– We look forward to working closely with Enequi to develop customized and cost-effective solutions based on Nilar’s batteries and BMS. Enequi has both the technical knowledge and the abilities required to create integrated solutions, where our batteries and Enequi’s energy management system work together optimally, says Erik Oldmark, CEO of Nilar.
Enequi’s QuiPower platform gives residential and commercial property owners access to clean energy through intelligent energy storage and energy control, where well-selected hardware is combined with software for energy management and optimization. By entering a long-term strategic partnership with the battery manufacturer Nilar, Enequi wants to meet customer’s needs for safe, reliable, and sustainable solutions.
The first event within the partnership is the delivery of 800 batteries with BMS from Nilar to Enequi, for installation in 100 QuiPower Storage units. In total, the order comprises an energy storage capacity of 1.15 MWh and an order value of SEK 10 million. For Enequi, it will be the starting point for a European expansion where matters such as safety and sustainability become even more crucial.
