Top 10 BESS Investors in Asia

PF Nexus highlights the Top 10 Energy Storage Investors in Asia

In this article, PF Nexus highlights the Top 10 energy storage investors driving the energy transition in Asia.

Asia aims to triple its renewable energy capacity by 2030, necessitating accelerated investments and developments. Key actions to achieve this goal include cutting subsidies for non-renewable energy resources and increasing investments in renewables. Leading this charge are India, China, and Japan, focusing primarily on solar PV and wind energy.

Energy storage technologies are critical for enabling renewable energy to contribute a larger proportion of a grid’s overall generation capacity. Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) are highly versatile, with applications ranging from short-to-medium-term utility-scale grid support to behind-the-meter commercial and industrial installations. Additionally, technologies such as thermal storage and flow batteries are emerging as viable options for longer-duration storage.

As renewable energy and energy storage technologies advance, their synergies will strengthen. Developers of energy storage projects will play an increasingly vital role in building a resilient, flexible, and sustainable electricity system powered by renewable energy.

Renewable energy projects typically have high upfront capital costs (Capex) but low ongoing operating costs (Opex). Therefore, significant initial investments are required from investors who have the expertise to manage associated risks and maximize long-term returns. These investors are essential for advancing the global transition to clean power by providing the capital needed to develop and scale renewable projects worldwide.

As renewable energy becomes more cost-competitive and government support increases, the pool of investors is expected to grow rapidly. Capital market instruments like green bonds are opening new pathways for investors to fund renewable projects indirectly. By committing capital to renewable energy, investors can enhance portfolio resiliency, generate cash yields, and contribute significantly to climate change mitigation. However, navigating this rapidly evolving landscape requires a tolerance for disruption and a long-term perspective.
