69 U.S. enterprises entered the top 500 list, 5 less than last year, accounting for 13.8%, ranking second. 54 Japanese enterprises entered the top 500 list, the same as last year, accounting for 10.8%, ranking third. Germanys 27 enterprises entered the top 500 list, 2 less than last year, accounting for 5.4%, ranking fourth. South Koreas 20 enterprises entered the top 500 list, one less than last year, accounting for 4%, ranking fifth.
Entry threshold of global top 500 new energy enterprises in 2016-2020 (100 million yuan)
Judging from the entry threshold of the list, the lowest operating income of the top 500 enterprises in 2020 is 1.554 billion yuan, which is 131 million yuan higher than that of 1.423 billion yuan in 2019. The growth rate of the top 500 enterprises began to recover after experiencing a decline.
The same is true for the total operating income of enterprises. In 2020, the total operating revenue of top 500 enterprises was 4223.4 billion yuan, an increase of 425.9 billion yuan compared with that in 2019, with a year-on-year increase of 11.05%. The growth rate rose again after two years of continuous decline.
2020 global top 500 new energy enterprises list also shows that Asian and European enterprises are the core force of the total revenue increase of the top 500 enterprises. In terms of the number of enterprises on the list, 107 are European enterprises and 298 are selected from Asia.
In terms of the total operating revenue of the listed enterprises, the total operating revenue of the selected enterprises in Asia was 2267 billion yuan, an increase of 305.2 billion yuan compared with that in 2019, accounting for 53.68% of the total revenue of the top 500 enterprises. The total operating revenue of European enterprises was 1109.7 billion yuan, an increase of 120 billion yuan over 2019, accounting for 26.28%.
It is worth noting that China is at the heart of Asias growth. In 2020, Chinas top 500 enterprises show a situation of both quantity and quality. Although the number of enterprises on the list is less than that in 2019, the scale of total operating income has increased significantly, reaching 1598.3 billion yuan, with a year-on-year growth of 16.44%, accounting for 73.95% of the total added value of Asia. With the promotion of Chinas status in the global new energy industry, the scale of the top 500 Chinese enterprises is also growing rapidly, and the competitiveness of enterprises is enhanced.
According to the type of energy enterprises, in 2020, the number of top 500 energy storage enterprises will decrease, the total operating income of energy storage enterprises will significantly withdraw, the solar energy enterprises will grow slightly, and the solar energy industry will surpass the energy storage industry.
Multi industry enterprises refer to the enterprises that carry out diversified operation but mainly focus on new energy such as solar energy, biomass energy, energy storage, wind energy and hydrogen energy. In terms of the number of enterprises listed on the list, 238 are diversified industries, ranking first; 90 are solar energy enterprises, 81 are energy storage battery enterprises, 51 are biomass energy enterprises, 36 are wind energy enterprises, 2 are hydrogen energy enterprises and 2 are geothermal energy enterprises.
In terms of the scale of operating income, the total operating income of diversified industrial enterprises is 1994.3 billion yuan, accounting for 47.22% of the total operating income, and 37.52% in 2019. Solar energy enterprises accounted for 672.2 billion yuan, accounting for 15.92% of the total operating income, and 17.49% in 2019. Energy storage battery enterprises decreased significantly from 735.8 billion yuan last year to 659.2 billion yuan, accounting for 15.61% of the total operating revenue, and 19.38% in 2019.
Biomass energy enterprises accounted for 476.4 billion yuan, accounting for 11.28% of the total operating revenue. Wind energy enterprises reached 406.3 billion yuan, accounting for 9.62%. Hydrogen energy enterprises reached 7.1 billion yuan, accounting for 0.17%. Geothermal energy enterprises reached 7.8 billion yuan, accounting for 0.19%.
China Energy Economics Research Institute believes that the phenomenon of large-scale withdrawal of energy storage enterprises is directly related to the industry changes. In 2019, although the global sales of new energy vehicles will increase by 10%, the Chinese market will decline. Moreover, the total shipment volume of the top 10 power battery companies in the world accounted for 85% of the global market share in 2019, showing that the stronger the stronger.
Under the influence of dual factors, many small and medium-sized battery enterprises are facing survival crisis, the industry began to integrate, and the industrial concentration increased. This is also the reason why the number of energy storage enterprises on the list has become smaller and the revenue has been significantly withdrawn.
