IHS Markit Technology analysts attended Solar Power International in Las Vegas last week. The increase in the number of exhibitors and attendance at the show was a reflection of the fact that the United States offers perhaps the best business opportunities to international and domestic solar companies. With the long-term outlook for the US industry buoyed by the extension of the Investment Tax Credit (ITC), a wide array of international suppliers were present at the show aiming to capitalize on this opportunity.

On 13 September 2016, investor owned utility Southern California Edison (SCE) announced contracts awarded to six developers for a total of 125 MW of multi-hour behind-the-meter energy storage and demand response projects to be built by 2020, as part of its Preferred Resources Pilot. Winning candidates include Advanced Microgrid Solutions (AMS), Convergent Energy & Power, Hecate, NextEra, NRG and Swell. The same week SCE awarded two additional contracts for utility-side-of-meter projects for a combined 22 MW/88 MWh to Powin Energy and Tesla as part of its efforts to replace gas peakers using natural gas from the Alison Canyon gas storage facility. The two latter projects are expected to be commissioned during the winter of 2016/17.
