    lux research on energy storage

    This standardized approach is in staunch contrast with the battery developers in other sectors. Utility customers do not know the best way to utilize an energy storage system, since the technology can theoretically address a long list of utility applications. As a result, utilities are uncertain on the best configuration, geographic layout, or size of energy storage systems, requiring battery suppliers to develop costly customized systems that are not optimized for performance in any application. While this customized trial-and-error approach is essential for cultivating the utility storage market, it can prove very costly and time consuming for the technology developer.

    Therefore, players plotting their entrance in the stationary energy storage market need to consider their preferred course of action; develop standardized products for volume, or develop customized systems in order to encourage and develop. While no market segment will be easy to penetrate, there is greater obscurity around utility customers, while there is greater clarity around footprint, capacity and performance profile amongst telecom, industrial, and commercial customers.
