The Mercedes-Benz energy storage plants for private use are available for order as of now, deliveries are scheduled to begin in September. Interested parties can place a reservation at www.schlauerspeichern.de without obligation.
Developed for demanding service on board cars, the Mercedes-Benz energy storage units meet the very highest safety and quality standards, the company reports. Up to eight battery modules with an energy content of 2.5 kWh can be combined into an energy storage plant with a capacity of 20 kWh. Households with their own photovoltaic systems can thus buffer surplus solar power virtually free of any losses.
With its 100% subsidiary Deutsche ACCUmotive, Daimler AG offers stationary energy storage plants for companies and private households. The first industrial-scale lithium-ion unit is already on the grid. Daimler is also aiming to enter into cooperation with other sales and distribution partners both in Germany and at international level.
Established in 2009, the Daimler subsidiary develops, produces and markets highly complex drive batteries for hybrid and electric vehicles of the brands Mercedes-Benz and smart on the basis of lithium-ion technology. Deutsche ACCUmotive’s entry into the new business field of stationary energy storage plants for industrial customers and private applications offers the company fresh opportunities for growth, according to Daimler’s press department.
At the same time, the automobile manufacturer is making an active contribution to the process of transition towards sustainable energy generation and continuing the success story of German-based battery production.
