Ancillary Services to Power Energy Storage Growth

The energy storage market is expected to receive a boost through the growing need to regulate utility frequency, provide voltage support, and generally maintain a dependable, safe and efficient delivery of power. Ancillary services can help an electrical grid in all those aspects, which translates to a concurrent rise in demand for the energy storage systems that reinforce those ancillary services.

Navigant Research forecasts that the market revenue for energy storage systems in the ancillary services sector will balloon to $3.8 billion in a decade, up from less than $590 million today. Anissa Dehamna, speaking as a senior research analyst at Navigant, thinks that “the integration of intermittent, distributed, renewable sources of power, the technical challenges of generating, transmitting, and distributing electricity … along with the growing volatility of load and generation, moves toward deregulation in high economic growth markets, such as Asia Pacific, are highlighting the value of ESSs for ancillary services.”
