Published Date: August 16, 2017 Author: Global Market Insights, Inc.
Pumped Hydro Storage Market size will exceed USD 350 billion by 2024, as reported in the latest study by Global Market Insights, Inc.
Favorable regulatory framework pertaining to the upgradation and expansion of electrical infrastructure coupled with growing adoption of sustainable energy will drive the pumped hydro storage market size. Lack of efficient monitoring system and frequent supply outages across the developing economies will further stimulate the product demand. The China National Energy Administration in 2017 declared a funding of USD 326.4 billion toward the expansion of renewable electrical network by 2020.
Ongoing expansion of micro-grid networks favored by rapid development of distributed generation technology will propel the pumped hydro storage market size. Growing concerns toward reduction of carbon footprint along with upgradation and expansion of existing PHS system to enhance the operational flexibility will propel the business outlook. In 2016, the Government of Canada pledged to reduce emissions by 80% below 2005 levels until 2050.
Japan pumped hydro storage market size is set to exceed 30 GW by 2024. Growing concerns toward energy security along with increasing investments toward deployment of grid network will propel the product landscape. Upsurge across the integration of renewable energy technologies will further stimulate the business outlook. The Japan Ministry of Economy, have announced investments worth USD 700 million in line with the integration of sustainable energy storage technology across the country.
High storage capacity, energy efficiency and grid stability are some of the key parameters that will drive the pumped hydro storage market. According to EASE, the PHS plants have an average efficiency of 70% – 80% when compared with other technologies. Increasing energy demand across emerging economies will further foster the business outlook.
