Catfish is coming! Tesla’s Shanghai Energy Storage Gigafactory gets permission to start construction

Tesla’s first energy storage Gigafactory project outside the United States completed the issuance of a construction permit today

Tesla’s first energy storage Gigafactory project outside the United States completed the issuance of a construction permit today.
It’s more than just cars.
Tesla, which produces and sells new energy vehicles, has recently transformed into a catfish and entered the new energy storage industry.
According to the official WeChat account of the Lingang New Area Management Committee of the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone (hereinafter referred to as the official WeChat account of the Shanghai Lingang Management Committee) on May 13, the Tesla Shanghai Energy Storage Super Factory construction project has been completed. License issuance.
This is Tesla’s first energy storage Gigafactory project outside the United States. It is close to Tesla’s Shanghai Gigafactory.
In 2024, the growth rate of Tesla’s energy storage business will be much higher than that of its electric vehicle business.
Musk said this at the fourth quarter financial report meeting at the end of last year.
According to previous official announcements from the company, Tesla’s Shanghai energy storage factory plans to start construction in May this year and achieve mass production in the first quarter of next year.
The project initially plans to produce 10,000 commercial energy storage batteries per year, with an energy storage scale of nearly 40GWh.
According to data from the Advanced Industrial Research Institute (GGII), China\’s energy storage lithium battery shipments in 2022 will be 130 GWh. This means that the production capacity of Tesla\’s super energy storage factory is equivalent to China\’s energy storage lithium battery shipments in 2022. one-third of the amount.
According to the official WeChat account of the Shanghai Lingang Management Committee, the project covers a total area of ​​about 200,000 square meters and has a total investment of about 1.45 billion yuan. Since the investment intention was confirmed in December last year, it has begun to use the Lingang New Area in the field of engineering construction. Project service package launched.
The official Weibo of the Shanghai Lingang Management Committee stated that in the future, Tesla’s Shanghai Energy Storage Gigafactory will produce ultra-large commercial energy storage batteries (Megapack) to help grid operators, utility companies, etc. store and distribute renewable energy more efficiently. .
More than 200 ultra-large commercial energy storage batteries (Megapack) can form an energy storage power plant and store 1 million kilowatt hours of electricity.
The layout of Tesla\’s first energy storage super factory project outside the United States can be traced back to a year ago.
April 9, 2023. Tesla signed a contract with Lingang New Area on the Tesla Energy Storage Gigafactory project.
On December 22 of that year, Tesla held a land signing ceremony with the Lingang New Area Management Committee in Shanghai, announcing the opening of the Tesla energy storage super factory project.
It not only produces and sells new energy vehicles. The industry also calls Tesla the catfish of the new energy storage industry.
It is reported that each unit of the Megapack that Tesla will manufacture in Lingang, Shanghai, can store more than 3.9 MWh of energy. It can meet the one-hour electricity demand of 3,600 households. It can meet the needs of small microgrids ranging from 1 MWh to GWh+ large-scale power projects. needs.
The \”2024 Global Energy Storage Industry Development Blue Book\” released by the Qidian Research Institute, an industry consulting organization, shows that global lithium battery energy storage system shipments in 2023 will be approximately 192GWh. Among them, the top five shipment companies are Sungrow, BYD, and Te Tesla, CRRC Zhuzhou Institute, and Fluence. Tesla ranked third.
Tesla said that ultra-large commercial energy storage batteries (Megapack) have used renewable energy in North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe and other places to provide local power supplement and guarantee.
The installed capacity of new domestic energy storage power stations continues to grow.
Data from the National Energy Administration shows that as of the end of 2023, the cumulative installed capacity of new energy storage projects that have been completed and put into operation nationwide is 31.39 million kilowatts/66.87 million kilowatt hours. The average energy storage time is 2.1 hours.
The newly installed capacity in 2023 will be approximately 22.6 million kilowatts/48.7 million kilowatt hours, an increase of nearly three times compared with the end of 2022.
