Energy storage has become a key enabling technology for front-of-the-meter and behind-the-meter applications. Grid operators, commercial business owners, and homeowners are increasingly looking to storage to help mitigate electricity reliability and cost issues. EVs and their charging systems represent one of the problems that many customers face. EV charging introduces power supply issues in the form of harmonic currents and poor power factors because of non-linear charging equipment. These issues affect the quality of power being supplied to the EV battery, thus reducing its useable life.
Since EV chargers are an electric load that can potentially create large spikes in demand, EV charging station hosts are pressured to do something about their impact on the grid. Several different solutions will address the peak demand of EVs and the associated charging issues. One solution is to implement EV charging strategies that contain the impact on the grid, thereby guaranteeing the quality of the service. The implementation of a charging strategy is related to the deployment of smart grid technologies-especially energy storage. Energy storage plays a fundamental role in the integration of the new power systems related to EV charging stations. Energy storage for EV charging (ESEVC) provides many benefits to the greater EV charging market, including reduced demand charges and improved grid stability.
This Navigant Research report examines the EV charging market, how energy storage can play a vital role, and key technology considerations that will drive this industry forward. The study analyzes the market issues, including market segmentation and the supply chain, associated with energy storage-enabled EV chargers. Global market forecasts, segmented by charger location, charger power level, technology, and region, extend through 2027. The report also examines the architectures related to ESEVC, as well as how EV charging companies are teaming up with energy storage developers to learn how to integrate and monetize energy storage systems.
