Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard: Utility-Scale Energy Storage Systems Integrators

Assessment of Strategy and Execution for 13 Utility-Scale Energy Storage Systems Integrators

The utility-scale energy storage (UES) market has grown increasingly competitive since 2018. With cumulative UES deployment revenue projected to exceed $188 billion by 2029, the market represents a significant opportunity. Driven largely by the increasing use of solar and wind generation, interest is mounting in energy storage to maintain grid stability and increase efficiency by allowing nonessential fossil fuel power plants to close. In this environment, UES is considered a key component of new power system planning efforts in countries around the world, representing a major shift from 2018 when the technology was still largely considered too expensive or complex for integration into energy markets. As the market matures, the role of utility-scale energy storage systems integrators (UESSIs) has become the key position in the value chain for ensuring that projects are successfully built and that they become profitable.

Although several competing UES technologies with differing characteristics are matched for certain applications, battery energy storage systems (ESSs) are emerging as the leading technology globally for new projects. Thus, this Leaderboard is focused on battery technologies and the companies responsible for their integration. There are three additional criteria that companies in the market must meet to be included in this report. First, UESSI companies must have a pure‑play focus on the UES systems market, referring to larger projects installed on the transmission and distribution (T&D) grid. Second, UESSI companies included in this report have all been active with projects integrated since 2018. Finally, companies included all have UES projects in more than one country.

This Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard evaluates the Strategy and Execution of 13 UESSIs. Using Guidehouse Insights’ proprietary Leaderboard methodology, vendors are profiled, rated, and ranked to provide industry participants with an objective assessment of these companies’ relative strengths and weaknesses in the global market for UES integration. These companies are rated on 12 criteria: vision; go-to-market strategy; partners; production strategy; technology; geographic reach; sales, marketing, and distribution; product performance; product quality and reliability; product portfolio; pricing; and staying power.
