Rapid growth of intermittent renewable power generation makes the identification of investment opportunities in energy storage and the establishment of their
profitability indispensable. Here we first present a conceptual framework to characterize business models of energy storage and systematically differentiate investment opportunities. We then use the framework to examine which storage
technologies can perform the identified business models and review the recent
literature regarding the profitability of individual combinations of business
models and technologies. Our analysis shows that a set of commercially available
technologies can serve all identified business models. We also find that certain
combinations appear to have approached a tipping point toward profitability.
Yet, this conclusion only holds for combinations examined most recently or stacking several business models. Many technologically feasible combinations have
been neglected, indicating a need for further research to provide a detailed
and conclusive understanding about the profitability of energy storage.
