The end of ERGON —We should have PRIVATISED when we had the chance—–Mercedes to sell home batteries——-Sales launch of private energy storage plants | Daimler Global Media Site > Technology > Environment
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 presents the Mercedes-Benz energy storage plants for private and industrial use on the Intersolar trade-fair in Munich, Germany, from 10th to 12th June (Stand B1.530).
From cars to power grids: battery technology from Daimler
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, Deutsche ACCUMOTIVE GmbH und Co. KG 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. At the same time, Daimler AG is making an active contribution to the process of transition towards sustainable energy generation and continuing the success story of German-based battery production.
