Enel has partnered with Italian firm Aton Storage for renewable energy storage solutions for residential customers.

Enel thus continues its partnership activities with the world’s leading manufacturers of home storage systems, with the aim of expanding its product portfolio and fostering competition among market players.

For some time now, the Group has been forging global partnership agreements with the most respected and competitive manufacturers on the market.

Enel’s Innovation and Sustainability head Ernesto Ciorra said: “Thanks to our agreement with Aton we can enrich and strengthen the range of products offered to end users with innovative, high performance solutions that contribute to energy efficiency.

“Storage solutions play a key role in the development of renewable energy and electric mobility, sectors in which Enel is a world leader.”

Aton Storage CEO Ettore Uguzzoni said: “We are greatly honoured to partner with Enel and contribute the experience of our engineers and our distinctive capacity for technological innovation.

"We will strive to make the best contribution to the development and deployment of storage systems, which we believe will bring significant benefits to both families and the environment.”

The battery developed by Aton was included among the new technologies that Enel presented during the Formula E event held in Marrakech on November 12th, 2016, and the Capital Markets Day in London on November 22nd.

Enel has also incorporated the Aton storage system in its commercial offering of photovoltaic panels combined with energy storage systems, which will launch shortly.
