See below for our Battery Energy Stationary Storage Capacity Tracker, May 2022. This tracker draws on data from our BESS Monthly Assessment.
The BESS Monthly Assessment provides a monthly update of global BESS developments, both for projects and news from the sector. Click here to request a demo.
Highlights from this month’s assessment:
- Hithium, a leading producer of LFP batteries (ESS focused) and BESS system, announced that the construction of its Phase II LFP battery production project has started in Xiamen. Hithium aims to achieve 100GWh production capacity in the next three years.
- Several announcements were made for sodium-ion batteries. In China, Chilwee and CESC (8th Division) both announced they will enter the sodium-ion business, and in the US, Natron Energy announced a partnership with Clarios to build a sodium ion production facility.
- In May 1.9GWh of new capacity entered operation across 39 locations, of which 30 were in China. YTD installed BESS grid capacity now sits at just under 10GWh, with planned capacity of a further 46GWh.
BESS Capacity Tracker – what does it tell us?
In May 1.9GWh of new capacity entered operation across 39 locations, of which 30 were in China. YTD installed BESS grid capacity now sits at just under 10GWh, with planned capacity of a further 46GWh. 28GWh of this capacity has been confirmed as under construction. In terms of new announcements, over 32GWh of new capacity was added across 110 locations. Several large-scale projects were announced this month, with eight new projects planned over 1GWh.
Why do we track the battery energy stationary storage market?
To understand the market dynamics, key drivers, and technologies our BESS market analysis is an important data tool providing the cathode demand for grid scale and behind the meter BESS based on use case, economic and regional analysis.
These trends have implications along the battery supply chain for battery raw material suppliers, battery manufacturers, utility companies and renewable energy developers, as well as anyone with an interest in the ESS battery supply chain
The monthly assessment provides a regular update of the developments in the BESS market, tracking both key market and technology news and an analysis into the roll-out and development of grid-scale projects and those currently in the pipeline. This enables you to stay up to date and well informed within the competitive and growing BESS market.
Who benefits from understanding battery energy stationary storage market dynamics?
Battery raw material suppliers, battery manufacturers, utility companies, renewable energy developers as well as anyone with an interest in the ESS battery supply chain.
How do we track the battery energy stationary storage market?
The near-term market is tracked via project announcements and progress updates these come from a number of sources including government and provincial bodies, news sites, technology supplier announcements, and planning bodies. The result is our ever-growing database of battery energy storage installation projects worldwide, which covers most projects over 10MWh, this is updated on an ongoing basis. We track key metrics for each project including the storage technology employed, the size of the installation, the feed-in energy source and supplier.
A key factor in the long term forecast in both grid and behind the meter methodologies is to assess the market outlook for global electricity demand, and also to determine the renewables share of the mix of this growing demand. For this, we consider a number of factors affecting this on a region-by-region basis. Our outlook for battery ESS is calculated by identifying the appropriate technology deployment based on the use case and economics in each storage scenario.
