The energy transition is key for reducing our carbon emissions. During the first half of 2020, Germany’s share of renewables exceeded 55% of net electricity production. Balancing the rising share of intermittent renewables calls for new solutions and business models. In Germany, energy storage has experienced a dynamic market environment in recent years, particularly for providing ancillary services, and in home applications. This report “Energy Storage in Germany – Present Developments and Applicability in China” sheds light on the important topic of energy storage. It describes the role of and framework for energy storage in Germany and provides case studies on different storage applications.
