One of the primary drivers of ancillary services in the US power sector is the ongoing integration of renewable energy sources into the grid. The shift to cleaner and more sustainable energy sources, such as wind and solar power, has added variability and intermittency to the system. Ancillary services play an important role in addressing the challenges that come with these fluctuations. As renewable energy's share of the overall energy mix grows, so does the demand for fast-response ancillary services. Balancing services, such as frequency regulation and load following, are critical to ensuring grid stability. Furthermore, the incorporation of energy storage systems, a critical component of ancillary services, helps to mitigate the intermittent nature of renewable sources by storing excess energy during periods of high generation and releasing it when demand is high or renewable generation is low. This driver reflects the overall national goal of transitioning to a cleaner energy future. Policymakers and grid operators recognize the value of ancillary services in facilitating the reliable and secure integration of renewable energy, resulting in a sustainable and resilient power system in the United States.
The rapid pace of technological advancement creates the challenge of obsolescence. Ancillary service providers must constantly update their systems to include the most recent innovations, ensuring that they remain effective and compliant with changing grid requirements. To address the technological integration challenge, industry stakeholders, policymakers, and research institutions must work together to develop common standards and promote a technologically adaptive power sector.
- In 2023, the frequency controlled ancillary services segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.
Based on the service type, the United States power ancillary service market is segmented into frequency controlled ancillary services, network controlled ancillary services and others. Among these, the frequency controlled ancillary services segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. FCAS is an important segment of ancillary services, with the primary goal of keeping the power system's frequency within acceptable limits. With the growing integration of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar, which can introduce variability into the grid, frequency control has become increasingly important. FCAS helps to stabilize the grid by maintaining a balance of electricity supply and demand.
- In 2023, the frequency regulation segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.
Based on the application, the United States power ancillary service market is segmented into frequency regulation, voltage compensation, renewable integration, operational management and others. Among these, the frequency regulation segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. Electric motors play an important role in frequency regulation in the power system. They can be used as part of demand response programs or grid stabilization plans. Motors can be programmed to consume more power or act as generators based on the grid's frequency requirements, thereby promoting grid stability. Frequency regulation is critical for the stability of the electric grid. To avoid disruptions, the grid must balance electricity supply and demand. Electric motors, particularly those used in industrial processes, can be programmed to provide or absorb power in response to frequency fluctuations, thereby helping to stabilize the grid.
