Mercedes-Benz residential energy storage systems now available for reservation

The Mercedes-Benz energy storage systems for private use are now available for reservation; interested parties can place a reservation at without obligation. On 29 May, Daimler announced that it was entering the commercial and residential stationary energy storage system (ESS) market with its wholly-owned subsidiary Deutsche ACCUmotive. (Earlier post.)

Developed for demanding service on board cars, the Mercedes-Benz energy storage units meet the very highest safety and quality standards. 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.

Daimler is presenting the Mercedes-Benz energy storage plants for private and industrial use at the Intersolar trade-fair in Munich, Germany, from 10 to 12 June.

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, Deutsche ACCUMOTIVE GmbH und Co. KG develops, produces and markets highly complex Li-ion drive batteries for hybrid and electric vehicles of the brands Mercedes-Benz and smart. 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.
