Advanced Energy Storage Market propelled by increasing demand for grid-level applications


Energy storage is crucial for meeting increasing energy demand as well as environmental sustainability goals through integration of renewable energy sources into the power grid. Advanced energy storage solutions store electricity generated from renewable sources and deliver it on-demand, thereby allowing greater utilization of clean energy sources. They enable energy shifting from off-peak generation to peak consumption periods, providing backup power during grid outages, and improving power reliability and quality. Moreover, advanced energy storage effectively supports integration of distributed and variable renewable energy by mitigating intermittency issues.

The global Advanced Energy Storage Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 16.9 billion in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.6% over the forecast period 2024-2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

Increasing demand for grid-level applications is one of the major trends driving growth of the advanced energy storage market. Advanced energy storage solutions are increasingly being deployed at the grid-level to store surplus energy produced from renewable sources like solar and wind during off-peak hours and supply it to the grid during peak demand hours. They help in addressing challenges related to intermittent power generation from renewable sources. Rapid integration of variable renewable power and the need for ancillary services and grid balancing are propelling deployment of utility-scale energy storage systems globally. Various energy regulatory bodies have also introduced favorable policies and incentives to promote grid-level energy storage projects.

SWOT Analysis
