Currently, with the continuous expansion of the electric vehicle market, the utilization rate of lithium batteries is also increasing. The electric vehicle market tends to use lithium batteries as power because lithium batteries have many advantages and are low cost. Therefore, the development of the electric vehicle market has driven the rapid development of lithium batteries in cars industry. Therefore, studying the lithium battery industry and analyzing its application in energy storage is of great significance.
Lithium batteries have a wide range of applications, and their prospects are widely optimistic. Its application prospects can be analyzed from the following aspects:
The use of lithium batteries can effectively meet the needs of new energy grid connection. Using lithium batteries can improve the quality of electricity, achieve peak cutting and valley filling, and ensure continuous power generation of new energy.
Lithium battery distributed energy storage is applied in factories and buildings, mainly to effectively cut peaks and fill valleys.
The application of electric vehicles is becoming more and more widespread, especially now that environmental protection is in an important position, electric vehicles are safe and environmentally friendly, and there is a trend of replacing diesel and gasoline vehicles. Electric vehicles need to be charged, which requires lithium batteries to be applied in electric vehicle charging stations, and lithium batteries are also used as energy storage batteries for electric vehicles.
It can be used in remote areas where power supply is difficult, using lithium batteries.
It can be used for power grid side, such as substation energy storage, to effectively reduce power grid expansion investment. In addition, the market prospect of lithium battery energy storage is also widely optimistic, and its usage rate is gradually increasing every year.
High specific capacity, low cost, and high lifespan are the development directions of the next generation of lithium batteries. At present, the performance indicators of lithium batteries can meet market needs, but in the future, more efforts need to be made in terms of safety, service life, and economy. At the same time, technical issues need to be solved, including consistency manufacturing technology, further research on high specific energy lithium battery cathode materials, safety and service life, heat management technology, system state monitoring and balance technology, etc.
In summary, the lithium battery energy storage industry is at an upward stage in terms of technology, application, and market prospects. How to ensure the technological update of lithium batteries and meet market demand is an area that needs further improvement. In the future, with the improvement of technology level and the gradual reduction of cost, lithium batteries will have greater space in energy storage applications and have a very good market prospect.
