On the morning of November 9, the first World Energy Storage Conference opened in Ningde City, Fujian Province. With the theme of “New Energy Storage with a Global Perspective”, this conference is jointly hosted by the Ningde Municipal People’s Government, the Fujian Provincial Department of Industry and Information Technology, and the Equipment Industry Development Center of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, aiming to create a world-class energy storage exchange and cooperation platform. , to promote high-quality development of the energy storage industry.
Lin Ruiliang announced the opening of the conference and delivered a speech. He said that currently, Fujian is promoting high-quality development in an all-round way. The new energy storage industry is one of the strategic emerging industries focused on by the country, with unlimited development potential. Fujian will conscientiously implement the spirit of the National New Industrialization Conference and firmly build an energy storage industry cluster with the most complete global industrial chain and the strongest comprehensive competitiveness.
Su Bo pointed out that the global energy structure is accelerating adjustment, and the energy system and development model are entering a new stage dominated by non-fossil energy. The rapid development of new energy has also put forward urgent requirements for the accelerated development of the energy storage industry. The development of new energy storage is essential for consumption. New energy, peak shaving and valley filling, enhancing grid stability, and improving energy and power system regulation capabilities, comprehensive efficiency and security capabilities play an important supporting role.
Combus pointed out that new energy storage will change the way we produce, distribute and utilize energy. This dynamic and growing field is key and fundamental to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and safeguarding the well-being of future generations. The World Energy Storage Conference provides us with an important communication platform to promote cooperation and accelerate the promotion of new energy storage scenarios and applications.
Miao Changxing said that the scale of my country’s energy storage industry is expanding rapidly, and the output value of my country’s lithium-ion battery energy storage industry chain will be close to 200 billion yuan in 2022. In the first half of 2023, the newly put into operation new energy storage installed capacity reached 8.63 million kilowatts, which is equivalent to the total installed capacity in the previous years. In the next step, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will work with relevant parties to jointly promote the high-quality development of the energy storage industry. The first is to accelerate the improvement of industrial innovation capabilities, the second is to focus on pilot verification and scenario traction, the third is to optimize the industrial development ecology, and the fourth is to deepen international cooperation. .
Liang Weixin delivered a welcome speech for the conference. He introduced that Ningde City has cultivated four internationally competitive industrial landmarks including lithium battery new energy, new energy vehicles, stainless steel new materials, and copper materials. It has engraved the mark of Ningde and led Ningde onto the “fast lane” of high-quality development, becoming an important growth pole for the development of Fujian Province. Relying on the strong traction of leading companies such as CATL, CATL has seized opportunities on the energy storage track and taken the lead. Its global market share of energy storage batteries has exceeded 40%, ranking first in the world for two consecutive years.
At the meeting, the China Machinery Industry Federation awarded Ningde the title of “China’s New Energy Battery Capital”.
Ningde City will take this honor as an opportunity to continue to develop the new energy battery industry with high quality, take scientific and technological progress and technological innovation as the driving force, and market demand as the guide, accelerate industrial upgrading and structural adjustment, further improve product quality, and continue to promote the brand Strategy, with the goal of leading new energy battery technological innovation, building a world-class new energy and new material core area and a world-class advantageous industrial cluster, and making greater contributions to the development of the new energy battery industry.
The 2023 World Energy Storage Conference is an important platform to promote cooperation in the energy storage industry. At the meeting, Ningde City held a centralized project signing ceremony, signing 63 projects with a total planned investment of 119.12 billion yuan. Covering key materials for positive and negative electrodes of energy storage batteries, supporting structural parts, intelligent equipment and other upstream supporting products; production of midstream products such as energy storage batteries, PACK, industrial and commercial energy storage and household energy storage; electric aviation, electric ships, optical storage charging and inspection, offshore With new downstream application scenarios such as wind power, offshore photovoltaics, and energy storage technology services, we strive to build a full industry chain ecosystem.
In addition to the opening ceremony, the conference also held the main forum and roundtable on the future development of energy storage equipment, including “Energy Storage Market, Policy and Environment from a Global Perspective”, “Technology Driven, Innovative Energy Storage”, “New Scenarios for Energy Storage” and application” three major themed forums and other series of activities. The conference also organized the China (Ningde) International New Energy Industry and Energy Storage Equipment Expo at the same time. This conference focuses on the new trends in the development of the energy storage industry under the background of the implementation of the “dual carbon” strategy, explores new paths for the energy storage market, policy environment, technological innovation, and scenario application, and brings together the wisdom of many parties to jointly promote the high-quality development of the energy storage industry. .
