Our cutting-edge knowledge of energy storage market opportunities and project economics further strengthens Wood Mackenzie's offerings in the market during this rapidly changing time in the energy sector.

The Senior Analyst is responsible for analysis of the U.S. energy storage market with a focus on wholesale market opportunities and economic analysis.
