Dublin, Oct. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Market Forecast of Global Energy Storage System (Forecasts to 2020)" report to their offering.

ESSs are devices to store electricity across the entire process from power generation to consumption (power plant-power transmission-substation-power distribution-consumer). Pumped storage power plants or UPSs (uninterruptible power supply systems) are the most typical ESSs. The ESS applications market is composed of total 19 areas, including the above.

This report is dedicated to examining when and where demand for ESSs occurs and how big it is.
