Samsung SDI to unveil residential energy storage system products at Intersolar Europe 2017
Samsung SDI will unveil its residential energy storage system products at the world’s largest exhibition for the ESS and solar industries- Intersolar Europe 2017. Residential ESS is a battery system installed in homes. It saves electricity generated from solar panels in batteries for later use. The so-called high-capacity modules are scalable to connect maximum 39 basic modules with a 4.8 kilowatt-hour capacity. This means the storage capacity can increase up to 39 times or roughly 188 kWh. The large connection was not possible before due to product instability.
Samsung will also unveil its high-voltage ESS modules that can increase its voltage from 50 to 600 volts. The module connected a number of cylindrical batteries to materialize high voltage. High-voltage modules enable homes to more easily generate widely used 200 voltage and save on the costs of parts needed for voltage transformation. Mass production of the two models will begin in the latter half of this year. Intersolar Europe is the world’s leading exhibition for the solar industry and its partners and takes place annually at the Messe München exhibition center in Munich, Germany.
