Strategic partnership with BYD for highly efficient storage solutions

We're expanding our collaboration with BYD: In future, we will collaborate with the well-known battery manufacturer even more as part of a new strategic partnership.

Thomas Garber (KOSTAL) and Julia Chen (BYD) have approved the collaborative agreement in China.

Our aim is to work together to develop solutions that allow efficient energy storage both for private and business applications and, as a result, to promote the use of renewable energy and photovoltaics in particular. It's important to us to respond to the customer and market requirements.

We were able to gain BYD as a reliable partner in as early as 2017. First, 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 the latest product from KOSTAL: the PLENTICORE plus hybrid inverter. The two companies work closely together to ensure that their product solutions are compatible and to ensure joint sales and marketing initiatives. We will continue to create these joint developments as part of the new strategic agreement", says Thomas Garber, Head of Product Management for Inverters and Storage Systems at KOSTAL.

"Our battery box product line is very successful on the European market. As well as the products' quality levels, their success is mostly down to our strong local partnerships, such as KOSTAL," says Julia Chen, Global Sales Director of BYD Batteries. "We're pleased to expand our successful collaboration with KOSTAL so that we can provide both partners and end customers with a qualified solution to optimise their use of renewable energies"
