Vorarlberg-based e.battery systems GmbH, developer and manufacturer of high-quality battery systems, has secured STABL Energy's inverter technology in the field of Second Life batteries. The two companies have signed an agreement to cooperate in the development and sale of energy storage systems. The product is to be available worldwide as early as next year, and several megawatt hours of storage will be installed. STABL Energy is a spin-off of the University of the Federal Armed Forces Munich and TU Munich.
e.battery systems, based in Dornbirn (Vorarlberg/Austria), develops and manufactures customized battery systems for various applications. The company, which was only founded in 2019, currently has orders of €50 million on its books and expects tremendous growth in the coming years. e.battery systems sees a future market in energy storage systems with a capacity of over 100 kilowatt hours. They can absorb peak loads in industry and commerce and significantly increase the self-consumption of photovoltaic systems.
Ideally suited for this purpose is the use of second-life modules. Used batteries from electric cars, for example, usually still have 80 percent of their original capacity after 250,000 kilometers. They can be used in energy storage systems for decades, thus saving costs and resources for the costly production of new batteries.
