On August 28, the Sino-German Energy Partnership launched its latest report on energy storage. The study “Energy Storage in Germany – Present Developments and Applicability in China” provides insights into the dynamic energy storage market in Germany, its business models, regulatory framework, and technical standards, and discusses implications for China. The study was published at the 2020 edition of the Energy Storage International Conference and Expo (ESIE) hosted by the China Energy Storage Alliance (CNESA). The study was written by Wolfgang Eichhammer, Lin Zheng and Marian Klobasa of Fraunhofer ISI and supported by Cheng Chenlu and Wang Yating from the China Electric Power Planning and Engineering Institute (EPPEI). Approx. 100 Chinese industry experts and researchers attended the report launch, which had to be pre-recorded due to the ongoing health crisis and travel restrictions. Furthermore, Valeska Gottke of the German Energy Storage Systems Association (BVES) presented insights of the German energy storage systems industry at ESIE. Energy storage has been a focal topic of the Sino-German Energy Partnership since 2019.

The Energy Partnership will host a webinar to discuss the report and its implications on September 17, 2020 (tbc). For more information, please contact Maximilian Ryssel (maximilian.ryssel(at)giz.de).
