    QUICK NEWS, May 20: HOT PLAYERS IN ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEMS MRKT; FLA MISSING OUT ON SOLAR OPPORTUNITY; SIEMENS TARGETS U.S., LATIN WIND MARKETS

    HOT PLAYERS IN ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEMS MRKT Navigant Research Leaderboard Report: Energy Storage Systems Integrators Assessment of Strategy and Execution for 12 Energy Storage Systems Integrators

    2Q 2015 (Navigant Research)

    “…One area of critical importance for the energy storage market is energy storage systems integration (ESSI). This is particularly important in the utility and commercial storage segments, which are growing quickly but often require customization and lengthy interaction with the end user…Systems integrators possess the technical and experiential capability to physically integrate hardware and software components into a working energy storage system (ESS) that meets an end user’s requirements…Players that have differentiated themselves include firms with strong, compelling, and scalable models and ESSI offers…[that] have well-thought out strategies with innovative offers that are responsive to observable market demand…” click here for more

    FLA MISSING OUT ON SOLAR OPPORTUNITY Sunshine State' or Not, Florida Badly Behind on Solar Power

    Jason Dearen, May 19, 2015 (AP via ABC News)

    “…Florida ranks third in the nation in rooftop solar energy potential but 13th in the amount of solar energy generated, according to industry estimates…The industry views Florida as a sleeping giant that could rival California in solar potential…[Utilities say solar, with 2 percent of the market, is growing slowly in Florida because energy costs are 30 percent lower than the national average, making it a bad financial choice] but renewable energy experts say the state lags behind because old laws [make it one of only four states that require solar energy be sold exclusively by utilities, banning sales from companies that install rooftop solar panels at little or no cost and then sell the energy generated to the property owner. A 2016 ballot initiative would change Florida's constitution to allow businesses other than utilities to sell solar power to consumers and drive solar growth]…” click here for more
