Improvements in PCS technology are being driven by leading markets for distributed energy resources
A new report from examines global market forecasts for energy storage power conversion systems (PCS) pricing and annual market size, broken out by segment, component, and region, extending through 2027.
As the global energy storage industry continues to grow and innovate, PCS are emerging as a key technology to facilitate widespread grid integration. This is especially represented in the Asia Pacific region, which is home to the largest and fastest growing markets for energy storage. : According to a new report from , Asia Pacific region is expected to hold 43.2% of the PCS cumulative global market through 2027.
“Although Asia Pacific is expected to control a large global share of the PCS market, North America and Western Europe will also see a high total capacity for new energy storage and large market for PCS revenue,” says Alex Eller, senior research analyst with Navigant. “In addition, a much greater portion of Western Europe’s energy storage capacity is expected to come from distributed systems with higher price points.”
According to the report, leading markets for distributed energy resources (DER) are a large driver of improvements to PCS technology, where regulation is moving to require smart inverters for DER in general. While many PCS are being implemented by companies around the world, several new technological innovations have been introduced to the industry, including smart islanding, backup power, lower costs based on modern materials and designs, and automated backup support.
This Navigant Research report, , explores the market landscape for energy storage PCS and the innovations in technology that will enable the new wave of industry growth. The study provides an analysis of the key market and technology issues and outlines the four segments of the energy storage market: utility-scale, behind-the-meter (BTM) commercial and industrial (C&I), BTM residential, and remote/off-grid. Global market forecasts for PCS pricing and annual market size, broken out by segment, component, and region, extend through 2027. The report also examines the major advances in technology related to energy storage PCSs and inverters, as well as the competitive landscape. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the .
