LG Chem is ranked as one of the world’s largest lithium-ion battery manufacturers with manufacturing facilities in South Korea, China and the US.
The company supplies a diverse range of energy storage products for many industries including electric vehicles, portable electronics (mobile phones) and stationary applications placing it as one of the most popular residential batteries in the market.
The large range of stationary lithium battery systems has positioned the company as one of the industry leaders in Home Solar Battery Systems and larger commercial energy storage (ESS) installations with its major product in the form of LG Chem RESU batteries.
Approaching multiple applications LG Chem offers different solutions for different markets, from utility-scale solutions to commercial and industrial and finally residential energy storage products.
∙Power Ancillary Service: to stabilize the power supply and manage load peaks (mainly intended for utility-scale purposes)
- Peak load reduction.
- Power quality improvement for renewable energy intermittency.
- Frequency regulation.
∙ Self-consumption (RESU batteries): to generate and consume power for solar PV installed households (residential solutions)
- Solar energy stored for later use at night.
- Reducing electricity bill (on-grid applications).
Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS): to back-up high profile facilities (commercial and industrial applications)
- Internet data center.
- Telecommunication repeaters & base stations.
- Hospitals and public offices.
LG RESU Battery Size & Range
The RESU or ‘Residential Energy Storage Unit’ range consists of both 48 volt and higher voltage 400 volt lithium-ion battery options.
Below are batteries planned for India:
1. RESU10H – 9.8 kWh | 48 V
2. RESU7H – 7 kWh | 400 V
Where it is used?
LG RESU batteries preferably used for Home Storage but it can also be used for commercial storage options. There is a growing number of compatible high voltage hybrid inverters including the well regarded SolarEdge hybrid inverter with which LG RESU batteries are compatible to integrate.
The LG Chem RESU is a lithium-ion storage product; specifically, it is a lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) battery. As opposed to many other manufacturers which use cylindrical battery cells LG chem use a unique Polymer ‘pouch’ flat laminated battery design (PH3) which LG claim enables much higher energy density with increased reliability and safety. Layering the battery cell sections rather than rolling or bending the cell structure reduces the likely hood of failure and enables even heat dissipation across the cell area.
