More than 148 megawatts of energy storage were deployed in the first quarter (Q1) of 2019, a 232 percent increase over Q1 2018, according to the Wood Mackenzie U.S. Energy Storage Monitor. Front-of-the-meter (FTM) deployments rose more than 500 percent year-over-year.

The top markets for FTM deployments were New Jersey, Arizona, and Massachusetts. California led the way in both residential and non-residential behind-the-meter deployments.
