Growing need for grid resiliency to support increasingly electrified networks including transportation, HVAC, manufacturing, and data will further drive the industry growth.
Sellbyville, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/10/2019 -- The U.S. energy storage market share has been surging year on year as renewable energy utilization comes to the forefront replacing fossil fuel energy sources. According to experts, energy storage can become a market disruptor as it is fast emerging as a new technology with enhanced capabilities and cost saving that no incumbent technology can even begin to approach. As a result, energy storage capacity across the U.S. seemingly surpassed 1,000 megawatt-hours in 2017, which is a record in itself and has nearly doubled in 2018 adding another 1,000 megawatt-hours of capacity.

The U.S. energy storage market is anticipated to continue its exponential growth graph as storage continues to get cheaper, out-competing other resources, as a sea of change is registered in the mix of resources that run the power grid. Recent instances of contracts signed in the U.S. such as the NV Energy in Nevada and Xcel Energy in Colorado have also helped in furthering the prospects for U.S. energy storage industry.
While NV Energy has made it to the headlines with a contract to build 1000mega-watt of solar energy with 100 mega-watt of storage, Xcel Energy has set a new solar-plus-storage record with a median price of $36 per hour which is lower than the cheapest PV-plus-battery power-purchase agreement till date by as much as 20%. Many other such developments are in the pipeline that will allow solar production to extend past sunset and into the evening when demand peaks, making it competitive in respect to energy supplied by natural gas or fossil fuel resources.
Not only lowered cost for renewable energy resources but also state policies will also contribute towards the deployment of energy storage systems and consequently the expansion of U.S. energy storage market, with more batteries being installed in homes, businesses and along the power grid.
A fact that deserves special mention is that the U.S. home energy storage in 2018 witnessed more deployment than the front-of-meter storage deployment in the last quarter of the year. According to the U.S. Energy Storage Monitor the residential segment led the way in energy storage deployment, growing tenfold year-over-year.

Concentration for residential deployment of energy storage systems have been most noticeable in two states, namely, California and Hawaii, which have together accounted for 72% of megawatt-hours in the last quarter of 2018 while Massachusetts with its new SMART program and Arizona, is expected to see some new tariff structures, and is a key contender for the third spot in the residential segment of U.S. energy storage market.
The U.S. energy storage market has received a major boost from the fact that storage system costs have decreased roughly by two thirds over the last five years while more states have mandated utilities to procure storage systems. As consumers have come to realize that pairing batteries or energy storage with renewable energy projects improves reliability of power supply without creating greenhouse emissions, more homeowners and businesses are showing preference for power with backup energy storage and the option to capture and store excess energy produced in rooftop systems which can later be utilized after sundown, or when the wind is not blowing.

With large storage systems for utilities capturing a major portion of the U.S. energy storage industry and more utilities including storage in their solicitations for solar projects, U.S. energy storage market is expected to witness robust growth over 2018-2024. The U.S. energy storage market has been evaluated to amount to $4 billion by 2024 – a commendable upsurge from the $400 million worth in 2017.
Increasing share of renewables in the national grid facilitated by several fiscal incentives and ventures will stimulate the U.S. energy storage market size. The share of renewable in the California energy mix has been growing exponentially, thereby supporting the industry growth. In addition, legislative mandate to increase renewable generation to achieve emissions reductions targets will positively influence the industry outlook.
Key industry participants active in the U.S. energy storage market comprise Duke Energy, East Penn Manufacturing, E.ON, EDF Renewable Energy, GE Power, EnerVault, LG Chem, Fluence Energy, Invenergy, Johnson Controls, Tesla, SolarEdge, and ABB amongst others.
