LG Energy Solution (KRX: 373220), a leading global manufacturer of advanced lithium-ion batteries, is set to launch a new residential energy storage system in the U.S. in November. The LG Energy Solution enblock S is a stackable modular residential ESS that provides tailored flexibility to meet users’ energy capacity requirements, is easy to install, and incorporates enhanced safety features.
Customers will have options to stack three, four or five battery module assemblies (BMAs) along with a specialized battery control unit (BCU). LG Energy Solution enblock S 10 has three BMAs and an energy capacity of 10.6 kWh; the LG Energy Solution enblock S 14 has four BMAs and 14.1 kWh; and the LG Energy Solution enblock S 17 has five BMAs and 17.7 kWh. Flexible enough to meet the variable energy needs of diverse households, the LG Energy Solution enblock S supports the parallel connection of two matching units for a maximum output of 14kW.
To increase their energy capacity, customers only need to make additional module purchases based on their energy consumption patterns. While using the product at an initial capacity of 10kWh, consumers can effortlessly expand the battery capacity, even during its use, by purchasing extra modules with factors like acquiring an EV influencing the decision.
Installation is swift and hassle-free, saving time and money. There are no bolts to fasten, and the connector is plug and play. Furthermore, along with the stackable design, these features make it possible for a single installer to complete the installation in just 15 minutes. The product is available in both wall-mounted and standing configurations to meet homeowners’ needs, and is suitable for outdoor settings including hills and uneven terrain.
The LG Energy Solution enblock S also passed UL9540A testing by meeting rigorous safety standards to ensure the prevention of thermal runaway fires, regardless of whether the system is installed indoors or outdoors. This underscores LG Energy Solution’s dedication to superior safety.
Later this year, LG Energy Solution will introduce enblock S+, enabling customers to acquire the enblock S battery in conjunction with LG Energy Solution’s new AC-coupled inverter as a bundled solution. Offered in two distinct configurations – backup and arbitrage – this exceptional retrofit option ensures easy installation and compatibility with any existing PV systems.
With the LG Energy Solution Monitor app, customers can conveniently track their energy consumption and production in real time. This will help them understand how much money they can save with the LG Energy Solution enblock S.
“LG Energy Solution enblock S is a versatile, expandable, and simple to install Energy Storage System (ESS),” said Matthew Unverferth, Residential ESS Sales Manager with the LGES ESS Team in North America. “To offer the highest level of product safety, LG Energy Solution enblock S was laboratory tested and proven compliant, receiving the industry standard UL9540A fire safety rating.”
