he New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) announced Jan. 19 that employment in the state’s energy storage sector grew to approximately 3,900, as of the end of 2015. That’s a 30 percent increase from 2012, according to a recently completed report. Annual industry revenue reached an estimated $906 million in 2015, up 50 percent from 2012. The report, entitled “The Energy Storage Industry in New York State: Recent Growth and Projections 2015 Update,” was funded by NYSERDA and issued by Industrial Economics Inc.

NYSERDA said it established the New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology Consortium (NY-BEST) in 2010 to help “position New York State as a global leader in energy storage technology for electric grid, transportation, and other large-scale storage applications, working with industry and academic partners.” The consortium now includes Fortune 500 companies, startups, universities, national research centers, and laboratories from all segments of the energy sector. NYSERDA contends that energy storage will advance the state’s efforts to have 50 percent of its electricity come from renewable sources by 2030, as it can save power generated from solar, wind, and combined heat and power (CHP) systems for later use. Also, when power demand is high, energy storage can keep costs low and keep electricity reliable, enabling buildings to operate during power outages.

29 The growth trends estimated here, based on Navigant Research data, are roughly consistent with those presented by GreenTech Media in a Clean Power Group webinar in August 2016. GreenTech Media data pertained to the U.S. (rather than New York State) electricity storage market and estimated accelerating revenue growth after 2016-2017, similar to the growth trend shown in Exhibit 11. However, the GreenTech Media data expect a greater contribution to total revenues from energy storage on the grid applications (referred to asheavily “utility” applications) relative to Navigant Research; this may be because the GreenTech Media data This year, we are investing in do not reflect sales from the array of commercial energy storage applications shown in Exhibit 11. technology and30 we will be debuting our The remaining electricity storage sub-segments, community energy storage and ice-based commercial energy storage, feature newly revampedrelatively website. new gains. site Community will small The proportional energy storage is projected to increase from one percent of New York State company sales to global electricity storage markets to four percent by 2030; ice-based commercial energy storage sales are enhance the readers’ experience by being projected to increase from four percent to five percent over this period.
