LI-ION BATTERY

BYD-Battery-Box-H5.0-2

BYD stands for Build Your Dreams – and among BYD’s many dreams is being the no.1 company for solar battery storage. Situated in China, BYD has an impressive pedigree. Founded back in 1995 and listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 2002, it started out as a battery manufacturer and entered the automobile sector in 2003. That’s the opposite of Tesla, which started out on electric vehicles and then moved into solar battery storage. The USD $110 billion dollar company has built many of the million plus electric buses running around China (and many used elsewhere) – so it’s had plenty of practice in developing EV and battery technology that gets a good workout. While many Australians may not have heard of the company, it’s also one of the world’s largest lithium-ion battery manufacturers. BYD is a publicly traded company with 60% of its stocks owned by U.S. investors. Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway is the largest single shareholder at 8%.

Sonnen Battery
Sonnen founded in 2010 is leading German lithium battery system manufacturer and the largest residential battery company in Europe. Until recently Sonnen also known as sonnenBatterie had deployed the largest amount of home battery systems globally, surpassing even Tesla and LG Chem. However, the competition has heated up over the last few years with many low-cost battery systems entering the market. Sonnen, being a premium option also has a premium price & this can be a barrier to those on a tight budget. To help reduce pricing and become more competitive in other markets, Sonnen began manufacturing and assembling systems in California in 2015 & more recently in South Australia (Nov 2018), with the aid of local Government rebates. Sonnen battery owners in NSW, QLD (Energex region), SA, ACT, TAS and VIC have the option of joining sonnenFlat, which enables them to receive a guaranteed annual allowance of electricity from the mains grid for a fixed monthly fee, with supply charge incl.

Sungrow Batteries
Sungrow is probably best known for its inverters – but it also manufactures solar batteries. Sungrow was founded in 1997 by Professor Renxian Cao, who was previously a teacher at the Hefei University of Technology. Since its humble beginnings, the company has grown into one of the world’s largest manufacturers of inverters. In more recent years, it has turned its attention to energy storage. The next and current Sungrow home battery solution available in Australia is the SBR HV, and this has been a game-changer for the company. The SBR HV is a stackable system offering 3.2kWh usable capacity in each module. The minimum system capacity is 9.6kWh (3 modules), which is expandable to 25.6 kWh – and up to 4 of these battery systems can be connected in parallel. SBR HV cells are based on lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO) technology, widely regarded as the safest of all commercially available lithium-ion chemistries.

Tesla Power Wall 2 Battery
Tesla, Inc. was founded in 2003, originally as Tesla Motors. Tesla is headquartered in the USA’s San Francisco Bay Area, with office locations around the world (including Sydney Australia). After cutting its teeth on electric vehicle development, Tesla then expanded into commercial and home battery storage. The company arrived on the home energy storage scene accompanied by great fanfare with the Tesla Powerwall battery back in 2015, which was followed by the Powerwall 2 in 2016. The Powerwall is produced in the Tesla Gigafactory in Nevada USA, which also manufactures Tesla Model 3 electric motors and the company’s commercial/utility storage solution, the Powerpack. With easy installation and a minimalist design, Powerwall complements a variety of home styles. The compact, all-in-one construction features versatile mounting options for indoor or outdoor spaces.

Tesla Power Wall 3 Battery

Tesla recently unveiled the Tesla Powerwall 3, sparking interest worldwide. But what implications does this hold for the Australian market? Here’s a rundown of what we’ve gathered thus far.

Regarding availability in Australia, while the Powerwall 3 Beta Version has been introduced exclusively in the US market, its anticipated arrival for consumer purchase down under is projected for late 2024. However, there’s a possibility of this timeline extending into 2025, given historical trends.

One significant deviation between the Powerwall 2 and its successor, the Powerwall 3, lies in the former’s inclusion of a fully integrated solar inverter. This means that consumers won’t necessitate purchasing a separate hybrid solar inverter from established brands like SolarEdge, Sungrow, or Fronius to integrate their battery with their solar setup.

This development is advantageous for those seeking to implement a fresh solar and battery system. However, for individuals with existing solar setups, the Powerwall 3 may not be the ideal choice. Due to its integrated inverter, it’s incompatible with other solar inverters and cannot be retrofitted alongside previous Powerwall models.
