We present a method to find the maximum magnitude of any supply-shortfall service that an aggregator of energy storage devices is able to sell to a grid operator. This is first demonstrated in deterministic settings, then applied to scenarios in which device availabilities are stochastic. In this case we implement chance constraints on the inability to deliver as promised. We show a significant computational improvement in using our method in place of straightforward scenario simulation. As an
