China to install over 30 GW of new energy storage by 2025

China aims to install more than 30 GW of new energy storage capacity by 2025.

The country’s aim is to boost renewable power consumption while ensuring stable operation of the electric grid system. New energy storage refers to electricity storage processes that use electrochemical, compressed air, flywheel and super capacitor systems but not pumped hydro, which uses water stored behind dams to generate electricity when needed. According to the China Energy Storage Alliance, the country has total energy storage capacity of about 35 GW as of 2020, of which only 3.3 GW was new energy storage.
