Energy Storage Systems for Solar and Wind Power Integration Will Total Nearly 22 Gigawatts of Installed Capacity from 2013 to 2023, Forecasts Navigant Research

BOULDER, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–More than 1,300 gigawatts (GW) of wind and solar power generation capacity are expected to come online in the next 10 years, creating an unprecedented amount of instability on the grid—particularly in key markets within North America, Western Europe, and Asia Pacific. As grid operators adapt to increasing levels of variable generation on their systems, energy storage systems (ESSs) will become an integral element of their overall strategies. According to a new report from Navigant Research, the installed capacity of energy storage systems for solar and wind power integration will total 21.8 GW from 2013 to 2023.
