Huawei Selling Battery Systems in Japan

Akihabara News (Tokyo) — Shenzhen-based Huawei is set to begin selling large-scale battery systems that store renewable energy to Japanese customers as of March 2022.
This initiative follows only one year after Tesla launched sales of a similar technology in Japan, adding competition to a rapidly growing market.
Huawei is already known for its smaller battery systems which it sources from Contemporary Amperex Technology (CATL), a Chinese manufacturer.
The new large-scale systems will include numerous CATL batteries packaged together in containers sizable enough to store 2,000 kilowatt-hours of energy.
With such a powerful capacity, these energy storage systems might help Japan address some of its energy storage needs.
Fuji Keizai, a research firm, estimates that the Japanese market for battery storage of renewable energy will grow from ¥16.7 billion (US$146 million) in 2020 to ¥45.8 billion (US$400 million) in 2030.
Japan’s government is aiming for 36% to 38% of all energy to be generated by renewables by the end of this decade.
