Energy storage can absorb surplus renewable generation when energy exceeds demand and releases it when renewable generation output is low. Its purpose is to reduce the imbalances between energy demand and production. Energy storage is anticipated for growth every year in the 2020s, with capacity set to grow by almost a third worldwide year on year reaching 741 gigawatt-hours by 2030.
