Market outlook of the global advanced energy storage systems market
Technavios research analyst predicts the global advanced energy storage systems market to grow steadily at a CAGR of close to 14% during the forecast period. Energy storage technology is used to store surplus electricity that can be utilized during power shortages, blackouts, and peak hours of demand. The growing demand for electricity worldwide coupled with an imminent need to reduce the demand-supply gap has prompted power utilities to adopt advanced energy storage.
The market is also witnessing a rising trend in the installations of wind and solar PVs, thus augmenting the demand for advanced energy storage. Countries worldwide are using advanced ESS to overcome the intermittent nature of renewable energy resources. However, the growth of the global advanced energy storage market is curtailed by several challenges such as cost competitiveness as these systems are expensive as compared to conventional systems.
End-user segmentation and analysis of the global advanced energy storage market
Thermal energy storage
Compressed air storage
The thermal energy storage (TES) segment dominated the market in 2015 with a market share of close to 42%. It is gaining importance as it helps in mitigating the intermittent nature of solar PVs. TES systems play a crucial role in electricity storage through concentrating solar power (CSP) plants wherein solar heat can be stored and used for electricity production in the absence of sunlight. It helps to enhance the utilization rate of power plants by 60%-75%. It also finds key application in nuclear power storage and helps meet critical peak demand by achieving higher power outputs.
Geographical segmentation and analysis of the global advanced energy storage market
North America holds nearly 45% share of the overall installed capacity of advanced energy storage systems as of 2015. State-level participation and growing investments in grid storage projects have fueled the growth of the grid energy storage market in North America. The US government has initiated the EV Everywhere Grand Challenge Blueprint, which promises to raise the number of EVs to one million by 2015 in a bid to reduce CO2 emissions. Adoption of EVs fosters the use of Li-Ion batteries as an efficient means of energy storage thereby reducing costs.
