    Global storage heading to 741 GWh by 2030, WoodMac projects, amid ongoing challenges

    Global energy storage capacity could amount to 741 GWh by the end of the decade, representing a 31% compound annual growth rate, analysis from Wood Mackenzie has found — and the U.S. could make up nearly half of that. The average cost of lithium-ion battery cells is expected to drop during that timeframe, according to IHS Markit, falling below $100 per kWh in the next three years and potentially dipping to as low as $73 per kWh by the end of the decade.
