Expanding Storage Capacities to Drive Sustainability for a Greener Future

BYD Battery-Box doubled delivery capacity in 2022 and has now 400,000 systems installed

Shenzhen/Berlin, February 09, 2023BYD Co. Ltd., one of the world’s largest manufacturers of rechargeable batteries, shared a review of a successful year 2022, and gives an outlook on plans for 2023. With more than 250,000 BYD Battery-Box systems delivered in 2022, the company was able to double the 2021 delivery numbers and expects to expand the production again in 2023. A critical success factor for BYD is the thriving partner network with more than 15,000 partners as well as the “BePartner” program for installers, which will also be further developed in 2023.

2022 was a challenging year in many respects. With new waves of the pandemic, economic challenges and political conflicts our global climate goals often had to take a back-seat in the news reports. The energy crisis however showed once more how important a wider application for renewable energies will be for both a stable energy supply and in order to reach global climate goals. A key element for a wider utilization of renewable energy is without doubt the expansion of storage capacities and the implementation of flexible storage solutions[i]. BloombergNEF for example expects the global energy storage market to grow 15-fold by 2030.[ii] And both at political and economic conferences, including the World Economic Forum, experts confirmed that achieving climate goals and renewable targets first requires solving the storage conundrum – which sees us needing more storage capacities than can be produced currently.[iii]

Despite the challenging circumstances BYD was able to ship more than 250,000 BYD Battery-Box systems. Worldwide there are now more than 400.000 systems installed. According to analyst reports BYD Battery-Box has been the most popular energy storage battery system with the highest market share in many regions[iv].

“BYD stands for Build Your Dreams. Our company’s vision and goal is providing zero-emission energy solutions that reduce global reliance on fossil fuels”, explains AD Huang, Head of the BYD Battery-Box Business. “Our long heritage in battery development is not only driving our green mobility business divisions but has also been the basis for the success of our flagship energy storage system BYD Battery-Box. Together with our partners we work on the common goal to make renewable energy even more accessible and usable for a wide variety of application scenarios.”

“BePartners” – Joining forces for a common goal

The BYD Battery-Box partners play an integral role in the market adoption of the solution and thereby in reaching the goals on the way to a greener future. The BYDs therefore further expanding the partner program “Be Partner” for installers as well as additional partner activities with the system partners.

Registered participants of the “Be Partner” program profit from bonus points for installations of the Battery-Box Premium systems. After registration of the projects, bonus points can be used to receive benefits such as marketing packages, products, chargers, etc. The total number of points can also elevate an installers’ status level to receive even more corresponding benefits.

After the success of the 2022 in-person events – e.g. the Battery-Box Days events series – across the globe, the team will continue the program in 2023. These offline events are typically arranged by the regional BYD and a partner company and includes information on the latest Battery-Box models, new features, application examples, installation tips and the option for an exchange and networking with technology and installation experts. The events complement the many online trainings and webinars, BYD and partners arrange throughout the year.

In addition to these dedicated events, partners and customers will have the opportunity to meet the Battery-Box teams at even more industry events such as InterSolutions, Genera, ENEX, The Smarter E (Intersolar/EES), Solar Solutions Amsterdam, Key Energy, Middle East Energy Dubai, The Solar Show Africa Johannesburg, Smart Energy Sydney, All Energy Melbourne and Solar Power International.

“We highly appreciate the great support and quality work our partners have contributed to the success of the Battery-Box across the markets”, said AD Huang. “We also encourage them to keep sharing all the fantastic installation examples with our team, so we can demonstrate the many different application scenarios that can profit from renewable energy production and storage solutions.”

Partners are welcome to share information and material of installation examples to Yeung Jing (Jing.Yeung@byd.com) to profit from joint communication activities.
