Battery energy storage systems with energy capacity above 500 MWh to witness highest CAGR during the forecast period

Based on energy capacity, the above 500 MWh segment of the battery energy storage system market is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. A battery energy storage system with a high capacity and a low power rating delivers a low amount of electricity for a long time and is sufficient to run a few crucial appliances. These battery storage systems help in running other power plants during times of high electricity demand. The utilities are among the applications that require high capacity energy storage systems. To date, most of the high capacity energy storage system installation projects across the world cater to the utility application. In recent years, due to the growing need for electrification in rural and urban areas, government and private bodies are striving to improve the electric grid system to cater to the energy needs. These systems help the utility meet local capacity requirements and mitigate energy procurement costs. For instance, California investor-owned utility Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) constructed a 182.5MW/730MWh battery energy storage system (BESS) project, which was among four energy storage projects located at Moss Landing Power Plant.

Utilities application to account for the largest market share during the forecast period

The public utility applications or utilities involve the electric grid, a system where the electricity generated at power plants is immediately used by the loads that are connected to it. The generation and consumption of electricity need to be matched at all times, as mismatch leads to the voltage and frequency deviations, and causes power outages and damage to the equipment. To overcome this problem, a battery energy storage system is installed with the electric grids, which controls the voltage and frequency deviations. The battery energy storage system used in utilities is a cost-effective alternative to replace a conventional infrastructure, especially in helping substations and transmission and distribution (T&D) lines to meet growing peak demand.

The battery energy storage system market in APAC is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

APAC held the largest share of the battery energy storage system market in 2019. APAC is a hub for the battery energy storage system industry. APAC is expected to witness plans for electrification in remote areas, which are majorly off-grid in several countries. The use of residential energy storage technology will enable to increase access to electricity for these remote and island communities in the region. Energy storage investments are expected to increase substantially within the region as the governments in growing economies are making new policies to improve the reliability and quality of the power distribution facilities for the residential customers.
