In 2018, the global energy storage battery market size was valued at USD 3.19 billion and is predicted to reach USD 7.99 billion by 2025, accounting a CAGR of 9.0% during the forecast period. This means a significant amount of power from renewable sources will be injected into emerging markets' electricity mix in the near future, raising operational issues especially for electricity distribution companies (discoms). While the cost of renewables has fallen significantly in the past few years, a major issue with renewables such as solar and wind energy is its intermittency in nature. Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) can help smoothen the renewable energy (RE) profile.
