  Energy Storage for Ancillary Services Will Surpass $3.8 Billion in Annual
  Revenue by 2023, Forecasts Navigant Research

BOULDER, Colo. -- June 14, 2013

Ancillary services, such as frequency regulation and voltage support, are
required to maintain safe, reliable, and secure transmission of electricity on
the grid. As the technical need for ancillary services grows over the next 10
years, the corresponding demand for energy storage systems (ESSs) that support
these services will grow as well. According to a recent report from Navigant
Research, worldwide revenue from ESSs for ancillary services will increase
from less than $590 million in 2013 to more than $3.8 billion in 2023.

“With the integration of intermittent, distributed, renewable sources of
power, the technical challenges of generating, transmitting, and distributing
electricity are increasing,” says Anissa Dehamna, senior research analyst with
Navigant Research. “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.”

Mechanical technologies, such as pumped hydro, compressed air, and flywheels,
continue to dominate the market for ESSs. However, the emergence of advanced
battery chemistries, such as lithium carbonate, lithium titanate, and advanced
lead-acid, promises to open a new era of innovation in energy storage
technology, according to the report.

The report, “Energy Storage Systems for Ancillary Services”, analyzes the
global market for energy storage to provide ancillary services. The report
provides a comprehensive assessment of the demand drivers and technology
issues associated with the ancillary services market. Key industry players are
profiled in depth and worldwide revenue and capacity forecasts, segmented by
technology and region, extend through 2023. An Executive Summary of the report
