According to statistics by EnergyTrend , a division of TrendForce , sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries remain the most widely used UPSs for datacenters. Yet lithium batteries possess advantages such as a long lifespan, quick charge/discharge speeds and a small volume, and are poised to replace SLA batteries in the future. By 2019, lithium batteries comprise 12% of batteries used in datacenters. This percentage is predicted to grow to 16% in 2020.Green EnergyWed, 05 Jun 2019 06:22:00 +00003255 at http://www.trendforce.comTaiwan EPC Supplier Rankings for 2018: Chailease Energy's Market Share Gone Above 10%, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3232.htmlAccording to the latest Regional Project Report – “Solar Powering Taiwan: Special Report ” by EnergyTrend , a division of TrendForce , new installations in the Taiwan's PV system market may reach 1.58GW in 2019.
