A recent article in the online magazine Utility Dive reports that the current COVID-19 pandemic could lead to an increase in the appreciation of decentralized energy storage systems. The article mainly refers to the United States in its forecast; The uncertainty of the current global situation also makes the vulnerability of conventional energy supply systems visible. Similar tendencies have been observed in the past at other times of crisis, for example due to natural disasters. In the past, the US state of California in particular had made significant investments in storage technologies for the residential sector to ensure energy security during turbulent times. The population itself is also increasingly aware that solar and storage technologies can offer stability and independence. In addition to California government officials, the Utility Dive article also includes assessments by U.S. research institutions, consulting companies, and the U.S. Energy Storage Association.
