Energy Storage Systems – Worldwide Joint Market and Technology Study on Technological Key Enablers

6 September 2017 Allgemein, News AZL Admin

AZL Aachen GmbH, in cooperation with RWTH Aachen University and CONBILITY® GmbH, launch an international Joint Market and Technology Study which provides a detailed market insight in technologies and the variety of energy storage systems. The BVES Bundesverband Energiespeicher e.V. (German Energy Storage Association) supports the targets of the study. Companies seeking new business opportunities in the field of energy storage systems are invited to join.

The Joint Market and Technology Study on “Energy Storage Systems” is motivated by the strong market growth which is apparent for energy storage systems, which are key technologies for establishing intelligent networks on the basis of renewable resources. The systems enable a reliable access to electrical energy for humans in developing countries. The market volume in Germany is expected to grow from about 2.5 billion euro in 2011 to approximately 14 billion euro in 2025 (Source:, 2015).

The study focuses on the technological analysis of established, emerging and still developing systems and technologies and will therefore offer a broad decision basis for the business development of companies. It will start with a detailed market segmentation including an assessment of the economic and technological potential, the technology readiness level as well as important key players. All the important technologies in the field of energy storage, chemical energy storage as well as thermal energy storage are considered.

Urban Windelen, federal chairman of the BVES: “Representing the interests of companies from the sector and as a political adviser, our most important targets are reducing barriers and supporting fast growth of energy storage systems. We are expecting important impulses for our members from this study and in particular an impact on the market entry of companies providing important key technologies without utilizing them for the dynamically growing market of energy storage systems.”

The results will be relevant for suppliers of materials, of processing technologies as well as of systems and machinery who want to evaluate the potential of their products, their production technologies as well as their know-how in the field of energy storage systems.

Study participants will be a direct part of the study and will be able to influence the progress according to their specific demands, and exchange and network with other industrial project participants from different branches and market sectors as well as with external experts.

The study will be kicked-off in November 2017 with a duration of eight months. Interested companies can join before the kick-off Meeting in November.
