Navigant Research Report Shows Asia Pacific, Western Europe, and North America are Expected to Account for Nearly 90% of the Global Energy Storage for EV Charging Market Through 2027

Energy storage for EV charging provides many benefits to the greater EV charging market, including reduced demand charges and improved grid stability

Aug 14, 2018

A new report from Navigant Research examines the global market for the EV charging, providing market forecasts segmented by charger location, charger power level, technology, and region, extending through 2027.

As energy storage beco­­­­­­­mes a key technology for front-of-the-meter and behind-the-meter applications, grid operators, commercial business owners, and homeowners are increasingly looking to storage solutions like energy storage for EV charging (ESEV) to help mitigate electricity reliability and cost issues. Click to tweet: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH, Asia Pacific, Western Europe, and North America are expected to account for nearly 90% of the global energy storage for EV charging market power capacity through 2027.

“Navigant Research believes several different solutions can address the peak demand of EVs and the associated charging issues, including EV charging strategies that contain the impact on the grid and the deployment of smart grid technologies like distributed generation, smart monitoring systems, and especially energy storage,” says Ian McClenny, research analyst for Navigant. “In addition, ESEV systems represent a solution to common problems EV customers face—cost and power supply issues in the form of harmonic currents and poor power factors because of non-linear charging equipment.”

According to the report, energy storage plays a fundamental role to the smart grid and the integration of the new power systems related to future EV charging stations. Navigant Research found the numerous benefits to the greater EV charging market provided by ESEV, including: reduced demand charges to customers, decreased charging times reduction in customer range anxiety, a better business case for EV owners and charging station operators, improvement in grid stability, and reduction in carbon footprint for all parties involved.

This report, Energy Storage for EV Charging, examines the EV charging market, how energy storage can play a vital role, and key technology considerations that will drive this industry forward. The study analyzes the market issues, including market segmentation and the supply chain, associated with energy storage-enabled EV chargers. Global market forecasts, segmented by charger location, charger power level, technology, and region, extend through 2027. The report also examines the architectures related to ESEV, as well as how EV charging companies are teaming up with energy storage developers to learn how to integrate and monetize energy storage systems. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.
