Global Energy Storage Market Outlook 2018: Residential ESS and Molten Salt Thermal Storage Will Record Strong Growth, as New Business Models Continue to Emerge -

DUBLIN--()--The "Global Energy Storage Market Outlook, 2018" report has been added to's offering.

The energy storage market is being swept by a wave of disruptive technologies and business models with companies looking to capitalise on this lucrative market. Deep understanding of the BESS technologies is currently a roadblock to its widespread adoption. Companies should embrace technologies such as energy storage virtual power plants to not only reduce the demand charges during the peak demand period but also offer a revenue generation opportunity by participating in the utilities' DR programs and other load-balancing programs.

Integration of innovative business models and multiple revenue streams such as revenue stacking must be adopted by the storage providers to tap the full potential while enhancing the attractiveness of the energy storage solutions. This outlook deliverable highlights the key trends in the energy storage industry for the year 2018.

It covers alternative energy storage technologies such as thermal energy storage (TES), flywheel energy storage (FES), compressed air energy storage (CAES), and supercapacitors and batteries that are used for renewable energy storage, as well as in consumer, industrial, and electric vehicles. It provides the technology forecast, applications, and regional trends (Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North America), along with key government initiatives, value chain analysis, and emerging companies in the energy storage domain.
