The potential of the lithium battery energy storage market is enormous, and lithium energy storage technology is continuously maturing. With the development of the new energy internet, there is a huge demand for lithium battery energy storage systems for large-scale centralized renewable energy, distributed generation and microgrid generation, frequency modulation and ancillary services, etc. The lithium battery energy storage market is expected to enter a rapid development stage.
Demand for lithium battery energy storage market
The global lithium battery energy storage industry still maintains a relatively fast development speed. The fast development of the energy storage industry cannot be separated from the promotion of policies, especially the implementation of subsidies, which is an important driving force for industry development. In countries such as Europe and the United States, the energy storage industry has already been included in the national strategy, and these countries are continuously promoting innovation and research and development in the energy storage industry through powerful industrial policies and sustained investment. The lithium battery energy storage market is expected to enter a rapid development stage.
Lithium battery energy storage technology is continuously maturing
Lithium battery energy storage system technology is developing towards large-scale, high-efficiency, long-life, low-cost, and pollution-free direction. So far, various energy storage technologies have been proposed and developed to meet different fields and needs. Lithium-ion battery energy storage is currently the most feasible technology route. Lithium iron phosphate batteries have relatively high energy density and strong endurance, and with the application of lithium iron phosphate positive electrode materials, the service life and safety of traditional carbon-embedded lithium-ion batteries have been greatly improved. It is first applied to the field of energy storage. Due to the continuous maturity and innovation of lithium battery new material research and manufacturing technology, as well as the active participation of related research institutions and industries, lithium-ion batteries have significant advantages such as high specific energy, long cycle life, and green environmental protection, and have become the main supporting power source for various advanced energy storage products at low cost.
Application of lithium battery energy storage technology
At present, the application fields of energy storage technology mainly exist in the following four aspects:
- On the power generation side, its main function is to smooth the power fluctuation of new energy generation, improve the quality of new energy electricity, reduce light and wind abandonment, and improve the economic benefits of new energy generation.
- On the grid side, it participates in frequency modulation, pressure regulation or peak shaving of the grid, and serves as a black start power source. Its regulation is fast and flexible.
- On the load side, peak shaving and valley filling are currently a major promoted product, which can reduce the peak-to-valley load, improve equipment utilization, reduce the demand for power supply capacity, and delay investment in distribution networks.
- Microgrid: The bi-directional regulation of microgrid operations and the compensation part that is indispensable during island operation of microgrids is the energy storage system. From the current application, the three major areas of energy storage batteries are large-scale wind and solar energy storage, backup power for communication base stations, and home energy storage. Among them, the field of backup power for communication base stations currently accounts for a larger proportion, and home energy storage has a larger space for further development and expansion with the wave of “energy homes” raised by Tesla. The short-term momentum of large-scale wind and solar energy storage is not significant.
Selection techniques for lithium battery energy storage power supply
- Look at the appearance, workmanship, size, and craftsmanship of the lithium battery energy storage power supply. We can see the joint of the shell, whether the seam line is wide or not, whether there are burrs, whether there are oil stains, whether the hand feels good or not. Advanced processes have a comfortable feel, polished rubber oil materials have good hand feeling and strong insulation performance.
- Choose manufacturers and brands. There are many brands of lithium battery energy storage systems, but the quality is difficult to see from the appearance. In this case, everyone needs to do more homework before choosing and check more information about the manufacturers online.
- Look at the product parameters. The most important parameter of the lithium battery energy storage power supply is the battery inside, and it is best to choose a power source with lithium iron phosphate batteries.
