Powerful and safe battery home storage

The use and storage of renewable energies is also finding increasing application in private and commercial environments: stationary home battery storage systems based on Li-ion battery technology are a market with a great future. BMZ GmbH, a leading system supplier for lithium-ion batteries, develops such battery home storage devices, which are also marketed under its own name as the EES 7.0, EES 9.0 and ESS X storage series. This means that the regenerative solar power generated in photovoltaic systems can be used in private and commercial applications more independently of the time of day and the position of the sun.
Covestro supports the various BMZ battery projects with material selection, during plastic-compatible component design and with CAE-based component simulations to meet the requirements of the UN Transport Test for Batteries (UN 38.3). Further services include moldflow analyses and technical injection molding support.
“Every battery project is technically demanding, which is why I am all the more pleased that plastics from Covestro can make an important contribution here,” explains Jens Ufermann from Covestro, who looks after BMZ GmbH locally, adding: “Together with customers like BMZ, we are working on sustainable product and application developments to master the challenges of future battery technologies.”
High requirements for stationary and mobile applications
“Our in-depth understanding of the diverse applications of battery systems and our many years of experience in materials for battery applications enable us to provide our customers with both technical expertise and suitable products,” says Dr. Julian Marschewski, Market Development Manager in Electric Vehicle Battery Packaging.
Polycarbonate blends with tailored properties
Additional safety in later use is provided by the incorporation of flame retardant grades that meet the high flame retardancy standards of Underwriters Laboratories according to category UL 94 V-0.
