2023 Semi-Annual Summary of New Energy Storage Subsidy Policies

Aug 1, 2023

In 2023, the energy storage track entered a period of rapid development. According to data released by the National Energy Board, January - June 2023, China's newly commissioned new energy storage installed capacity of about 8.63 million kilowatts / 17.72 million kilowatt-hours, equivalent to the sum of the cumulative installed capacity of previous years.

From the point of view of the scale of investment, according to the current market price calculation, new energy storage put into operation to pull direct investment of more than 30 billion yuan.

Released from around the policy point of view, the new energy storage subsidy policy reached 26, of which Guangdong Province and Zhejiang Province issued more subsidy policy. Subsidised applications mainly include: user-side energy storage, new energy distribution storage and independent energy storage.

Subsidies are provided in the form of investment subsidies, capacity subsidies and discharge subsidies. The investment subsidy issued by the Guangzhou government is the highest, amounting to 30% of the industrialisation cost and up to RMB 10 million; the capacity subsidy is mostly based on the power of the storage plant, and in some areas of Zhejiang Province, it can reach RMB 300/kW; the discharge subsidy is the highest in Wenzhou City, with a subsidy for user-side storage of up to RMB 0.8/kWh; and most of the policies stipulate constraints such as limitations on the number of subsidised projects, the amount of subsidy, and the time limitations. cap, and constraints such as time limits.

In the first half of 2023, the introduction of subsidy policies around the world had a positive significance in promoting the development of the energy storage industry, and strongly promoted the development of the regional new energy storage industry.

The subsidy policies are as follows
