Clearing the Haze: Demystifying Energy Storage Opportunities in China

May 4, 2015 | State of the Market Report

China’s environmental problems create incentives for energy storage, and its huge auto industry and electricity grid create a large addressable market. Labyrinthine and fickle regulatory structures, however, complicate the picture. This report gives an overview of the policies in China’s automotive and stationary energy storage markets, as well as the major players and technologies. We forecast the growth of automotive and stationary applications for energy storage, finding that the total size of the market grows to $9 billion and 31 GWh in 2025. Despite public and private efforts, challenges in infrastructure and regulation persist in limiting the scale of opportunities.
