Global energy storage capacity totaled 184.4 GW in 2020, an increase of 4.3% compared to the previous year. Pumped hydro energy storage (PHS) comprised the largest portion of global capacity at 162.6 GW. Electrochemical energy storage followed with a total capacity of 15.8 GW. Within the electrochemical category, lithium-ion batteries accounted for 13.1 GW in 2020, or nearly 83% of the category total. Battery storage surpassed 10 GW for the first time. The potential applications of ESS have piqued the interest of a variety of stakeholders across the value chain, boosting its growth and paving the way for the next stage of the energy transition. ESS installations linked to the electricity grid and ancillary services will grow in the coming years, driven by rising energy demand, asset retirements, and increased integration of renewables.
