See below for our Battery Energy Stationary Storage Capacity Tracker, November 2021. 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:
- Hitachi Energy, previously Hitachi ABB Power Grids, launched a new version of its PowerStore battery storage system. With batteries provided by CATL (LFP) and Samsung SDI (NCM).
- The UK National Highways company announced it will install around 20 BESS units at roadside service stations around the UK, to support the roll-out of rapid EV charging infrastructure.
- In November, over 3,000MWh of BESS entered operation across 13 locations, these ranged in size from 1MWh to 900MWh. Over 8,000MWh of new BESS was announced or proposed.
BESS Capacity Tracker – what does it tell us?
In November, over 3,000MWh of BESS entered operation, across 13 locations, in the biggest month for new operational capacity we have seen this year. Over 8,000MWh of new BESS, across 25 projects, was announced. YTD installed grid capacity has now surpassed 10GWh, with a further 4GWh of capacity due to be completed this year.
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.
