[Research Report] The lithium-ion battery energy storage market was valued at US$ 7,972.80 million in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 26,224.37 million by 2028; it is estimated to register a CAGR of 13.9% from 2023 to 2028.

The power grid energy storage system is essential in balancing power generation and utilization in the electrical energy transformation process. Among various battery technologies, lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) provide high energy efficiency, long cycle life, and relatively high energy density.  Renewable energy sources are susceptible to geological, seasonal, and temporal conditions. The abundance and wide distribution of renewable sources have become one of the most cost-effective choices for power generation in power grids in many regions. LI BESS devices can be easily incorporated into residential, commercial, and industrial-scale solar and wind energy generating techniques to ensure peak power use supply.

Moreover, Laurel Mountain's company installed a LIB energy storage system with 32 MW/8 MWh power to support the 98 MW wind generation plant in New York in 2011. The largest European LIB energy storage pilot is in process in the UK. It will deploy a LIB system with 6 MW/10 MWh power at the primary substation, which can effectively balance the intermittency of wind and other renewable energy sources. Such developments would have a positive impact in the overall lithium-ion battery energy storage market growth.
