Overview of the Molten Salt Thermal Energy Storage Market
Molten salt as an energy storage medium doesn’t currently enjoy large-scale acceptance, but will progressively gain in popularity over the next few years. As a result of this, the demand for molten salt thermal energy storage will begin to see an uptick toward the end of the current decade. The expansion of the molten salt thermal energy storage market is also directly proportional to the growth of the solar energy industry.
It is projected that the global market for molten salt thermal energy storage will log an unprecedented 24.7% CAGR from 2015 through 2023. For the most part, growth in this market will result from fresh investments in renewable energy storage based on molten salt. Europe was, by far, the most lucrative region in the global molten salt thermal energy storage market, with Spain taking the lead. The country has at least 22 concentrated solar power projects with a collective capacity of 15 GW. Of these, projects that are currently under construction carry a combined capacity of 1,037 MW. The United Kingdom, too, has been at the forefront of investments and innovation in molten salt thermal energy storage, backed by a government that’s focused on meeting its green energy goals. European countries are currently governed by the EU Climate Action Plan and are strong target markets for companies offering thermal energy storage using molten salt.
However, the market will find itself faced against growth hurdles in the form of the high upfront cost of investments in such storage facilities and the lack of efficient grid interconnection. The adverse impacts of these challenges can be eased by concentrating on the emerging application area of latent heat storage.
