Strategic partnership with BYD for highly efficient storage solutions

We are expanding our cooperation with BYD: With a new strategic partnership, we will expand our cooperation with the renowned battery manufacturer in the future. 

Thomas Garber (KOSTAL) and Julia Chen (BYD) have sealed the cooperation agreement in China.
Our goal is to jointly develop solutions for efficient energy storage for private and commercial applications and thus promote the use of renewable energies - in particular photovoltaics. It is important for us to respond to the requirements of our customers and the market.

We were already able to win BYD as a reliable partner in 2017. First of all, we expanded our existing storage solution, the PIKO BA system, with the Battery-Box HV from BYD. This modular battery solution is of course also compatible with KOSTAL's latest product - the PLENTICORE plus hybrid inverter. Both companies are working closely together to ensure compatibility of the product solutions and joint sales and marketing initiatives. "We will continue to do this with joint developments under the new strategic agreement." says Thomas Garber, Head of Product Management for Inverters and Storage Solutions at KOSTAL.

"Our Battery Box product line is very successful on the European market. In addition to product quality, this success is mainly due to strong local partners such as KOSTAL," says Julia Chen, Global Sales Director of BYD Batteries. "We are pleased to expand our successful cooperation with KOSTAL to provide both partners and end customers with a qualified solution to optimize the use of renewable energy."
