Technology Analysis

“Declining cost of batteries and increasing trend towards new storage technology to boost the market globally” 

Residential energy storage is growing rapidly, owing to new deployment incentives, falling costs and adoption of short-term energy storage technology are fuelling a recorded investments towards energy storage. Rising uptake and increasing growth of renewable energy will drives down the cost through innovation and scale, thereby driving the growth of residential energy storage globally. According to International Energy Agency (IEA) shows in 2019, the lithium-ion batteries dominates the storage technologies among other renewable like pumped hydro. 

Low-cost energy storage through increased competition and economy of scale has dropped the costs of energy storage systems globally. Growing demand for electric vehicles, consumer electronics, and government-supported low-cost financing for renewables will spur investments in battery pack manufacturing, thereby expanding the market for battery storage over the forecasted period. The upcoming latest technology like “vanadium redox/flow battery” projected to grab the market especially because their fully containerized, reduced cost, compact, reusable over semi-infinite cycles, nonflammable, do not degrade for more than 20 years, and 100% discharge of stored energy than other V-flow batteries.

Regional Analysis 

“Europe to hold a dominance in residential energy storage market due to government initiatives and policy framework towards energy storage” 

The ongoing dual-price method, increasing cash-out incentives and prices for flexible capacity investments, is potentially expanding the demand for the use of energy storage technologies. Government plays a vital role in steering the transition to clean energy solutions by forming the necessary market regulations, policy framework, financial incentives for private sector, and direct investment on clean energy projects. Furthermore, as a part of green energy initiatives the European Investment Bank Group (EIB) cover equity-type funding, loans, and guarantees to demonstrate the “InnovFin Energy” projects by providing loans, and equity-type financing for energy storage. In addition, in 2017 the transformation of energy mix in Germany have accounted rooftop solar for around 74% of the total solar energy across the country, largely due to advanced supporting mechanisms like grants and loans for roof-top programs.

Moreover, the government of the UK is promoting the adoption of energy storage batteries to meet carbon emission control on a global scale. In 2017, the government of the UK agreed to decrease tax by 5% for the installation of a solar-powered battery system. The aforementioned factors are expected to boost the demand for residential energy storage market over the forecast period.
