IBESA launches database for global energy storage products

On behalf of the International Battery Energy and Storage Alliance (IBESA), EuPD Research identified energy storage products, which as of now will be available for the residential segment in Austria, Germany, the USA and Australia to merge them into a comprehensive product database.

The end customers as well as installers have the opportunity to search for products, which meet the relevant criteria (e.g. gross capacity, number of cycles, emergency power supply, and warranty). The goal is to provide market intermediaries and installers with an orientation, starting in the four country markets.

Markus A.W. Hoehner, initiator of IBESA said, “The increasing product diversity not only gives the end costumer a great variety, but also ensures that providers are constantly improving their products whilst offering competitive prices.”

“Nevertheless, the complete collection and comparison of all products is a difficult task for traders and buyers. The database is supposed to be an essential aid.”

More than 500 products were identified in the four markets with country-specific differences. These arise due to the various requirements in the countries, e.g. technical features or certifications that are necessary to sell the product in the certain country.

As an example, a large supplier, which is active in all four country markets and thus takes on the different country-specific challenges, is sonnen. The German battery company is already very present in the USA with a manufacturing plant in San Jose and headquarters in Los Angeles.

Philipp Schroeder, Managing Director/ Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at sonnen GmbH  stated, “Every country market has its own challenges, but we accept them and develop our products in such a way that they meet the requirements of the market, especially of the end customers.”

The global storage product database is expanded and updated continually by additional country markets. In the long term, the goal is to create a comprehensive data base covering all relevant markets worldwide.

This database is for free and available on the IBESA website.
