Hydrogen Energy Storage Market Outlook – 2027

The global hydrogen energy storage market size was valued at $15.4 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $25.4 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2020 to 2027. Hydrogen energy storage, a type of chemical energy storage, is used to store electric power in the form of hydrogen. Hydrogen is produced through electrolysis of water and the gas is stored in medium or large sized containers according to the requirements. The gas can be converted into energy in combustion engine or in fuel cell. Usually, hydrogen energy is stored in three form; liquid, solid, and gaseous form. To store hydrogen in gas form, it requires high high-pressure tanks, whereas it can be stored in liquid form only under cryogenic temperature. Hydrogen storage is widely used in fuel cell technologies for stationary power and transport applications.

Growth in demand for hydrogen energy storage, utilizing excess electric energy, is expected to drive the market growth. Increase in application of hydrogen storage as a replacement of fossil fuel in different end users is expected to fuel the market growth. For example, in July 2018, Enbridge Gas Distribution, a distributor of natural gas in Canada and Hydrogenics opened power-to-gas facility using the Markham hydrogen energy storage facility in Ontario, Canada. Furthermore, growing prominence of sustainable energy services will propel the market growth. Hydrogen energy can be used for grid energy services and for transportation sectors. As governments across the globe are focusing more on sustainable power sources, the market is expected to witness steady growth in forecast timeframe.  However, hydrogen energy used in fuel cell is very low to cover the energy demand of commercial and residential buildings. In addition, liquid hydrogen energy storage involves high capital cost, owing to high insulation cost to prevent vaporization. Nonetheless, incentive schemes from government and robust investment from industry players may slowly improve the market growth. For instance, in June 2019, Energy Storage Association, the US national trade association for energy storage, brought energy storage tax incentive and deployment act. According to this act, all energy storage technologies, including hydrogen storage, will be eligible for tax incentives. Such new development will create further opportunities in the market.

Global Hydrogen Energy Storage Market, By Product Type

Gas type hydrogen energy storage accounted for significant revenue share. This is attributed to low cost of energy storage for compressed gas compared to that of solid and liquid type. As the quantity of hydrogen storage increases, for gas type, per unit storage cost decreases, whereas, for solid type, it remains same. For instance, according to the United States Department of Energy, at hydrogen flow of 10 kg/hr, the storage costs for gas and solid type are $0.9/KG and $2.1/KG, respectively. However, at hydrogen flow of 10,000 kg/hr, the storage cost for gas and solid type are $0.25/KG and $2.1/KG, respectively.
