This is indeed looking good for energy storage, and the investments will continue to rise. In California, PG&E put out a list of 9 major battery storage projects throughout the state, including an expansion of the world's largest battery facility in Moss Landing. However, kinks will need ironing out -- the same Moss Landing plant has been dormant for months because of problems with the facility's technology. Lithium-ion batteries (not to blame in the Moss Landing situation) remain the best tech but they bring their own concerns with overheating.
