By 2025, Wood Mackenzie expects nearly 25% of all behind-the-meter solar systems in the U.S. to include storage. By 2030, the global energy storage market will increase 30 times over 2020 capacity, according to InfoLink. Storage for off-grid and grid-tied systems is becoming more attainable and affordable thanks to certified, reusable lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries.
