Industrial And Commercial Energy Storage Outlook


Industrial and commercial energy storage is a typical application of distributed energy storage systems on the user side. It is characterized by being close to distributed photovoltaic power sources and load centers. It can not only effectively improve the consumption rate of clean energy, but also effectively reduce the transmission of electric energy. loss, helping to achieve the goal of "double carbon".
Satisfy the internal power demand of industry and commerce, and realize the maximum self-use of photovoltaic power generation.

Main Demand Of User Side

For factories,industrial parks,commercial buildings,data centers,etc.,distributed energy storage is just needed. They mainly have three types of needs

1、The first is the cost reduction of high energy consumption scenarios. Electricity is a large cost item for industry and commerce. The cost of electricity for data centers accounts for 60%-70% of operating costs.As the peak-to-valley difference in electricity prices widens, these companies will be able to significantly reduce electricity costs by shifting peaks to fill valleys.

2、Transformer expansion.It is mainly used in factories or scenarios that require a large amount of electricity. In ordinary supermarkets or factories, there are no redundant transformers available at the grid level. Because it involves the expansion of transformers in the grid, it is necessary to replace them with energy storage.

Prospect Analysis

According to BNEF's forecast, the world's new installed capacity of industrial and commercial photovoltaic supporting energy storage in 2025 will be 29.7GWh. In the stock photovoltaic industry and commerce, assuming that the penetration rate of energy storage gradually increases, the installed capacity of global industrial and commercial photovoltaic supporting energy storage in 2025 can reach 12.29GWh.

At present, under the policy of widening the peak-valley price difference and setting up peak electricity prices, the economics of installing energy storage for industrial and commercial users have been significantly enhanced. In the future, with the accelerated construction of a unified national power market and the mature application of virtual power plant technology, spot power trading and power auxiliary services will also become economical sources of industrial and commercial energy storage. In addition, the cost reduction of energy storage systems will further improve the economics of industrial and commercial energy storage. These changing trends will promote the rapid formation of industrial and commercial energy storage business models in different application scenarios, endowing industrial and commercial energy storage with strong development potential.
