Global Energy Storage Systems (ESS) Market Outlook to 2028

Market Research Reports | Q1 2024 | Report ID: BR0187

About the Report

Energy storage systems provide a wide array of technological approaches to managing our power supply to create a more resilient energy infrastructure and bring cost savings to utilities and consumers. 




Increasing intermittency of variable renewable energy sources such as wind and solar


In the energy sector, wind and solar PV power generation technologies have spread globally rapidly. The International Renewable Energy Agency's (IRENA) renewable power generation costs 2021 report states that more than half of the renewable capacity added in 2021 achieved lower power costs than the cheapest new coal plant.


Innovation and low-cost finance have brought down the costs of solar PV and wind, and they are now the most economical source of electricity in most markets. But due to its unreliable nature, the power generated is stored in batteries or others to utilize generated energy when needed.


Some of the Other Drivers:

  • Increase in the number of grid stability ESS projects that provide ancillary services
  • Increasing demand for uninterrupted power supply.
  • Growing energy intensive industries such as data centers and others.
  • Solar plus storage is becoming increasingly popular in the residential market.
  • Time-shifting avoids high tariffs on electricity by utilizing stored energy at times of the day when electricity use is at its highest.


Energy Storage System (ESS) is a device or group of devices assembled to convert the electrical or thermal energy from power systems and store energy to supply electrical energy at a later time when needed.


Several methods or technologies store energy, such as mechanical, electrochemical, chemical, and thermal.


Mechanical Energy Storage Systems:

  • Mechanical energy storage systems are the storage of energy by applying force to an appropriate medium to deliver acceleration, compression, or displacement (against gravity); the process can be reversed to recover the stored kinetic or potential energy.
  • They are different types of mechanical energy storage systems:
    • Pumped Hydro Storage (PHS)
    • Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES)
    • Flywheel
    • Liquid Air Energy Storage (LAES)
    • Pumped Heat Electrical Storage (PHES)
    • Adiabatic Compressed Air Energy Storage (ACAES)
    • Liquid Air Energy Storage (LAES)


Electrochemical or Battery Energy Storage Systems:

  • Electrochemical energy storage systems are defined as – the storage of energy by converting electrical energy into chemical energy; the process can be reversed by converting chemical energy into electrical energy.
  • They are different types of electrochemical energy storage systems:
    • Lead acid Batteries
    • Lithium-ion Batteries
    • Redox Flow Batteries


Thermal Energy Storage Systems:

  • Thermal energy storage systems are the technology that allows the transfer and storage of heat energy or energy from ice or cold air, or water. This method is built into new technologies that complement energy solutions such as solar and hydro.
  • They are different types of thermal energy storage systems:
    • Molten Salt TESS
    • Phase Change Material


Chemical Energy Storage:

  • Chemical energy storage systems are defined as - Energy stored in chemical fuels that can be readily converted to mechanical, thermal, or electrical energy for industrial and grid applications.
  • They are different types of chemical energy storage systems:
    • Power to Hydrogen gas
    • Power to Methane gas


Energy Storage Systems in Utilities:


The power generation sector is moving away from coal (a fossil fuel with high carbon density) and adopting renewable power plants to reduce carbon footprint, which helps countries across the region to meet their Net Zero targets of 2050.


Utility-scale energy storage systems can enable a greater feed-in of renewables into the grid by storing excess generation and firming renewable energy output. On the other hand, increasing renewable energy generation by supporting energy storage helps reduce electricity prices and different transmission systems.


Energy Storage Systems in Industrial:


Energy Storage Systems is expected to decarbonize the world, including the industrial sector, significantly. Energy-intensive industries such as iron, steel, paper, pharmaceuticals, fertilizers, and chemicals are increasingly adopting thermal energy storage systems in their attempt to reduce pollution and meet the targets set by regulatory bodies. 


Energy Storage Systems in Residential:


Renewable Energy Storage System is one of the niche markets within the Energy Storage Systems with a high growth potential due to feed-in tariff policies and also to increase the reliability of electricity. Residential ESS networks generally work with photovoltaic systems, where DC voltages are not that high and usually not superior to 500V DC. 


Energy Storage Systems Trends:


Rising Interest in transmission and distribution deferral systems:

Power transmission companies worldwide are considering energy storage technology to defer or replace transmission system upgrades. Energy storage is placed along a transmission line and operated to inject or absorb the power, mimicking transmission line flows.


Some of the Energy Storage System trends:

  • The growing use of solid-state batteries in residential energy storage systems
  • The increasing number of partnerships for large-scale hydrogen projects
  • The growing number of P2G projects


Energy Storage Systems Opportunities:

  • Increasing demand for EV charging stations
  • The market growth in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Greece can be attributed to the increasing renewable energy generation and grid stability.


Energy Storage System Restraints:

  • Increasing the fuel cell market will decrease the demand for ESS.
  • High Capital Expenditure is required for the installation of energy storage systems.
