BOULDER, Colo.--A recent Leaderboard Report from Navigant Research examines the strategy and execution of 12 leading energy storage systems integrators (ESSIs), including vendor profiles, ratings, and rankings, with the goal of providing industry participants an objective assessment of these companies' relative strengths and weaknesses in the market.


With battery prices continuing to decrease, increased attention is being given to other areas of the stationary energy storage value chain, including energy storage system (ESS) integration. ESSIs are responsible for ensuring that ESSs meet the needs of the end user, and the scaling of the overall market will depend on how these companies approach the market. Click to tweet: According to a recent Leaderboard Report from Navigant Research, installed energy storage enabling technology revenue is expected to reach $21.5 billion annually by 2024.

"The future market for ESSIs will be led by firms that respond quickly to market demand and provide compelling offers to energy storage end users," says Anissa Dehamna, principal research analyst with Navigant Research. "The most successful firms will be those that allow for competitive pricing options and persuasive value propositions for customers."

An important trend in the market is the rapid pace of innovation in ESS software and controls, according to the report. Many leading ESSIs evaluated by Navigant Research provide customized software platforms that help end users manage the daily operations of an ESS, including, in some cases, virtually modeling a system's operations before a physical installation is deployed.

The report, Navigant Research Leaderboard Report: Energy Storage System Integrators, examines the strategy and execution of 12 leading energy storage systems integrators. These ESSI players are rated on 12 criteria: vision, go-to-market strategy, partners, production strategy, technology, geographic reach, sales, marketing and distribution, product performance, product quality and reliability, product portfolio, pricing, and staying power. Using Navigant Research's proprietary Leaderboard methodology, vendors are profiled, rated, and ranked with the goal of providing industry participants with an objective assessment of these companies' relative strengths and weaknesses in the global ESSI market.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
