The storage systems have a combined capacity of 1,530 MW and a maximum storage capacity of 2,752 MWh. This compares to 720 MW/1,361 MWh of distributed storage capacity at the end of June and just 189.5 MW/295.6 MWh at the end of 2020.
The new capacity for 2022 was 1,121 MW/2,032 MWh, which marks the strongest year ever recorded for storage deployment in the country.
According to the new figures, most of the devices – 225,404 – are based on lithium-ion technologies. Most of the storage systems have been deployed in the region of Lombardy, with a combined capacity of 212 MW/379 MWh.
The regional government is implementing a multi-year rebate scheme for residential and commercial storage systems coupled with PV.
