Listen to a timely discussion on the recent regulatory changes for energy storage and how these changes will affect grid integration, solar energy expansion, and improvements to grid reliability. Both the FERC and CPUC have adopted new rules and procurement requirements to encourage energy storage as a resource, enhance power system operations, increase efficiency, and reduce costs.

In collaboration with our extensive network of industry partners and solar experts, SEIA provides comprehensive and current analysis of solar markets and policy through our research reports, white papers, fact sheets, and through our own highly-regarded staff.
According to the SEIA/GTM Research U.S. Solar Market Insight Q3 2013 report there were 930 MW of solar PV installed in the third quarter of 2013, which means there is now 10,250 MW of solar energy in the U.S.
The U.S. installed 930 megawatts (MW) of photovoltaics (PV) in Q3 2013, up 20 percent over Q2 2013 and 35 percent over Q3 2012. This represents the second largest quarter in the history of the U.S. solar market and the largest quarter ever for residential PV installations. Even more importantly, 2013 is likely to be the first time in more than 15 years that the U.S. installs more solar capacity than world leader Germany, according to GTM Research forecasts.
