Over the last century, the energy storage industry has evolved and adapted to changing energy requirements and advances in technology. Researchers recently predicted new energy generating capacity will be installed over the next five to ten years and will therefore require unprecedented amount of energy storage. As of today, the broad energy storage technology base includes electro-chemical capacitors/batteries, CAES & flywheels, pumped thermal (PTES), pumped hydroelectric (PHES) energy storage, etc. A key challenge for such companies will be scale up manufacturing for full-scale grid storage.
A yet2 client is looking to identify emerging or improved energy storage technology platforms and companies in order to understand all strategies currently deployed or in development. Technologies or companies in later stage development or at small-scale deployment are of greatest interest. A pathway to scale-up is ideal.
