Increasing deployment of microgrids
A microgrid is a small-scale, localized power station than can either operate independently or in congruence with the main central grid. As a way to incorporate renewables, microgrid often involves multiple energy resources such as solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, and fossil fuel generators. With the integration of renewable power sources, it can function as hybrid and operates independently to supply power to a local community, a university, or a military base among others.
A microgrid is connected to the central grid as a single point of load and usually accompanied by energy storage systems to address the intermittency of the renewables, and the entire network is managed by an energy management system.
“Microgrids are more resilient to natural calamities than traditional grids and provide power to a limited geography when the main grid fails. A major portion of rural and remote areas in Southeast Asia are yet to have access to electricity. With the growing deployment of microgrids in Southeast Asia, the market for lead-acid batteries is likely to grow,” says Thanikachalam Chandrasekaran, a lead analyst at Technavio for energy storage research.
Improved consumer spending
Consumer spending is a substantial economic factor since it usually matches with the consumer confidence in a nation’s economy. High consumer confidence indicators characteristically relate to upper levels of consumer spending in the economic market.
The growth in urbanization and increase in the number of earning members in a family have led to an increase in disposable income in Southeast Asia. As a result, products such as automobiles, power tools, gardening equipment among others have become affordable for a majority of the population. Lead-acid batteries operate most of this equipment. Thus, an increase in consumer confidence has resulted in the rise in sales of consumer goods which adds impetus to the lead-acid battery market in Southeast Asia.
Change in energy mix
The growing population and economic development in ASEAN countries has led to an upsurge in consumption and demand for power. Fossil fuels held a dominant position in the energy mix, but burning fossil fuels for power generation releases high amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) into the atmosphere. This compelled governments in the region to focus on clean and sustainable energy resources such as wind, solar, and biomass, which have a lesser impact on the environment. The result was a diversification of energy supply resources, with renewables occupying a significant share in the region's energy mix.
“The increasing integration of renewable resources in energy production spurred the need for durable power backup power systems to compensate for the intermittency of renewables. Therefore, governments have been supporting such technologies with the aid of lucrative policies, incentives, and rebates, which augurs well for the growth of the lead-acid battery market in Southeast Asia,” says Thanikachalam.
