Mercedes-Benz Energy Solar Battery
Mercedes-Benz need no introduction as a car manufacturer, but you may not be so familiar with the renewable energy side of their business. Having ventured into the electric and hybrid vehicles market it was a natural next step to produce an energy storage system to support their cars and a home energy storage system was not far behind.
Mercedes-Benz Energy produce stationary battery storage systems using lithium-ion technology. The batteries are made in Germany by Daimler’s subsidiary, ACCUMOTIVE.
The aim, as with all solar energy storage systems, is to enable you to “take control of your own power and optimise your home energy consumption”. By storing the energy generated by your solar PV system you can put it work when the sun isn’t shining or in the event of a power failure. This means less reliance on the National Grid and a higher proportion of renewable energy used in your day to day life.
