8 Star Energy, Evergen partner up on batteries

Evergen and 8 Star Energy have entered into a partnership that will see the two organisations become exclusive optimisation software partners.

8 Star Energy is the sole licensee for Energizer and Eveready branded products in the portable power, containerised and home battery energy storage system categories, and has been appointed as the sole global provider of the new Energizer batteries into 56 countries.

After extensive market exploration, 8 Star Energy has selected Evergen as its exclusive optimisation software partner, with every Energizer battery deployed in commercial and residential sites to be optimised with Evergen Energy Intelligence Software.

The collaboration brings together complementary interests and capabilities of Evergen and 8 Star Energy to develop paths to market for Energizer distributed storage systems and software in Australia and overseas and supports both companies’ global expansion plans. As part of the agreement, Evergen will become the default provider of optimisation, virtual power plant (VPP), microgrid and other related software for distributed storage assets sold under the Energizer brand.

“The Energizer brand has a strong presence worldwide and this partnership is aligned with the Evergen global strategy to have our Australian software distributed alongside a household name. As international energy markets evolve, battery storage technologies and the software that enables and controls them will become integral in the energy landscape of the future,” said Ben Hutt, Evergen CEO and Managing Director.

Clark McKeon, CEO of 8 Star Energy, said, “Our partnership with Evergen demonstrates the scope of our collective innovative technologies and services we provide to customers that deliver cost savings and efficient management of their energy consumption. As the world’s energy requirements increase and the switch to renewables is fast becoming the norm, people are demanding clean energy that suits their individual needs. We are focused on delivering robust and reliable systems that will help customers increase the value of their power.”

Evergen’s intelligent energy management system increases the performance of single dwelling solar and battery systems and enables operation of virtual power plants (VPP) and microgrids, where fleets of systems are orchestrated and optimised together with the energy networks, not just in Australia, but in a growing number of international markets.
