European Market Monitor on Energy Storage

EMMES 4.0 – March 2020

EASE and Delta-ee are pleased to announce the publication of the fourth edition of the European Market Monitor on Energy Storage (EMMES).

EMMES 4.0 shows that:

  • The European energy storage market contracted in 2019 to 1 GWh, with a cumulative installed base of 3.4 GWh across all segments.
  • In 2019 saturated FCR markets in the UK and Germany slowed growth in the Front of Meter segment. We expect a rebound in 2020 as the demand for system flexibility rises and value streams open.
  • The residential segment continues to grow steadily, driven by growth in Germany that accounted for 76% of the annual market in 2019.
  • The C&I segment saw a small contraction in the leading markets (Germany and the UK) in 2019. Regulatory uncertainty and long payback periods are hindering growth.
  • However, the future of energy storage in 2020 in Europe remains positive as the energy transition progresses.
  • Regulators and grid operators are increasingly recognising the value that storage adds to electricity systems. Consumers in both the residential and C&I segments show growing interest in storage as technology costs fall and Feed in Tariffs are phased out. And the storage industry continues to innovate around products and propositions.
  • The EU’s Clean Energy Package is already opening doors for storage, and this process will only accelerate over the coming years as regulations stabilise.

EMMES 3.0 – March 2019

EASE and Delta-ee are pleased to announce the publication of the third edition of the European Market Monitor on Energy Storage (EMMES).

EMMES 3.0 shows that:

  • Market growth in 2018 exceeded expectations, and was higher than both 2016 and 2017
  • A key factor in this rapid market growth during 2018 was the commissioning of new front-of-the meter projects in the UK
  • Behind-the-meter markets continue to develop positively across Europe, with growing opportunities for energy storage in C&I and residential applications in Central & Eastern Europe, Spain and the Nordics.
  • Political negotiations on the “Clean Energy for All Europeans” package (CEP) were concluded in December 2018, and the new electricity market design should be enacted into Member States national legislation over the next 18 months. This promises to deliver important changes that could have a significant and positive impact on the energy storage market in Europe.
  • While the market is forecast to grow in 2019 and 2020, it will do so at a lower rate due to the short-term saturation of some front-of-the-meter markets, and the maturing of the large German residential market.
  • However, new growth drivers will emerge as the CEP is enacted and we expect E-mobility to become a significant new application for stationary energy storage.

EMMES 2.0 – June 2018

EASE and Delta-ee are pleased to announce the publication of the second edition of the European Market Monitor on Energy Storage (EMMES).

EMMES 2.0 shows that:

  • The electrical energy storage capacity annually installed grew by 49% between 2016 and 2017 in Europe, which is a steady growth rate since 2015.In 2018it is expected to grow at a similar rate (45%) with the level of new installations accelerating
  • The total installed base in Europe (excluding pumped hydro) reached 1.6 GWh at end of 2017
  • Germany and UK remain the most important markets for grid scale projects
  • Italy is emerging as a rapidly growing market for residential electrical energy storage but Germany remains a clear leader.
