Popularity of Pumped Hydro Propels Market Share of Mechanical Storage Technologies

Depending upon the type of technology, the global energy storage systems market can be divided into electro chemical, thermal storage, mechanical energy storage, and others. Electrochemical storage can be again divided into lithium-ion battery, lead acid battery, sodium sulfur (NaS) battery, flow battery, and others such as nickel metal hydride (NIMH), nickel cadmium battery (NICD), and nickel iron battery. Currently, the electrochemical storage technologies are seeing maximum uptake and in the years ahead is predicted to expand at a healthy clip.

The mechanical storage technologies, again, can be divided into pumped hydro energy storage, flywheel energy storage and compressed air, and liquid air energy storage. It accounts for the leading share in the market at present owing to the soaring use of pumped hydro. While thermal storage are expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% between 2017 and 2025.

China’s Booming Electric Vehicle Sales Catapults Asia Pacific Market to Fore

From a geographical standpoint, Asia Pacific leads both in terms of market share and growth pace. By registering a CAGR of 6.0% from 2017 to 2025, the energy storage systems market in the region is projected to attain a value of 16.5 bn by 2025. The market in the region is being driven mainly by the rising sales of electric vehicles and China is at the forefront of it. This is because strict policies pertaining to pollution that has encouraged take-up of electric vehicles in the region. Besides, China is also an international nerve center of battery manufacturing. Many other highly populated and polluted nations, namely India are following suit and this is expected to stoke impressive growth in the market in the years ahead too.

North America trails Asia Pacific in terms of market share. The market in the region is mostly driven by the U.S. and Canada. Growing thrust on electricity cost reduction and need for energy efficient devices are expected to result in higher demand for energy storage systems within the residential and automotive end-use segments. The TMR report forecasts the market to rise at a steady CAGR of 5.6% in the forecast period to become worth US$14.6 bn by 2025.

Some of the key companies in the global energy storage systems market are ABB Ltd., BYD Company Limited, EOS Energy Storage, Evapco, Inc., Maxwell Technologies, Inc., General Electric Company, Hitachi, Ltd., LG Chem, Ltd., NEC Corporation, Panasonic Corporation, Schneider Electric SE, Siemens AG, and Tesla.

Energy Storage System Market - Snapshot

Energy storage system applications are used to meet peak power demands and high power switching in a short time. The peak power supplies are power plants that can be switched on and off for a short time in the traditional structure. It is inevitable to use energy storage system within advanced power systems. In the traditional structure, gas turbines and hydroelectric power plants are used as such peak power sources. These plants are systems with high investment costs, and the use of natural gas fuel causes greenhouse gas emissions. Instead, the use of RES supported by energy storage applications or the use of energy storage directly in conjunction with conventional power plants may be an alternative.

By using hydropower plants as pumping hydropower plants, an energy storage system can be provided. Thus, the demand power curve is changed in a more limited range. Most energy storage applications have much faster response times than conventional peak power plants. Demand-side management functions can be realized by central operators of distributed energy storage applications. In such an operating system, distributed energy storage applications can be operated as a whole block or as independent units depending on the need. By supplying peak power requirement from energy storage systems, it is possible to operate traditional generation plants at optimum capacity. Thus, it can be beneficial in terms of operating life and contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emission values.

An interesting application of energy storage system for end users is demand charge management. The objective of this application is the reduction of energy demand with an aim to offset or avoid peak energy demand charges. Utility tariffs for commercial end users include distinct charges for power and energy; that is why the opportunity of managing demand charge exists. Demand charges (power-related) are evaluated based on the maximum power used by the customer.
