IRENA: Battery storage capacity tipped to grow 17-fold by 2030 as costs plummet

A report last week by the Agency estimates development costs associated with stationary battery storage applications could plunge 66 per cent by 2030, potentially helping to push installed global battery storage capacity from just 2GW today to around 175GW - a level that would see it rival global pumped hydro storage capacity.
