Global Advanced Energy Storage Market: Snapshot
Advanced energy storage refers to the process of storing electricity after converting it into energy. The energy is converted back to electricity for later use. Advanced energy storage technologies amass energy from different sources and store it in different mediums for a period of time before supplying it to power or energy providing services. It comprises of conventional as well as novel energy storage technologies such as pumped hydro, battery storage, flywheel, thermal, and hydrogen storage.
The global appetite for electricity is rising at a massive pace owing to factors such as rapid urbanization, industrialization, and the mounting rise in global population. As a result, the need for energy storage is anticipated to remain strong to timely and efficiently supply power to the required end-user. The demand for effective and advanced energy storage technologies is also rising due to development in renewables energy resources, improvement of antiquated utility grid networks, and higher energy demand costs.
Transparency Market Research estimates that the global advanced energy storage market, which had a valuation of US$0.87 bn in 2015, will exhibit a promising 5.4% CAGR from 2016 and 2024 and rise to a valuation of US$1.39 bn by 2024.
Pumped Hydro Storage to Remain Most Preferred Method for Large-scale Storage Purposes
On the basis of technology, the advanced energy storage market has been segmented in the report into pumped hydro, battery storage, flywheel storage, and thermal storage. Of these, the segment of pumped hydro storage accounted for more than 90% share in the global market in 2015. The massive share of the segment in the global advanced energy storage market is attributed to the fact that it is the most economical technology for large-scale energy storage.
For photovoltaic systems, battery storage is the most popular choice. Lithium-ion batteries are most common for power generation in mobiles and laptops but need more improvement for power generation applications. Battery storage is still expensive due to a number of factors such as need for new technologies, overcharge protection, and improved reliability and safety.
