Siemens has launched its first battery storage system specifically geared towards households.

They can use the Junelight Smart Battery to maximise their share of self-generated power from solar panels, for their own consumption and reduce costs and emissions.

It has a total capacity of 19.8kWh and all the energy flow, from production and storage to consumption and grid feed-in of electricity can be monitored in real time through an app.

Andreas Matthé, CEO of the Siemens Business Unit Low Voltage Products said: “More and more homeowners are generating their own solar power – and in light of sinking feed-in tariffs and rising electricity prices, they want to use it completely for their own consumption wherever possible.

“The Junelight Smart Battery creates the technical basis for future-driven, sustainable and economical energy management within the home. This allows homeowners not only to lower their energy costs, they are also making a substantive contribution towards the success of the energy transition.”

The battery storage is available in Germany and will be launched in Austria in April 2019.
