Accelerating Home Energy Storage

One trend in the low-carbon energy transition is the change from consumers to prosumers, where households generate their own renewable electricity. xStorage home battery systems – built using second-life Nissan Leaf batteries – enable prosumers to store excess renewable electricity for use at times when the sun isn’t shining. This allows the 24-hour use of renewable energy in the home, saves the cost of buying from the grid at peak times, and protects against outages. The units, storing up to 7.5 kWh, are built in collaboration with Nissan and the power management firm Eaton.
