During Intersolar BYD Europe and FENECON signed a contract for proceeding with the successful development- and distribution-partnership. The contract volume until end of 2014 covers a total of 1000 energy storage systems of DESS-series, which FENECON is selling to PV installation companies.
Both companies were already cooperating for more than 2 years, developing the successful series of 3-phase storage systems as well as the new hybrid-systems, which were shown to the public the first time during Intersolar.
Franz-Josef Feilmeier, CEO of FENECON, is convinced of the potentials of BYD-DESS: “While most storage system manufacturers are still relying on simple balancing meter systems or charge extensive prices for technically advanced concepts, BYD is leading the market in technology as well as in total costs per kWh. Seeing that the market increasingly asks for ‘intelligent storage systems’ instead of plain ‘PV-batteries’ leaves us confident to win many more installation partners. With BYD as our partner we are well prepared to fulfill the customer’s requirements”
With a subsidy of state-owned-bank KfW, which especially prefers long-life-design and smart and intelligent DC-systems with lithium-batteries, Germany is the future core-market for sales of Distributed Energy Storage Systems (DESS) by BYD. Julia Chen, senior development business manager of BYD energy is pleased about the cooperation: “We are very happy to continue this successful and close partnership for storage systems. With a technically experienced team and the deep understanding of customers’ requirements, FENECON is the optimal partner to successfully carry out our philosophy of ‘technological leadership at affordable prices’.”
