Energy Storage Market Overview

Energy Storage plays a very important role in storing renewable energy. These are modular blocks used to store energy produced by any renewable source and release it when required. With the rise in the numbers of renewable power setups, the Energy Storage Market Growth is expected to happen steadily.

  • October 2022- Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) and JERA Co., Inc. have announced the construction and launch of the world’s first large-capacity Sweep Energy Storage System. The system was developed with batteries reclaimed from electrified vehicles and is connected to the consumer electrical power grid. It starts operations today. Over the coming years, demand for storage batteries is anticipated to rise as they become mandatory supply-stabilizing tools when growing renewable energy in the movement toward CO2 emissions reduction, a crucial aspect of attaining carbon neutrality. Meanwhile, limited supplies of battery materials, including lithium and cobalt, imply a current requirement for environmentally conscious initiatives, such as repossessing used electrified vehicle batteries for efficient usage as storage batteries. As an answer, both companies started discussions in 2018 to found battery reuse technologies that ultimately caused large-capacity, grid-connected Sweep Energy Storage Systems. Toyota’s latest storage system is outfitted with a function called a sweep, enabling the usage of reclaimed vehicle batteries that have substantial differences in capacity and performance to their total capacity irrespective of their level of deterioration. The sweep function, built by Toyota Central R&D Labs, Inc., is a device capable of freely controlling energy discharge by switching electricity flow on and off (bypassing) using series-connected batteries in microseconds.
