Community Energy Storage and Microgrids Becoming Game Changers for Countries Keen on Promoting DES

Distributed Energy storage (DES) is inevitable in an era of increasing energy demand. The flexibility of smaller energy storage at multiple locations makes it economically and technically viable, attracting many industrial, commercial, and residential units. Community energy storage (CES) and microgrids are the most widely installed type of DES because of their scale and flexibility. This study discusses the opportunities for DES globally, indicating international hotspots, key stakeholders, business models, technologies, and the value chain used in this market. Key participants are also listed in detail.

Key Findings
-Distributed Energy Storage (DES) is gaining momentum to improve grid reliability and to ensure power quality during times of power outage (caused by hurricanes and other natural disasters).
-DES will witness significant deployment from 2015 to 2020, when the installations are moving from government funding towards investor-owned entities.
-Countries with huge renewable energy generation are in a need to store it effectively. This drives DES. Therefore, the US, Germany, Japan and China become natural hotspots.
-Mandate for implementing smart grids makes DES important as smart grids are incomplete without DES.
-A well-established business model in place, with integrators, developers, O&M contractors working with government regulations, paves ground for a competitive market in future.
-Market opportunity for DES is both from geographical regions and from the storage capacity. Although grid-level is at a higher storage capacity ( to MW), industrial, commercial, and residential units with smaller storage capacity (up to MW) are gaining momentum.
-Availability of proven technology such as energy storage battery management system, inverters, and integrators, encourages adoption by the utilities and commercial establishments.
