Summary: 

There's no doubt that today's energy storage market is thriving, and only continuing to grow. Better policies are being put into place to help storage make sense and continued education is encouraging more consumers than ever to consider a solar + storage system. Things are good, deployment numbers are up significantly, but there are still a lot of challenges that the market is facing, especially in the behind-the-meter (BTM) sector. K&L Gates, an international, esteemed law firm, just recently published its 4th version of the Energy Storage Handbook which overviews a number of current regulatory and development issues facing project developers in today's market.
