Panasonic’s residential storage battery system delivers a double revolution for New Zealand’s energy sector, bringing new flexibility to distributed energy and lower energy costs to consumers. To the rapidly expanding energy industry, Panasonic brings a strong heritage in Lithium-ion battery technology. With experience spanning more than 80 years, we are able to deliver industry-leading reliability, quality and safety.
Delivering Value to Retailers
Panasonic’s residential storage battery system allows retailers to reduce demand during peak times and provide savings to the consumer. In supplying the storage battery system, retailers can better manage the time of use during peak periods and offer longer term contracts and savings to the consumer.
Delivering Value to Distributors
For energy distributors, demand response power discharge supports grid stability through peak cutting. Panasonic’s storage battery system offers distributors cost savings on capital investment for network upgrades, including transformers.
Delivering Value to Consumers and Small Businesses
New Zealand consumers and small businesses want to invest in sustainable energy sources, but they are dependent on energy being available on demand. Panasonic’s storage battery system can shift clean solar energy for use during the evening peak period, reducing overall energy costs.
Delivering uninterrupted clean energy
By storing solar energy in the residential storage battery system, clean energy can be used around the clock to reduce consumer’s electricity bill and support residential customers by supplying critical electricity backup needs during blackouts.

Maximise Self-Consumption Mode
The Lithium-ion storage battery works in harmony with PV generation. By storing excess electricity in the storage battery during the day, clean energy can be used around the clock, even after the sun goes down. It also helps reduce the consumers’ electricity bill.
Programmed Charge or Discharge Time Mode
The consumer can set the charge / discharge time on the Lithium-ion storage battery system directly. The battery will be charged or discharged only during the designated time.
At other times it will not be charged or discharged. From the storage battery system there is no excess electricity to the grid.
When a black out happens, the Lithium-ion storage battery system can provide the charged electricity to some particular house loads through the specified plug. The minimum remaining battery capacity can be set.
Clean energy on demand
Panasonic’s residential energy storage technology represents a new frontier in energy usage. We’re changing the equation to develop an efficient and environmentally responsible energy source that meets the demands of consumers, small businesses and utilities alike.
Consumer and small business benefit
The stand-alone system optimises the use of local energy generation from PV and customers benefit with a reduced energy bill.
Panasonic’s residential storage battery system is good news for energy distributors and retailers, reducing grid infrastructure expense, better management of energy usage during peak times, and offering longer term contracts and savings to the consumer.
