U.S. utilities to increase battery storage capacity by 2025, according to the EIA

As new projects get bigger and the capacity of wind and solar energy grows, U.S. power providers might increase their battery storage capacity in the next three years. As of Thursday, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) said.

By the end of 2025, utility-scale battery storage is expected to grow from 7.8 gigawatts (GW) in October of this year to 30 GW, according to developers and power plant owners.

The capacity of battery storage, which just began to gain traction in the United States in 2020, was projected to reach 9.1 GW by the end of 2022 before tripling to 19 GW in 2023 and reaching 28.4 GW in 2024.

According to the EIA, Texas and California, which have the highest levels of installed wind and solar capacity, respectively, account for more than three-quarters of the anticipated 20.8 GW increases.

Texas is anticipated to house 42.5 GW of wind capacity and 30.9 GW of solar capacity by 2025, accounting for 7.9 GW of all planned battery storage additions.

In the next three years, California, which now has 16.8 GW of solar power and has 7.7 GW of additional solar capacity planned, will build 7.6 GW of battery storage.

Battery storage projects are expanding in size as more battery capacity becomes available to the American grid, according to the EIA.

noting that between 250 MW and 650 MW, more than 23 large-scale battery projects were planned for deployment by 2025.
