LG Chem Ltd. (Seoul, South Korea) a global provider of lithium-ion batteries for automotive, stationary and consumer applications, has formally launched its range of award-winning residential battery systems in the North American market.

The launch follows successful completion of UL certification and represents LG Chem’s initial foray into the North American residential energy storage market.

Since 2013, LG Chem has been at the forefront of providing residential battery storage (RESU) systems and has earned a strong reputation for quality, reliability and dependability.

The residential systems’ pioneering features were recognized with the ees AWARD 2016 and, in the fast-growing Australian market, LG Chem has quickly established itself as the market leader according to EuPD Research.

 

 

AC- and DC-coupled batteries compatible with SolarEdge’s DC coupled storage solution for both PV and storage

LG Chem’s North American residential battery range offers AC- and DC-coupled solutions with capacities up to 9.8 kilowatt hours (kWh). Two voltage options are available, pre-matched with compatible inverters and suitable for both indoor and outdoor installation:

The 400V RESU10H (9.8kWh) product is compatible with SolarEdge’s “StorEdge”, which is a DC coupled storage solution based on a single inverter for both PV and storage.

Additional inverter compatibility options will become available later in 2017 to provide homeowners with a range of pre-tested solutions from the industry’s leading suppliers.

LG Chem’s residential batteries will be available via a number of leading solar/storage providers in North America.

“LG Chem’s entry into the North American residential battery market is based on much planning, product development and system testing. We’re confident that our experience gained in Europe and Asia, coupled with strong inverter and distribution partners, will deliver exceptional performance and reliability for our residential customers in the U.S. and Canada,” said Peter Gibson, Head of ESS Sales for LG Chem in North America.
