Market Overview

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

A new report from Navigant
examines the global market for 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

: 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.
