Welcome to the newsletter from We lead off with an exclusive interview on the strategies for making battery projects in the US stack up, with Key Capture Energy CEO Jeff Bishop the company's director of development in New York, Taylor Quarles. Key Capture has made a name for itself in a fairly short space of time and it was fascinating to hear how they did it, and where they see the market going from here. We heard today that Tesla has won its first Megapack order in Japan, which is a fairly small project but could be indicative of things to come. The August edition of our Podcast is here and you can listen to Liam Stoker and I talk about all things solar and storage that have come across our desks in the past four weeks. Elsewhere: US homeowners are increasingly asking for batteries with their solar, Michigan's utilities have been instructed to help the state's regulator assess the best ways to integrate and monetise energy storage for the grid, grid stability and inertia measurement company Reactive Technologies gets some well-known investors and UK renewables entrepreneur Amit Gudka has kicked off his new battery storage venture with a 160MW project pipeline. Thanks for reading and we hope you enjoy using the site.
