Energy storage enables people and communities to get electricity when they need it most—like during outages or when the sun isn’t shining—just as refrigerators allowed food to be stored for days or weeks so it didn’t have to be consumed immediately or thrown away. Storage can lower the demand for electricity from unreliable, environmentally damaging facilities, which are frequently found in underprivileged and disadvantaged areas.
Storage can also help level out demand, protecting electricity users from price increases. In the intricate mechanism that is the electricity grid, power supply and demand must always be equal.
From regular human activity patterns to unexpected shifts like equipment overloads, wildfires, hurricanes, and other extreme weather events, supply has historically been modified to meet fluctuations in demand. Now, from how we heat and cool our houses to when we charge electric vehicles, we now turn to flexibility in electricity demand to help maximize the usage of renewables.
Energy storage is crucial to this juggling act and aids in building a more adaptable and stable grid. For instance, excess energy generation can be utilized to charge storage devices when there is an excess supply compared to demand, such as at night when electricity is reliably provided by constantly operating power plants or in the middle of the day when the sun is shining brightest.
Storage facilities, including those found in people’s homes, can release their stored energy to the grid when demand exceeds supply. For decades, excess electricity from the grid has been stored by pumping water back behind hydroelectric dams, and when electricity is needed later, it is generated by releasing the water to power a turbine. Large battery banks made of lithium-ion batteries are now a more typical form of lithium-ion battery storage in homes, communities, and on a utility-scale.
The Turkey Energy Storage Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
