SOLARWATT Develops Fully Modular Battery Storage System


SOLARWATT, German supplier of PV systems, has presented the world's first fully modular battery in Berlin. The MyReserve Matrix storage system is almost unlimited in terms of capacity and performance, making it suitable for any number of different applications: from single-family homes, up to industrial use. "While the policy of conversion to renewable energies languishes in abstract discussion, customers from private or commercial sectors can already buy market-ready solutions," says SOLARWATT CEO Detlef Neuhaus. "Our latest generation batteries will fundamentally change the power storage market. This is the first system that flexibly adapts to individual customer requirements, rather than the opposite."

Two Basic Components, Each the Size of a Shoebox.

The MyReserve storage system now consists only of two elements the size of a shoebox: the MyReserve Pack battery module and the MyReserve Command power electronics. All connectors, sensors, and software are completely contained in this small module. "Our entire system is based on a matrix of these two basic building blocks," says Dr. Andreas Gutsch, Managing Director of the SOLARWATT INNOVATION technology centre, who is responsible for the development of the MyReserve battery. If users need more storage capacity or performance, an unlimited number of MyReserve Pack or Command modules can be combined. This allows application-oriented configurations as small as 2.2 kWh or as large as 2 MWh. "With uncompromisingly scalable performance and capacity, there is a home battery on the market for the first time that fits all applications. Our installers need only deal with these two components. This means less training, storage, and transport costs - and, finally, faster and easier installation", says Dr. Gutsch.

The customizable size of the storage system makes profitability even more achievable for end-customers. The modular structure also has advantages for the further internationalization of the SOLARWATT Group: "This consistent modularity will make it easier for us to introduce the MyReserve successfully in the various foreign markets that are of interest to us," adds Carsten Bovenschen, CFO of SOLARWATT GmbH. "If the battery needs to be adapted to specific conditions on site, only one of the building blocks needs to be modified, instead of the entire product. This results in significant scale effects."
