Current State of Energy Storage: Technology and Markets


-- nascent market, major players, utility resource planning, technologies, cumulative capacity by 2030 ...

Global energy storage capacity could grow at a CAGR of 31%, recording 741 GWh of cumulative capacity by 2030, according to Wood Mackenzie. Energy storage, still a nascent market, is starting to be part of utility resource planning in tandem with solar or on a stand-alone basis. Regulations at the federal and state level are making energy storage part of the energy transition and helping replace gas-fired peaker plants. The U.S. maintains pole position and will make up over 49% or 365 GWh of global cumulative capacity by 2030. This presentation will provide a snapshot of where we are today in energy storage — market dynamics, major players, utility planning, current technologies and new advanced technologies that aim to compete with the incumbent lithium-ion battery technology.
