Erlangen, Germany, 21 February 2019: Siemens has launched its first battery storage device, the Junelight Smart Battery, which is specially geared to the requirements of storage and use of self-generated energy in private homes, the company announced in a Press communiqué. The Junelight Smart Battery is now available in Germany and will be launched in Austria in April 2019, the communiqué said.

According to Siemens, the lithium-ion storage device combines functions for intelligent and safe energy management with a modern design. Homeowners can use it to maximise the share of their self-generated energy– for example, from photovoltaic systems, for their own consumption, to minimise their energy procurement costs and to make a long-term contribution towards the reduction of CO2 emissions, the communiqué said. The Junelight Smart Battery coordinates the predictive charging and discharging procedures, depending on the weather-related yield forecast of the photovoltaic system and the individual consumption profile of the household, the communiqué further said. Using the mobile Junelight Smart App, all energy flows – from production, through storage, right down to consumption and grid in-feed – can always be monitored in real time, the communiqué also said. The storage capacity can be flexibly adapted to individual needs at any time, encompassing up to 19.8 kilowatt hours (kWh), the communiqué added.

Andreas Matthé, CEO Siemens Business Unit Low Voltage and 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 to not only lower their energy costs, they are also making a substantive contribution towards the success of the energy transition.”
