A new report from Navigant
analyzes the global and regional drivers behind increased
residential energy storage system (RESS) deployments, providing capacity
and revenue forecasts, broken out by region and battery technology,
through 2028.

Utility involvement, cost declines, government incentives, and increased
solar PV integration are driving increased RESS deployments. Over the
coming years, the demand for RESSs will be highly concentrated in select
markets before spreading to other areas. Click

: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH,
in 2019, Australia, Germany, Japan, and the US are expected to account
for 71% of the global RESS market.

“RESSs can be a highly flexible and valuable resource, improving
efficiencies for system owners and the power grid,” says Ricardo
Rodriguez, research analyst with Navigant Research. “While a handful of
markets will lead the way for neighboring countries in their regions,
overall, Asia Pacific, Western Europe, and North America are forecast to
account for the majority (99%) of the global RESS market from 2019 to

The market for residential battery storage has been driven primarily by
early adopters concerned with the environment or self-sufficiency more
than economic self-interest. According to the report, many utilities see
RESSs as an avenue to improve their services and relationships with
customers at a time when new technologies are presenting a real risk of
load defection. In recognizing these benefits, particularly the ability
to reduce congestion on the network and limit the need for peak capacity
resources, utilities around the world have launched programs to deploy

The report, Residential
Energy Storage
, analyzes global and regional drivers behind
increased RESS deployments. The study examines utility involvement, cost
declines, government incentives, and increased solar PV integration, as
well as barriers to deployment. Capacity and revenue forecasts, broken
out by region and battery technology, extend through 2028. The report
also discusses emerging market participation models that enable
continued RESS growth around the world. An Executive Summary of the
