"Despite policy challenges and the fact that almost all U.S. utility storage projects are in the pilot phase, the pace of new renewable generation coming online demands a way to integrate variable power sources," noted Jim Hight, senior editor for EBI's Climate Change Business Journal.

"Although other technologies can and do perform the balancing functions required by increased use of wind and solar, it's clear there is growing interest in energy storage among utilities. Those inside the energy storage industry expect to see annual billion dollar markets in new utility projects in the near future."

Renewable Energy Drives the Storage Market
The leading driver for the energy storage business is the need to integrate more variable energy resources such as wind and solar power into the grid. However, storage technology can also be used for ancillary functions, such as frequency regulation and to avoid or defer investments in upgrading the capacity of transmission and distribution lines and substations.
