In the future, the market value of the US energy storage mar

The great progress of battery energy storage technology and the continuous low cost of wind and solar energy are subverting the entire power industry.


The town of Stirling, Massachusetts, in the United States, has a population of only eight thousand, but because of its high storage capacity and power generation capacity of 2 megawatts, Stirling has become the leader of the world's per capita energy storage, and its electric power development also shows the future of the global power industry.


Today, high-energy storage has penetrated into the home appliances and automobile industries of the United States and expanded rapidly through the national grid of the United States, so that small towns like Stirling have no power to cut off and even avoid peak hours.


Last year, the United States amplified 500 megawatts of electricity, equivalent to 250 Stirling towns. In the next eight years, the United States plans to add more than 35000 megawatts of electricity, equivalent to 17500 Stirling towns, which will save about $4 billion a year for the United States operating costs, according to the American energy reserve Association. Stephen Bouayad, a Morgan Stanley public utility analyst, believes the market value of the US storage market is at least $20 billion in the future, and is expected to even exceed $35 billion.


Still in Stirling, for example, it owns power plants, instead of relying on foreign investment to generate electricity, as well as many small towns in Massachusetts, and it has also introduced solar power earlier. But solar energy, like wind energy, has a time point problem, so it does not provide consumers with convenient and affordable electricity as the battery does. However, with the reduction of the cost of wind and solar power in recent years, some power plants are keen to use these renewable energy sources to generate electricity. Last year, an analysis by Lazard investment consulting showed that wind power plants made profits for the first time. The reason was that many power industry investors began to combine wind, solar and high-energy batteries to improve wind or solar power and reduce the cost of electricity.


It is estimated that the new business models appear, or reduce the cost of generating electricity from 10% to 25%. Of course, wind and solar power plants are not large in the power industry in the United States, but the US Energy Agency is optimistic about its development prospects and predicts that by 2050, the power generation of renewable energy, which is dominated by wind and solar energy, will increase by 139%, and the natural gas power generation is also growing, but the coal and electricity will show a moderate decline.


As to whether the high energy storage battery can play a decisive role in generating renewable energy, such as wind energy and solar energy, there are still disputes, but there is no doubt that the three will be developed rapidly in the future. Therefore, market analysts are generally optimistic about Panasonic and other listed companies that provide high energy storage batteries. At the same time, Bouayad believes that power companies with high energy storage batteries, wind and solar energy will have more opportunities to develop in the future because of the huge potential for wind power development in the Midwest.


For example, the US electric power company, covering eleven states in the United States, provides power services for more than 5 million users. In the past decade, the company has cut coal and electricity from 70% in 2005 to 47% last year, and plans to further reduce the proportion of coal and electricity and improve wind and solar power. Again, like ESP, which used to be keen on nuclear power generation, now because of the high cost of nuclear energy, it began to try the development model of the combination of the high energy storage battery with the wind energy and the solar energy. The transformation of esen in the power industry is quite representative, and it is also the real expression of the change in the power industry in the enterprise.
