    The Newest Energy Storage Numbers

    Lazard’s latest annual Levelized Cost of Storage Analysis (LCOS 3.0), conducted with support from Enovation Partners, shows declining cost trends among commercially deployed technologies such as lithium-ion, but with wide variations depending on the type of application and battery technology.

    November 2, 2017 (Lazard)

    “Among commercially deployed technologies, lithium-ion continues to provide the most economical solution across use cases analyzed in [Lazard’s just-released Levelized Cost of Storage, 3.0], although competing flow battery technologies claim to offer lower costs for certain applications…[U]nder some scenarios, certain applications of energy storage technologies are attractive; these uses relate primarily to strengthening the power grid and accessing cost savings and other sources of value for commercial and industrial energy users through reducing utility bills and/or participating in demand response programs…Industry participants expect costs to decrease significantly over the next five years, driven by scale and related cost savings, improved standardization and technological improvements, supported in turn by increased demand as a result of regulatory/pricing innovation, increased renewables penetration and the needs of an aging and changing power grid in the context of a modern society…[L]ithium-ion capital costs are expected to decline as much as 36% over the next five years…” click here for more
