Rising environmental concerns in conjunction to strict regulatory mandates to curtail emissions through the integration of effective energy conservation measures will drive the global solar energy storage market growth. Moreover, ongoing enhancements & upgrades with an aim to entail a cost-competitive business scenario will positively influence industry dynamics. Moreover, harnessing the synergy among intermittent renewable power and demand side electrification is the key factor influencing the technological adoption.

Solar Energy Storage Market, By Composition

Lead acid batteries have been among the first and widely deployed rechargeable battery in terms of technology, based on the number of installations and cumulated installed capacity. The technology feature good cost-performance ratio across a wide range of applications complementing its adoption across the market. However, low energy density, heavy structure, poor deep discharging response adhered by lead composition are few parameters restraining the business growth.

Lithium ion segment has benefitted from large scale investments on account of their versatility enabling their deployment across a wide tandem of applications. The chemistry possesses comprehensive cost reduction potential through an increase in scale of production capacity, material improvements, and competitive supply chains. In addition, large scale development of EVs favoured by ongoing stationary solar integration will further complement the industry outlook.

Solar Energy Storage Market, By Capacity

< 1000 kW solar energy storage market will gain momentum on account of significant growth potential across applications behind the meter, primarily in small scale systems associated with PV installation. Regulatory inclination towards self-consumption and further response to incentives from distribution companies and grid operators with an aim to manage grid feed-in will positively influence the business potential. Furthermore, as BES integration increase favoured by declining costs, retrofits of the batteries with small scale photovoltaics is anticipated to emerge as a factor driving energy storage demand.

> 10000 kW solar energy storage market will grow with several nations identifying the imperative reforms required to support rising variable renewable energy (VRE) shares. Integration of ancillary services to the grid and the characterization of granular markets to remunerate individual services including primary & secondary frequency reserves, firm capacity and others. In terms of BES services, behind the meter storage economics will positively sway the industry dynamics.

Solar Energy Storage Market, By Installation

Off-grid renewable energy solutions, including stand-alone systems & mini-grids, have emerged as a prominent, cost-competitive solution to provide access to electricity. Rapid progress has been made as technology costs have plummeted favoured by innovation in delivery models & financing catering a diverse set of stakeholders including communities, local entrepreneurs & the private sector. Henceforth, positive industry and regulatory outlook favoured by positive consumer tendencies to integrate a self-aggregated sustainable electric scenario will comprehensively foster the market share.

Regulators across the globe have continuously been focussed towards the extension and development of plans, reforms, and schemes to support grid-scale solar deployments. Portfolio standards, clean energy drives, green bonds, and renewable certificates are a few regulatory measures concerned with renewable deployment across the respective regions. Although, the regulatory and industrial prospects pose a significant growth potential, the market continues to witness a modest growth subject to the persisting financial impediments.

Solar Energy Storage Market, By Region

Asia Pacific solar energy storage market is anticipated to grow over 40% by 2025. Nations across the region have committed to emission reduction and have further linked these aspirations to partial decarbonization. The post-COP21 period has witnessed a rapid expansion of the green bond industry, signalling higher investor inclination toward new renewable projects. The existing fiscal incentives and regulatory policies available across the region favour these prospects. As solar is a relatively abundant energy source, many countries have induced medium to long-term policies to reinforce renewable growth in their overall energy portfolio.
