Harnessing the power of sustainable energy
Panasonic is a leading supplier of batteries offering advanced cell manufacturing and product technologies, superior quality and one of the world’s broadest lines of rechargeable batteries. Its strength lies in its commitment to R&D and innovation. Unique Panasonic knowhow has made its batteries thinner and lighter for use in devices like notebook computers and mobile phones. Panasonic batteries propel electric vehicles, power backup base stations for mobile telephones and backup power for data centers, they energize electricity storage systems with solar power generation, and are fundamental to energy-as-a-service solutions.
Out in the Nevada desert at the Gigafactory, Tesla and Panasonic have partnered to mass-produce lithium-ion battery cells for energy storage products and Tesla’s Model 3 vehicle.
Panasonic’s lithium-ion battery factory within Tesla’s Gigafactory handles production of 2170-sized cylindrical battery cells. The high-performance 2170 cell was jointly designed and engineered by Tesla and Panasonic to offer the best performance at the lowest production cost in an optimal form factor for electric vehicles and energy products.
As home solar technology reaches peak efficiency and solar panel prices stabilize at their lowest levels ever, a question has emerged: how do we handle the large amounts of power being generated from this renewable energy source?
Panasonic solar solutions can produce more electricity than you can use in a day. But without the proper battery storage system, that excess energy goes to waste. Now you can store your unused power for when you need it most. Or, sell your surplus energy back to your local utility and generate income.
That means more usable power when the grid fails, one step closer to grid independence, and a faster return on your solar investment.
