Global grid connected battery energy storage market is expected to exhibit CAGR of 20.0% in the forecast period, according to a new market research report, Global Grid Connected Battery Energy Storage Market, By Battery Type (Lithium Ion Battery, Lead Acid Battery, and Others), By End Users (Residential, Industrial, Utilities, and Others) and by Geography. Increasing demand for grid connected solutions is one of the major driving factors for growth of the market. The integration of grid connected system with renewable energy permits to provide the power/electricity to building, houses etc. For instance, in 2016, the Government of India announced that, Indian government and the World Bank singed a US$ 625 million credit agreement, which is expected to help Indian government to generate an electricity from widespread installation of rooftop solar photo voltaic. The project financed installation of 400 MW of grid connected rooftop solar photovoltaic in India. Hence, this increasing installation of solar photo voltaic provides clean, renewable energy, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by displacing thermal generation.
