musk.
