Storage for the Smart Grid has definitely been on the radar lately. Several recent articles have brought this sector into the forground. We start with a bold statement of market growth. A total of $4B is not huge, but 10x growth in a decade is nothing to sneeze at. The details are here, but I don't think it counts PHEV batteries as part of 'grid storage'.

On the technical side, the Electicity Storage Association has a great overview of storage methods, as well as significant players in each.
