    The competition among battery manufacturers is heating up as the market for energy storage systems (ESS) continues to grow. ESS Tech Inc, a leading manufacturer of lithium-ion batteries, is facing stiff competition from Eos Energy Enterprises Inc, Shandong Sacred Sun Power Sources Co Ltd, and RedFlow Ltd. All four companies are vying for a share of the growing ESS market, which is expected to reach $13.5 billion by 2025.

    – Eos Energy Enterprises Inc ($NASDAQ:EOSE)

    Eos Energy Enterprises Inc is a US-based company that engages in the development, manufacture, and commercialization of zinc-air batteries for energy storage applications. The company has a market capitalization of $95.35 million as of 2022 and a return on equity of 414.19%. Eos was founded in 2008 and is headquartered in New Jersey.

    – Shandong Sacred Sun Power Sources Co Ltd ($SZSE:002580)

    Shandong Sacred Sun Power Sources Co Ltd is a leading manufacturer of solar power products in China. The company has a market cap of 5.41B as of 2022 and a return on equity of 2.79%. Sacred Sun Power Sources Co Ltd manufactures solar panels, solar cells, solar inverters, and other solar power products. The company has a strong presence in the Chinese solar power market and is one of the leading suppliers of solar power products in the country.

    – RedFlow Ltd ($ASX:RFX)

    RedFlow Ltd is a company that manufactures and sells red blood cells. The company has a market cap of 64.18M as of 2022 and a Return on Equity of -73.29%. RedFlow Ltd is a publicly traded company on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX: RFL). The company was founded in 1996 and is headquartered in Brisbane, Australia.


    ESS TECH has recently reported its Q2 2023 earnings, which saw a large increase in revenue from the same quarter last year. Despite this, the company reported a net income of -22.9 million, a decrease from the prior year. Investors may be wary of the current financial position of ESS TECH, as higher than expected revenue has not translated to profitability.

    Nonetheless, investors can take some solace in the increased revenue and may feel they are buying at an attractive price compared to the prior year. With strategic investments and cost-cutting measures, the company could turn things around and provide investors with long-term gains.
