北美，歐洲，亞太地區的公共事業經營者，成為大規模的公共事業規模的存儲系統和小規模的分散式存儲系統兩者的主要使用者，從2014年到2015年，全球公共事業經營者在同期間佔引進的系統整體約23％，約導入124.3MW的貯存容量。現在，公共事業經營者所有的能源儲存系統 (ESS) 佔著球ESS管線的27％，至2020年，預計新導入約9,000 MW。
Cost-effective advanced energy storage technologies are providing utilities and grid operators with new tools to improve system reliability and lower costs. However, these systems also present risks as relatively new technologies are integrated into existing networks. Given the complexity surrounding energy storage, utilities around the world are exploring different approaches to working with the related technologies.
Utilities in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific have emerged as the top consumers of energy storage for both large, utility-scale storage systems and smaller, distributed storage systems. In 2014 and 2015, utilities worldwide deployed roughly 124.3 MW of energy storage capacity, accounting for about 23% of all systems deployed during that time period. Currently, utility-owned energy storage systems (ESSs) account for 27% of the global ESS pipeline. Nearly 9,000 MW of new utility-owned energy storage capacity is expected to be deployed by 2020. As a result of their buying power, brand recognition, and ability to drive regulatory change, utilities represent one of the most important drivers for enabling energy storage to truly scale globally.
This Navigant Research report provides an overview of issues facing utilities as they seek to integrate energy storage and the approaches being taken. The study examines the major approaches utilities are using with energy storage, including the investment, virtual power plant (VPP), and product strategies. Specific attention is given to the risks associated with each strategy being explored by utilities. Examples from around the world detail the various approaches being employed to work with the dynamic and valuable new technologies associated with energy storage.
