Are Commeo battery systems also used in the private sector (home storage systems)?

No. Commeo battery storage systems have been specifically developed for industrial applications. Industrial storage systems have placed considerably higher demands on charging and discharging rates. Used as home storage systems, the Commeo energy storage block would simply be underutilised!

You can find some of the applications for which the Commeo battery system was developed here:

Where are the Commeo energy storage blocks produced?

Commeo products are produced and developed in Wallenhorst, which is near Osnabrück. The majority of the individual components are also manufactured in Germany and Europe. In addition, Commeo has several components processed in the workshops of Heilpädagogische Hilfe Osnabrück e.V. (an organisation that provides special education in Osnabrück).

What is Commeo’s position on lithium-ion batteries and environmental protection?

This topic can be considered from two points of view. On the one hand, lithium-ion batteries can help protect the environment by using them for the temporary storage of the energy generated by photovoltaic and wind power plants. This means they do not have to run “empty” when the grid capacity is overloaded, and can no longer absorb any more electricity. On the other hand, the Commeo energy storage blocks have been developed in a way that usually allows them to be dismantled into their individual component materials, therefore greatly simplifying the recycling of the individual components. Commeo will also actively participate in the optimisation of “Made in Germany” cell technologies within the scope of the battery cell research factory.

Safety

Are Commeo battery systems dangerous?

When handled correctly, Commeo battery systems are not dangerous.
Commeo has implemented a multi-level, redundant security system in the energy storage blocks and systems. Due

  • to a robust aluminium housing
  • a relay
  • a safety fuse
  • an intelligent battery management system (BMS) that Commeo developed itself and which monitors temperature, voltage and other safety-relevant parameters and counteracts them if necessary
  • a control unit

and other features relevant to safety, Commeo products are state-of-the-art.

Our team will be happy to answer any questions you may have:

Which IP code do Commeo battery systems feature?

The Commeo energy storage block, along with the Commeo energy storage cabinet, feature protection class IP20 when set up as a free-standing system. However, the Commeo energy storage rack can also achieve higher protection ratings with the corresponding standard accessories.
