China News Service, Beijing, January 25 (Reporter Liu Liang) Bian Guangqi, deputy director of the Energy Conservation and Science and Technology Equipment Department of the National Energy Administration of China, introduced at a press conference on the 25th that China's new energy storage will develop rapidly in 2023 and has been invested in The installed capacity exceeds 30 million kilowatts.

  Bian Guangqi pointed out that as of the end of 2023, the cumulative installed capacity of new energy storage projects that had been completed and put into operation across the country reached 31.39 million kilowatts, with an average energy storage time of 2.1 hours.

The newly installed capacity in 2023 will be approximately 22.6 million kilowatts, an increase of more than 260% from the end of 2022, and nearly 10 times the installed capacity at the end of the 13th Five-Year Plan.

From the perspective of investment scale, since the "14th Five-Year Plan", new new energy storage installed capacity has directly promoted economic investment of more than 100 billion yuan, driving the further expansion of the upstream and downstream of the industrial chain and becoming a "new driving force" for China's economic development.

  Many places have accelerated the development of new energy storage, with 11 provinces (regions) having installed capacity exceeding one million kilowatts.

Data shows that as of the end of 2023, the top five provinces and regions with cumulative installed capacity of new energy storage are: Shandong, Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang, Gansu, and Hunan, with installed capacity exceeding 2 million kilowatts; Ningxia, Guizhou, Guangdong, Hubei, Anhui, The installed capacity of Guangxi and other six provinces exceeds 1 million kilowatts.

In terms of regions, new energy storage has developed rapidly in North and Northwest China, accounting for more than 50% of the country's installed capacity.

  New energy storage technologies are constantly emerging, and the technical roadmap is “letting a hundred flowers bloom”.

Bian Guangqi said that lithium-ion battery energy storage still dominates, and technologies such as compressed air energy storage, flow battery energy storage, and flywheel energy storage are developing rapidly.

As of the end of 2023, 97.4% of lithium-ion battery energy storage has been put into operation.
