For the past year, developers and others around the country have had growing interest in hybrid resources involving battery storage coupled with power generation, particularly non-dispatchable solar and wind power. The significant increase in the number of hybrid resources appearing in interconnection queues is evidence of this trend. According to a recent study, 4.6 GW of hybrid resource capacity is online today, 14.7 GW of hybrid resources are in the immediate development pipeline, and 69 GW of hybrid resources are in select interconnection queues.
