Energy storage has been a hot topic in the solar and e-mobility landscape over the last couple of years, and it is only getting hotter. Stationary battery storage solutions, sometimes referred to as battery energy storage systems (BESS), are systems designed to store electrical energy. These systems serve a variety of energy optimisation purposes, ultimately improving the quality, reliability, and affordability of electricity across residential, commercial, industrial, and utility segments.
However, many organisations have tunnel vision on the subject of energy storage. For many, lithium-ion batteries are the beginning, middle, and end of the discussion. Largely that is because of Elon Musk and Tesla, who have built their incredible history of success both in transportation and energy storage on lithium-ion batteries. Yet, there are other types of storage solutions, many of which will begin to share the spotlight with lithium-ion batteries in 2020. Today, various battery technologies are available in the market, which includes Lithium-ion, Lead-acid, Sodium-Sulfur, Zinc-based, and Vanadium-Redox. Depending on the technology used, the battery storage system will perform differently in terms of capacity, response time, discharge time, and depth of discharge.
The continued expansion on the scope of offerings from energy storage solution providers will appeal to companies that are looking to modernised energy saving solutions and increase their bottom line. At this juncture, there is a wide variety of CROs entering the industry with a set of advanced and integrated offerings, and finding the right energy storage company to partner with can sometimes be challenging.
