About this course

In this webinar, we explored the dynamics influencing the California C&I solar + storage market in 2022. We reviewed the headwinds and tailwinds we’re seeing in the market today, drawing from data that we’ve compiled from internal and external sources. We shared insights from anonymized aggregated data on over 100k energy storage proposals in California run on the ETB Developer platform, as well as a recent energy storage developer survey we conducted. We discussed trends we’re seeing and shared insights as we forecast where the market is headed in 2022 and beyond.
