    “Market research firm IHS says the energy storage market will reach six gigawatts in annual installations in 2017 and 40 gigawatts in 2022.”

    Gigawatts is a measure of power, not energy. So I have no clue whatsoever what you’re nattering on about. Gigawatt—hours is a measure of energy.

    It’s the complete lack of precision you business types exhibit that lead me to question your BS. You simply haven’t a clue what you’re talking about. Why should I place any faith in your predictions.

    No brushing this off. It’s like saying the global market for tomatoes worldwide is 10. Ten what? Bushels, containers siloes or cardboard boxes.

    Bloody dimwits.

    An even bigger market for storage batteries is home produced electricity via solar panels and wind chargers. The off the grid community is growing by leaps and bounds, an two things are holding this back: 1. Costs are still too high for both batteries and solar panels. 2. the existing battery technology is lagging behind requirements, and better and cheaper deep charge batteries are required. If these problems can be overcome, the sky is the limit.
