Global Grid Scale Energy Storage Market 2016-2020

A grid-scale energy storage system stores power when there is excess and releases energy when there is demand such as during power outage. The increased use of intermittent renewable energy sources has resulted in the use of energy storage systems. Electricity storage primarily fills the gap between the ramping down/ ramping up time of wind/ solar powered energy generation systems. The energy storage systems provide operational support to ensure a smooth, uninterrupted flow of electricity supply. They maintain the power quality and reliability with short response time. In addition, they also smoothen the energy output of renewable sources, which are intermittent in nature. The analyst forecast global grid-scale energy storage market to grow at a CAGR of 34.8% during the period 2016-2020......

Global Power Rental Market 2016-2020

Rental power is used to meet peak load demand, base load supply or as a standby. The need to provide uninterrupted power is a major factor driving the growth of the power rental market; as using power rentals is more economical than maintaining a reserve plant, the demand for rental power has risen over time. The demand for rental power is expected to increase on account of growing public infrastructure construction, the increasing industrial base, and supply of power to remote areas. The oil and gas sector is a major end-user of rental generators and deploys them across the entire value chain; this is because most of the oil refineries and sites are located in remote areas where grid power is inaccessible. The analyst forecast global power rental market to grow at a CAGR of 4.92% durin......
