Despite their popularity -- especially in electric vehicle applications -- li-ion batteries are not well-suited for all stationary storage applications. Many non-Li-ion battery technology providers, ranging from startups to well-established corporations, are offering alternative technologies such as flow batteries, advanced lead-acid batteries, and zinc-based batteries.
According to the report, ViZn Energy and Sumitomo Electric have become the leading vendors of non-Li-ion batteries for grid storage because of their low cost technology, the strong technical capabilities of their products, and/or their financial strength and industry experience. Additionally, Li-ion batteries have significant momentum in storage markets worldwide.

It also has an app so users can access, monitor and control their energy use from a smartphone or tablet.
Retailer EnergyAustralia estimates an average home would save around $1,500 annually when the system is combined with solar panels and a battery. A complete new system would cost around $9,000 to install or $7,000 to retrofit to existing solar panels, based on inverter modifications, and pay for itself within seven years.
The Redback Smart Hybrid Inverter has a 5 kW power output and the potential to store up to 13.2 kWh of electricity -- sufficient for 75 pct of the average home's daily energy needs. The modular design means a homeowner can start with 3.3kWh of storage and add more battery units over time.

Based on these results, we are working towards fully staffing more than 70 Tesla stores in the U.S. and abroad with dedicated Tesla energy sales people over the next two quarters.”
Back in November, Tesla acquired SolarCity for an amount of $2.6 billion – a very much discussed acquisition by the shareholders. However, some questioned the move.
