LONDON, April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Visiongain's analysis indicates that the grid scale battery storage market will reach $1.2bn in 2013. The grid scale battery market is one of the most vibrant sectors of electricity market. A large number of innovative companies are striving to bring their battery products up to the standards required to penetrate this high potential industry.
The growing penetration of intermittent and decentralised power generation in a number of countries around the world is causing considerable stresses on transmission systems designed for more consistent centralised power generation. Improving the efficiency of transmission through smart grids and optimised transmission infrastructure using energy storage creates considerable cost savings on generation fuel costs, lowering greenhouse gas emissions and slashing of power wastages related to backup and spinning reserves. Batteries will play a key role in this development as they can be used for power management (peak shaving) and power quality (voltage fluctuation), both key issues in improving the transmission of electricity. The grid scale battery storage market is a fledging and vibrant market with much potential for future growth.
The lead analyst of the Grid Scale Battery Storage Market report commented that 'Large scale battery storage remains an expensive method of improving efficiencies in the grid, and as such incentives or subsidies remain essential to the market. Ownership of storage capacity by transmission and distribution companies is vague in many countries and amendments to this would enable them to own energy storage assets, providing more efficient electricity transmission. While utilities remain slow on storage uptake, the growing penetration of renewable energy forces the requirement of energy storage to smooth out intermittency in generation. Grid scale batteries therefore play a critical role in the future of electricity supply.'
