Globally, the market for energy storage systems is expected to reach $100 billion by 2025. But what are some of the key trends, applications, and sub-sectors that contribute to that overall market valuation? With growing demand for stationary systems that can help utilities, public and private entities mitigate intermittency and fill gaps in off- and micro-grid systems power management, trends are developing. Many activities are policy and incentive driven and can vary widely by region. For instance, California and select Eastern U.S. seaboard states are leaders in implementing new stationary initiatives, but for very different reasons. Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFÉ) standards and consumer needs are key mobile storage market drivers, and the most significant opportunity here is for light EVs. This webinar will attempt to answer the question “What’s next for energy storage?”
