Julian Jansen, Mike Longson | September 09, 2019
Key policy announcements in August: Residential subsidies were launched Bavaria (Germany), London (United Kingdom), Oregon (United States) and the Australian Capital Territory. Residential energy storage comes into focus as policy makers launch new subsidy schemes As the residential market continues to grow from annual installations of 1.8 GW in 2019 to 6 GW in 2025. Subsidy schemes have been important progressing uptake in new markets. The largest global markets – Japan and Germany – incentivised residential energy storage early on building on the high installed base of domestic rooftop solar. Australia has seen strong support from regional governments particularly in New South Wales and South Australia. These subsidies and favourable economics are leading to rapid market growth, with system shipments having reached 88% of the total 2018 shipments in the first half of 2019 based on data from the IHS Markit Residential Energy Storage Index.

After the government-led investigation into battery energy storage system fires in South Korea concluded in June 2019, the operation of systems resumed under new safety parameters and with a view to develop stricter installations and operation standards. While the industry expected demand to re-emerge in the South Korean market, the latest fire casts fresh uncertainty and highlights the depth of safety problems.
