BESS are emerging as one of the critical elements for the deployment of intermittent renewable energy sources.  

In December 2023, Barbados, Belize, Egypt, Ghana, India, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritania, Mozambique, Nigeria and Togo joined the BESS consortium at the 2023 UN Climate Change Conference (COP28), held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.   

The countries have set a goal of 5GW of BESS by the end of 2025. These systems are expected to be deployed by the end of 2027.
