Energy storage has become increasingly important, from managing unpredictable renewable energy outputs to powering electric vehicles.
From the small batteries that power pacemakers to Tesla’s 100MW mega-battery in South Australia, energy storage varies widely in shape, size, and application.
Since 2012, total funding to energy storage companies has grown every year. This trend has continued into 2018 — companies in this industry have already (as of 7/27) received more money than in any year prior, raising $1.3B across 36 rounds.
We used CB Insights data to map out 35+ notable startups that are active in the industry, from conventional lithium-ion batteries to software that manages energy storage. We also dive into emerging themes in the battery space, including renewable energy storage and the continued popularity of conventional batteries.
