Tesla’s Stationary Storage Strategy: ‘Everywhere We Look, There’s an Opportunity’

This week's Energy Gang podcast looks at storage and Tesla's plans to sell batteries for use not only in Tesla's electric cars, but also for storing electricity for use on the grid:

Tesla is just beginning to expand beyond EVs and move deeper into grid-scale storage, behind-the-meter storage and solar-battery combination systems, potentially making it more than just a boutique automobile producer.

“Everywhere we look, there's an opportunity for storage,” said Mateo Jaramillo, Tesla’s director of powertrain business development, speaking on this week’s Energy Gang podcast.

In this week’s podcast, we’re live at Greentech Media’s Solar Market Insight conference. Tesla’s Jaramillo and California Public Utilities Commissioner Michael Picker join us to discuss the emerging markets for battery storage, including synergies with the solar industry.
