A new report from Navigant Research tracks global energy storage projects, providing data on the country, region, market segment, capacity, status, technology vendor, systems integrator, applications, funding, investment, and key milestones of each effort.
Energy storage has become a standalone solution that provides customers and system owners with flexibility and profitability. In addition, thanks to advanced battery energy storage systems, projects are being deployed in the shortest timelines in the history of the industry
“The global energy storage industry is poised to continue to grow quickly over the next several years, especially in emerging economies,” says Ian McClenny, research analyst with Navigant Research. “With emerging infrastructure becoming increasingly integrated, dynamic, and complex, flexible resources like storage will provide added value to existing and new power generating assets.”
Navigant Research anticipates that energy storage will increasingly become a practical option to grid and substation upgrades to meet changes in load, according to the report. Additionally, improvements in energy storage technologies, regional regulatory and market drivers, and new business models are all expected to drive the market forward.
The report, Energy Storage Tracker 3Q17, provides a comprehensive resource of global energy storage projects. The Tracker includes a database of 1,712 projects and tracks the country, region, market segment, capacity, status, technology vendor, systems integrator, applications, funding, investment, and key milestones of each project.
In addition, the report includes an analysis of the technology choice within each major region for energy storage, analysis of the leading regions for energy storage capacity and projects, and market share analysis for technology vendors for deployed projects and projects in the pipeline.
