Energy Storage Tracker 2Q21

The energy storage industry remains diverse in the exact shape and structure of markets around the world. A key global trend is that the early stages of a market’s development typically include projects that are smaller and focused on single applications, often grid stability services such as frequency regulation. As markets mature, new projects tend to shift to target more substantial multi-revenue stream opportunities for capacity and reserve services, including combined renewables plus storage plants.

Several key factors continue to increase the global need for energy storage deployments. Expensive peaker plants that traditionally run on fossil fuels are being replaced with advanced battery energy storage systems. Distributed energy storage systems (DESSs) strengthen the resiliency of unstable grids. Storage opportunities allow solar and wind to continue dominating new energy capacity additions.

This Guidehouse Insights report provides a comprehensive resource of global energy storage projects. The Tracker includes a database of 5,021 energy storage-specific projects and tracks the country, region, market segment, capacity, status, technology vendor, systems integrator, applications, funding, investment, and key milestones of each project. It also includes an analysis of the technology choice within each major region for energy storage, analysis of the leading regions for energy storage capacity and projects, and market share analysis for technology vendors for deployed and future projects.
