Based on type, the grid-scale batteries available in the market are the lithium-ion battery, lead-acid battery, flow battery, sodium-ion battery, zinc hybrid battery, and others. The lithium-ion batteries are the most efficient for the storage of energy for half-hour to three hours. Owing to its high efficiency, lithium-ion batteries are expected to dominate the grid-scale battery market by type during the forecast period.

The zinc hybrid batteries are at an early stage of introduction in the grid-scale battery market and have efficiencies lower than the lithium-ion batteries. The redox flow batteries have lower efficiency and energy densities as compared to lithium-ion batteries. By applications, the grid-scale battery market is bifurcated based on the use of grid-scale batteries in the renewable energy sector, peak shifting, ancillary services, backup power, and others.

Grid-scale batteries are generally used in renewable energy plants for storing energy. Different governments are planning to increase their renewable energy capacities in order to meet the increasing energy demands and to reduce carbon emissions.

Owing to this the growth of the renewable energy market is likely to drive the sales of the grid-scale batteries in the near future. Additionally, the growth of the renewables is expected to drive the growth of the microgrids in the coming years. The application of grid-scale batteries in the microgrids is thus likely to witness steady growth during the forecast period.

Different grids scale batteries available in the market are facing a battery recycling and disposal problem. The recycling rate of batteries is very less and is posing a threat to the environment. This is expected to hamper the growth of the grid-scale batteries negatively in the coming years.

Regional Analysis

The global grid-scale battery market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. The North America region has taken several steps in order to promote power generation using renewable energy sources. Owing to this the renewable energy market is expected to gain traction in the North America region and aid in the growth of the grid-scale battery market during the forecast period. Europe region has set a goal of fulfilling around 20% of the energy requirements using renewable energy by 2020 owing to which, the renewable energy market in Europe is expected to grow at significant rates in the coming years. The growth of the renewable energy market is likely to drive the sales of the grid-scale batteries in the region. Countries such as Mexico, Brazil, and Chile are highly focused on installing solar photovoltaics and concentrated solar power. Owing to this the grid-scale battery market is expected to witness a healthy growth in Latin America in the near future. The Middle East and Africa region possess a high potential for renewable energy growth owing to the climatic conditions in the region. The local governments in the region are also planning to increase the installed solar and wind energy capacities in the region. Owing to this, the grid-scale battery is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. China, India, and Japan are among the key markets for renewable energy in the Asia Pacific region. Owing to the increasing subsidies by local governments and plans to reduce carbon emissions, different countries in the region are focused on increasing the installed renewable energy capacities in the coming years. The growth of the renewable energy capacities in the Asia Pacific is expected to add in the growth of the grid-scale battery market in the region.

Key Industry Developments

  • In July 2019, a new company based in Canada has announced its plans to introduce a new grid-scale battery for utilities which would offer around four times the lifetime and energy density as compared to the lithium-ion batteries. The company also has stated that the battery will be available at half the price of the lithium-ion battery.
  • In February 2019, an India based company Tata Power inaugurated its grid-scale Lithium-ion battery storage system in the Rohini substation based in Delhi, India. The system is reported to be 10MW/10MWh and is owned by Mitsubishi and AES.
  • In February 2019, Los Angeles has announced its plans to phase out three power plants of natural gas and replace them with the battery storage and renewable energy
