Kreisel Electric, which is building a new battery facility “3K One” in Austria, announced a new home energy storage solution – the MAVERO.
The Kreisel MAVERO is to be available from 2017 in four versions (each under €700/kWh *pre-tax):
- 8 kWh / 4.8 kW / €5.590
- 11 kWh / 4.8 kW / €7.530
- 16 kWh / 9.6 kW / €10.860
- 22 kWh / 9.6 kW / €14.740
The MAVERO reminds us a lot of the Tesla Powerwall, although each block is higher energy, and higher power.
If everything goes well, MAVERO should work for over 20 years, while the first 10 years is guaranteed.
“Kreisel Electric presents MAVERO, the highly efficient and beautifully designed home energy storage system
MAVERO is a highly efficient and flexible energy storage system for private and commercial application. Thanks to the modular design, each unit can be tailored precisely to individual conditions. The flexible home storage system will be available in four different sizes. The battery packs are based on Li-ion technology and the usable capacity ranges from 8 kWh to 22 kWh. The elegantly designed casing is available in two colours and communicates all charge and discharge activities by means of LED visualisation.
Berlin, 15. June 2016 Everyone is talking about renewable energy sources and the energy transition. One major problem for practical implementation, however, is the lack of suitable storage technology for irregular energy production. Austrian manufacturer of high performance batteries Kreisel Electric presented a viable solution for private households and commercial application at the Motorwerk in Berlin on June 15.
The new home storage system MAVERO – be self-sufficient
The name comes from the Italian language (“ma vero”) and translates roughly as “but true”. It is “true” that you can now supply yourself with energy from renewable sources – and, in the ideal scenario, even “fill up” your electric car. MAVERO enables independence from natural fluctuations in supply (e.g. wind lulls or insufficient sunlight) and worsening feed-in compensation from energy providers.
“The market is crying out for a high-end energy storage technology solution that is also stylish and really worth it for everyone,” stated Markus Kreisel, Marketing Manager with Kreisel Electric, at the premiere in Berlin.
Electricity storage with an elegant outfit
MAVERO is a wall-mounted home energy storage system that stores electricity from any renewable energy source. With its sophisticated design and a size of 105 x 140 cm (w x h), it can be installed in almost any interior space – even in the living room. MAVERO will be available in four versions, ranging from 8 to 22 kWh output volume, and a weight of 70 kg to 170 kg. The discharge power ranges from 4.8 to 9.6 kW in the voltage range from 288 to 384 V. Owners of electric vehicles in particular will be pleased, since the system enables accelerated loading with 100% self-generated electricity. Compared to competitors, the efficiency rate is unrivalled at 96% and the space requirement is considerably lower. With an installation volume of 1.95 dm3/kWh, Kreisel is able to achieve 70% more capacity in the MAVERO system in roughly the same size, thanks to their proprietary high-performance batteries.
Modular design and moderate price
The system is modular and can be installed quickly by a single technician at a relatively low cost. The modular design also offers flexible optimization based on your energy needs, since additional modules can be added later. An innovative lighting design (ambient interface LED) communicates the battery level and the charge and discharge activities. Kreisel Electric also wants to break new ground in terms of the price with their new “Kreisel Energy” division. Ultimately, the retail price should be under €700 per kWh.
Home storage paving the way for the energy revolution
MAVERO is designed to provide enough energy each day for the average household. The models MAVERO 20 and 28 have a higher capacity for more demanding applications like charging electric cars.”
