Samsung SDI announced on June 9 that it will showcase their latest energy storage system (ESS) products at the Intersolar 2015, the largest solar and ESS exhibition in the world, being held in Munich, Germany, from June 10 to 12.
In the event, the company will unveil its new 8.0kWh All-in-One product. The All-in-One home ESS has been customized for some European countries such as Germany and Austria, where residential houses receive electricity from three different power plants.
Since one ESS can connect to three different power lines at the same time, it is more efficient. Compared with other companies’ products that use the same technology, the company has raised price competitiveness while reducing its size by more than 30 percent, using high-capacity batteries.
Samsung SDI will also unveil other new products with the same size but different capacities such as 5.5kWh ESS with 50 percent more storage, and 7.2kWh ESS, which storage capacity can be expanded to 10.8kWh any time the customer wants.
In June last year, Samsung SDI released the All-in-One home ESS for the first time as a battery maker, and started selling the product in Germany, the U.K., and Australia where the home ESS market is strong.
When a customer purchases the All-in-One product, it can be installed without any additional purchase of parts. Therefore, it can cut down costs and lessen concerns over aftercare, said Samsung SDI.
