Energy Storage Research Service

About the service

Distributed energy storage is establishing itself in many markets – in homes, businesses and in front of the meter. More value streams are opening up, electricity systems are decentralising, and technology costs continue to fall. The market today is growing fast, but from a small base. Different companies are adopting different positions and approaches to the market, with a variety of business models emerging. Identifying, understanding and acting on the best opportunities is critical to securing a slice of the fast-growing distributed energy storage market.

Our Energy Storage Research Service provides data, analysis and opinion that enable you to evolve the right approach to distributed energy storage and to identify, understand and act on opportunities.

Silvestros Vlachopoulos, Energy Storage Research Service Manager

“Distributed energy storage has rapidly emerged as a technology that can deliver value to customers and the electricity system alike. But this value is not always straightforward to realise. 

Many customers still do not understand their energy use, or how a complex asset like energy storage can benefit them. Likewise, energy regulators and system operators in Europe and around the world are still learning how energy storage can enable the energy transition. 

Energy companies, storage providers and asset operators are already taking a range of different routes to navigate these complexities and deliver a successful storage proposition.”
