Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) Market Overview and Introduction                 

Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESSs) is a technology which has been developed for storing energy, using specifically designed batteries. Growing focus on renewable sources of energy, such as wind & solar energy, have led to the adoption of BESSs to store the generated energy. BESSs assist in overcoming the challenges of large-scale grid integration of renewables, by storing excess of energy when demand is low and re-injecting the same, when consumption is at its peak. The advent of BESS has been a major contributor in balancing the supply & demand for power and simultaneously improving operational & performance features of novel battery technologies.

The growth of global BESS market can be attributed to several factors such as broad range of application of BESS across demand response, integration of renewable energy & microgrids, frequency regulation, and distribution & transmission infrastructure deferral among others. Moreover, rising focus on utilizing clean energy has significantly contributed to the adoption of battery energy storage systems, globally. Similarly, increasing demand for lithium-ion batteries by renewable energy industry coupled with decreasing costs of these batteries have been significant in propelling the growth of global Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) Market. However, requirement of high capital investment for deployment of BESS and difficulties while installing BESS in remote locations may hinder the growth of the market to a certain extent.
