Daimler AG is continuing to expand its network of expertise in the field of lithium-ion battery applications. Within this innovative line of business, the newly established Mercedes-Benz Energy GmbH is assuming the development and global sale of Mercedes-Benz brand stationary energy storage with immediate effect.

Thus, Daimler is focusing even more on the growing market for stationary batteries. The production of the systems remains the core expertise of Daimler’s other wholly owned subsidiary, Deutsche ACCUMOTIVE GmbH & Co. KG. “This now enables us to respond with even greater flexibility to our customers’ requirements,” said Harald Kröger, Head of Development Electrics/Electronics and E-Drive at Daimler AG. With the growing electrification of the automobile, demand for lithium-ion batteries is constantly rising. By expanding this line of business to include stationary private and industrial applications, Daimler AG with its wholly owned subsidiary Deutsche ACCUMOTIVE GmbH & Co. KG already opened up additional prospects for growth last year. Delivery of domestic storage solutions for the German market started in April. Work also started on setting up the first large-scale industrial projects in the field of primary regulation energy. With the establishment of Mercedes-Benz Energy GmbH based in Kamenz/Saxony, the company is now taking another step toward expanding the stationary storage business. International expansion and collaboration with further partners are particularly high on the agenda.

Greater flexibility thanks to increased focus
Mercedes-Benz Energy relies on close collaboration with its associated companies. ACCUMOTIVE will produce both the stationary and automotive storage systems. The development, sale and installation of stationary applications are the responsibility of Mercedes-Benz Energy. The partnership promises more rapid growth for both lines of business.Establishing a separate entity provides greater flexibility for the stationary storage business. This is particularly advantageous when it comes to contact with customers, since the customer base for Mercedes-Benz energy storage solutions is very diverse in comparison to the automotive division. It ranges from private households to large-scale industry. “The new focus allows us to react with even greater flexibility to our customers’ requirements, and to expand our product portfolio as necessary,” said Mr. Kröger.
