AceOn showcases major new battery at Solar and Storage Live 

Leading battery and energy storage specialist, AceOn, is set to reveal a major new product at the Solar and Storage Live event next month.

The AceOn Group will showcase its new AceOn2.6 residential energy storage battery at the industry event in Birmingham ahead of the rollout of the product in the new year.   

AceOn is sharing a stand at the event with  Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) to underline its commitment to helping train a new generation of installers equipped with the skills to deliver a green revolution in the UK’s energy industry.  

The three-day event is the country’s biggest renewable energy exhibition, featuring more than 150 exhibitors from around the globe and it is expected to attract over 4,000 visitors.  

Converting the UK to renewable energy

AceOn founder, Mark Thompson, explained that AceOn2.6 represented the culmination of the Shropshire company’s three decades of experience in the battery and energy storage industry.  

Mark said: “We are immensely proud to be bringing the AceOn2.6 storage system to the market in the new year and believe it can play a really important role in converting this country to renewable energy.  

“What makes the AceOn2.6 special is that it has come about through a partnership between AceOn and leading international manufacturers in the battery and renewable energy sector. By working together, we’ve been able to develop quality energy storage at a very competitive price.   

“Using an energy storage battery like ours enables households to capture the energy created by photovoltaic solar panels and give residents the opportunity to use it as and when they need it, making their renewable generation even more efficient. This can reduce their carbon emissions and also, importantly, save money on their electricity bills. Those savings can also help lift vulnerable people out of fuel poverty.  

“The AceOn2.6 is ideal for retrofit installations, which is hugely important if we are going to convert the vast majority of the UK’s existing housing stock to renewable technology.   

“Having a great product which will significantly reduce residential carbon emissions is no good unless we have the people who can fit them – and fit them safely and correctly. That is what we have been working with MCS and our training partners to achieve.”  

The UK-designed battery will have a market-leading warranty of ten years or 7,000 cycles, a 2.6kWh capacity and installer-friendly plug and play technology. It is lightweight adaptable and ideal for retrofit and new build installations.  

Meeting with installers face-to-face

Ian Rippin, CEO of MCS said: “We are looking forward to attending Solar and Storage Live later this year and hopefully having the opportunity to meet with installers face to face.  

“We are sharing space with partners AceOn to highlight the benefits that battery storage can bring to a solar installation and to share details of our new Battery Storage Installation Standard that we will be launching at the exhibition.”
