The global thermal energy storage market was valued at $3,988 million in 2016 growing at a CAGR of 10.9% from 2017 to 2023 to reach $8,862 million by 2023. Thermal energy storage systems make the use of standard cooling & energy storage equipment to store thermal energy for later use. These systems are widely adopted to store solar energy for space heating during winter and stock cold winter air for air conditioning purposes during summer. Thermal energy storage helps to balance the supply & demand for energy on daily, weekly, & seasonal bases. Moreover, it provides several benefits such as reduced energy consumption, increased flexibility of operations, and reduced initial & maintenance cost. The major sources for thermal energy storage include heat pumps and heat generated by power plants & waste.
These storage systems reduce the demand for energy during peak hours, lower the carbon dioxide emissions, and decrease the energy consumption of end consumers. It is widely employed in thermal power plants, solar power plants to supply dispatchable power even during night, and to utilize heat in process industries.
In 2016, North America dominated the global thermal energy storage market, owing to the high energy storage capacity and increase in penetration of thermal storage specifically in the U.S. In addition, rapid penetration of renewable energy has changed the energy landscape in this region. U.S. was the leading country in the North America thermal energy storage market, followed by Canada. The market is driven by shift to renewable sources of energy and demand for continuous power supply. Moreover, upsurge in demand for thermal energy storage in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) for district heating & cooling boost the market growth. However, lack of awareness with storage technology, additional cost associated with the use of thermal energy storage system, and need of highly skilled technicians to maintain the system are expected to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
The global thermal energy storage market is segmented based on technology, type, end user, and geography. On the basis of technology, it is divided into sensible heat storage, latent heat storage, and thermochemical storage. On the basis of type, it is categorized into water, molten salt, and phase change material. On the basis of end user, it is classified into residential, commercial & industrial, and utility. Geographically, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
In June, 2014, Abengoa, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and the Colorado School of Mines collaborated to developed new solar-thermal storage technology for solar thermal plants. The US Department of Energy invested 1.45 million for this project.
