Eve Energy, meanwhile, manufactures battery cells for energy storage and has its own BESS products. Over the course of 2023, the company shipped 26.29GWh across both. The company also has ‘power battery’ and ‘consumer battery’ divisions.

In Q1 2024, Eve’s energy storage shipments grew 113% to 7.02GWh, and for the full year, the division is set to reach 50GWh of shipments.

The company said that 60-70% of its energy storage shipments are to the overseas market. That is part of a trend of China-based BESS providers increasingly gaining global market share. interviewed Sungrow’s ESS Europe director at Solar Media’s Energy Storage Summit EU 2024.
