LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Falling oil prices may mean temporarily lower fossil fuel costs, but First Titan Corp. (OTCBB: FTTN) continues to eye opportunities in renewable energy and the energy storage industries, particularly after some major players indicated they would invest big money in the segments.
General Electric Co. recently said it expects the energy storage market to quadruple in size to $6 billion by 2020 and that it is revamping its battery storage systems accordingly. Meanwhile, AES Advancion Energy Storage Solutions continues to build energy storage facilities – with a total of 260 MWs worth of projects now in the planning or construction stages. Siemens has launched construction of what it bills as the world’s largest hydrogen energy storage plant.
“As these news items indicate, the energy storage industry is attracting major investments and the sector will only grow in size in the coming years,” said FTTN CEO Sydney Jim. “We consider energy storage to be a viable future market for FTTN and we are continually evaluating potential projects we can invest in or participate as a partner. We are committed to taking the company in a positive direction that will lead to increased revenues and enhanced shareholder value.”
Worldwide revenues from energy storage systems are expected to top $21.5 billion by 2024, according to market estimates. While the majority of that revenue is expected to come from large commercial and industrial applications, the market for home energy storage units could become a growing niche segment as one company reports it has now started installing residential systems in California.
