The global energy storage as a service market size was valued at US$ 59.89 billion in 2021 and it is expected to hit over US$ 128.84 billion by 2030 with a registered CAGR of 8.9% from 2022 to 2030.
As energy storage becomes a more important part of the modern grid, a variety of economic models are becoming accessible. The energy storage as a service is gaining popularity among service providers in particular. Energy and sustainability managers in corporate commercial and industrial organizations are increasingly looking for cost effective, tailored, and comprehensive energy solutions that ensure energy consumption reduction and cost savings without affecting day to day operations.
The energy storage as a service is a fee for service or management approach for deploying advanced energy storage and energy management systems rather than a direct purchase of the asset by the end user. The concept of energy storage as a service is being used in other places to deliver consistent returns for investors after a distributed energy storage system project is completed. The energy storage as a service is a promising concept that has the ability to attract financing and further grow the industry, as energy storage transactions were previously avoided by investors due to the complexity of cash flow.
The energy storage as a service generally benefits large energy consumers with average consumption of above 500 kW, although depending on regional incentives, the energy storage as a service may also benefit smaller facilities. Electrical, chemical, metal, lighting, petrochemical, plastics manufacturers, resources such as oil, pulp and paper, metals and ore extraction, and food processing are all early adopters of energy storage as a service.

The majority of energy storage as a service during off peak hours, when energy is generated from non-carbon emitting sources. During peak hours, the energy is then used to offset the required carbon emitting manufacturing. The load shifting capabilities provided by energy storage as a service replaces the need for high emitting generation. The energy storage as a service is a contracted service that is managed by a third party automatically. This relieves a facility’s duty for allocating resources to control its energy profile, allowing it to focus on its primary activity. The system operators are familiar with local electricity markets and are constantly monitoring and updating system protocols as regional markets change. The data is used to maximize the energy storage as a service system’s value while still adhering to facility restrictions.
Due to the fact that peak demands vary depending on the time of day and season, energy storage devices are likely to become a critical component of power management systems. For building owners, energy storage as a service ensures a reduction in the most expensive hours of electric consumption, cutting electricity bills at no cost. The energy storage as a service market is driven by this. The global energy storage as a service market is being driven by increased interest in renewable energy generation and significant investments. Major economies throughout the world are putting a lot of effort into improving power generation utilizing renewable energy sources in order to lessen their reliance on fossil fuel-based power generation. Renewable energy now accounts for a significant portion of global energy output.
The growing investments in energy distribution infrastructure will surge the demand for distributed energy resources, propelling the energy storage as a service market. As a result, demand for energy storage as a service is projected to be driven by the growing requirement for distribution systems and major investment to improve grid efficiency.
In 2021, the customer energy management services segment accounted revenue share of 31%. In comparison to utility and energy supply firms, the energy storage as a service model is gaining favor in the industrial, commercial, and residential sectors. The microgrid systems make use of it.
The ancillary services segment is predicted to develop at the quickest rate 11.8% in the future years. Ancillary services including as black start, voltage support, and frequency management are projected to reduce reliance on fossil fuel generators and shift to renewable and battery energy storage.
