The Changing Landscape for EPCs Working with Energy Storage: Trends and Risks
Tuesday, September 21, 2021
12:30 PM – 1:00 PM EST
Location: Storage Central Theater: Booth 5459
EPCs are operating in a rapidly growing and evolving solar-plus-storage and stand-alone energy storage market, a market that is still young and developing best practices on the fly. This session would bring together EPCs, OEMs, developers, asset owners and utility professionals to discuss EPC trends, risks, and best practices to the community. Discussion topics would include supply channel immaturity (OEM vs. distribution model); high cost of sales; inconsistent, nonstandardized interconnection processes; and the need for the engineering community to be better educated in the nuances of designing and installing integrated solar-plus-storage systems. Attendees would take away a deeper understanding of the “boots on the ground” challenges and opportunities in the energy storage/solar-plus-storage EPC sector.
