Samsung SDI Unveils New ESS Batteries to Target European Market
South Korean battery-maker Samsung SDI showcased a new lineup of ESS models at the Energy Storage Europe 2017, an international exhibition held for three days from March 14 in Dusseldorf, Germany.
During the 3-day exhibition, the S. Korean battery maker unveiled its new ESS products, high capacity E2 and high-power P3 models. Samsung SDI said it greatly increased the capacity and energy density of the E2 and P3 by deploying innovative configurations.
The E2 model is a high-capacity ESS battery that features a substantial increase in the maximum load of cells integrated in a container. The company explained it dramatically raised energy density in the ESS container by upgrading its module design and rack arrangement technology.
The P3 model is designed to maintain a high-power state for a longer time by using 78Ah high-power and high energy density cells, which boast a 15% increase in capacity without changing the size of 68Ah battery cells adopted for previous models.
“We have improved the energy density of the E2 and P3 by increasing capacity while retaining the size of previous ESS containers. A reduction in the scale of ESS facilities will lead to a cut in construction and maintenance costs,” the company said.
