Where Are the Opportunities for Wind and Storage?

We hear a lot about solar and storage. How about wind and storage?

A lot of developers and financiers are trying to figure out the business case — and we're helping them.

In a few days, we’re heading to Chicago to meet up with our sister company, MAKE Consulting to host the first edition of GTM Forum: Wind and Storage.

With wind a dominant part of the renewable energy mix, now is the right time to consider how to use batteries to take advantage of price spikes and shift energy to when it's needed most. The future renewable grid depends on
