Reportlinker.com has included a new report titled ‘Advanced Batteries for Utility-Scale Energy Storage Applications’ to its offering.
Pike Research’s new report analyzes the business models and market potential for advanced batteries for use in utility-scale energy storage applications, which include renewables integration, transmission and distribution (T&D) deferral, grid asset optimization, arbitrage and ancillary services. The report covers the technical features of cutting-edge battery technologies, which include sodium metal halide, sodium sulfur, lithium ion, advanced flow, and advanced lead-acid batteries.
Increasing electricity demand and expanding adoption of variable renewable energy production are the two driving factors associated with the market potential of advanced batteries in the utility industry. Niche service applications are being created by these two drivers for advanced batteries that incorporate these changeable resources and improve power quality on the grid. In addition, advanced batteries will get opportunities in rural electrification and T&D investment deferral by some global markets.
The report covers the technical variations between key advanced battery technologies. It discusses the advantages of advanced batteries for use in utility-scale energy storage over traditional technologies like pumped hydro storage. It analyzes the major utility-scale applications for advanced batteries and provides data pertaining to key regulatory environments and utility markets for advanced batteries in detail.
The comprehensive report discusses key battery makers, utilities and service providers concentrating on advanced batteries for use in utility-scale applications in detail. The report is useful to advanced battery makers and component suppliers, energy storage technology integrators and vendors, energy storage providers, utilities, investor community and government agencies.
