Tuesday, 15. August 2017 09:50

Dublin, Aug. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Grid Scale Energy Storage Technologies Market, 2017-2030" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The Grid Scale Energy Storage Technologies Market, 2017-2030 report provides a comprehensive analysis of the current market landscape and a detailed future outlook of the large scale energy storage technologies. The study highlights various energy storage technologies that are currently commercially available or are under development.

These technologies can be classified as mechanical energy storage, chemical energy storage, electrochemical energy storage, thermal energy storage or electromagnetic energy storage technologies. The industry has long revolved around pumped hydro energy storage, which currently contributes close to 95% of the global energy storage capacity. However, several geographical and environmental constraints associated with it are likely to limit its growth in the long term.

As a result, stakeholders have developed/are developing novel energy storage technologies to overcome the limitations of conventional systems. The primary focus of this study is on these novel/upcoming energy storage technologies, including different types of battery storage, compressed air energy storage, concentrated solar power/molten salt energy storage, flywheel energy storage and power-to-gas energy storage.

The study provides a holistic coverage of the developments that are impacting the current energy storage setup and are likely to drive significant changes in energy management approaches in the long term. We were able to identify close to 170 energy storage technologies (excluding PHES) segmented across aforementioned categories.
