Mercedes-Benz Energy Ready To Deliver Energy Storage Units In The UK  Mercedes-Benz Energy is ready for the delivery of the first energy storage units for residential use to homeowners in the UK.

Originally developed for the rigorous demands of automotive operation, the Mercedes-Benz energy storage units are lithium-ion batteries that meet the very highest safety and quality standards. They are based on the technology used by Daimler since 2012 in over 80,000 hybrid and full electric vehicles.

Up to eight battery modules with an energy capacity of 2.5 kWh each can be combined to produce an energy storage unit with a capacity of up to 20 kWh. Industrial applications have even greater scalability. By using the storage units, households with their own solar energy systems can store surplus power with virtually no losses. By combining renewable energy sources with a battery storage unit, households can increase their self-consumption of generated energy to as much as 65 per cent, thereby bringing about their own 'private energy revolution'.

Home retail price for home electricity generation is calculated based on a customised package of components. These generally consist of a photovoltaic (solar) system, a battery inverter, an energy management system and the Mercedes-Benz energy storage unit itself, plus the cost of installation.

A network of qualified partners and distributors makes planning and installation easy. At present, Mercedes-Benz Energy is working in the UK with distributors such as Alternergy, Innasol and Wind & Sun, as well as with partners who offer a complete system installation, such as Solar Frontier. The latter's network of qualified installers can advise customers on-site, make offers on all components and manage all planning and installation. Stationary battery storage systems are generally installed together with solar panels.

'There is tremendous interest in our energy storage units in the UK. We're very pleased to be able to offer Mercedes-Benz Energy Storage Home to customers here,' said Marc Thomas, Managing Director of Mercedes-Benz Energy.

UK sales is the latest step forward for Mercedes-Benz Energy, following the successful market introduction of energy storage products, the start of large-scale industrial projects in the primary reserve market, and the founding of Mercedes-Benz Energy Americas.

Customers can find out more about having a Mercedes-Benz energy storage system in their home and find local installers at www.mercedes-benz-energy.com.
