Having secured their first US energy storage system deal, Swiss firm Leclanche will be hoping for a bright future— despite America’s president-elect vowing to de-rail the country’s renewable energy market.

The election of fossil-fuel fan Donald Trump may yet prove a thorn in the US renewable market, but for now Leclanche is celebrating a deal to supply a 20MW/10MWh turnkey system.
