Tesvolt, a manufacturer of power storage systems for industrial and commercial operations, offers its distribution partners an augmented reality app for a virtual reality sales experience. Using the highly innovative technology of augmented reality, storage professionals can take advantage of various scenarios to vividly and memorably illustrate to their customers the advantages of power storage systems, for instance self-consumption optimization, peak shaving and off-grid connectivity.
“With the Tesworld AR app, we offer our partners a completely novel sales experience,” says Daniel Hannemann, who co-founded Tesvolt together with Simon Schandert in 2014. “They can rely on an innovative and entertaining technology to guide their customers through a new world of electricity storage right before their eyes.”
A selection of five scenarios
In the app, distribution partners first choose from an array of five application scenarios the one that suits them best. For instance, they can select a logistics hall where the rechargeable batteries in fork lifts are charged at night using stored solar power in order to increase self-consumption. There is also the option of a car dealership which practices peak shaving using charging stations, as well as a poultry farm where the storage system is used for back-up energy.
In this virtual world, distribution partners can also demonstrate the specific benefits of energy storage: how electricity costs can be cut using battery storage systems, how self-consumption of self-generated electricity can be increased, how expensive peak loads can be shaved, for instance by installing charging stations, how electricity can be used even without a grid connection and how energy storage systems can be used for grid stabilization.
“If we want to keep popularizing power storage, then we and our partners need to be working innovatively in accordance with the state of the art all the way down the line, including in distribution. That’s our motto,” Hannemann says in regard to the latest development.
Tesvolt’s free augmented reality app can be installed on the latest generation of Apple devices (iPads and iPhones). To access the various application scenarios, distribution partners can download QR codes from the Tesvolt website or contact Tesvolt directly.
TESVOLT specializes in commercial battery storage systems. The innovative company from Lutherstadt Wittenberg produces storage systems with the most modern battery cells: prismatic lithium cells from Samsung SDI based on nickel-manganese-cobalt-oxide. TESVOLT storage systems function just as well at low voltage as at high voltage, and can be connected to all energy producers: sun, wind, water, biogas and combined heat and power — on-grid and off-grid. The TESVOLT commercial storage solutions are manufactured in the first Gigafactory for battery storage systems in Europe at the Wittenberg location.
TESVOLT was awarded the German Entrepreneur Award in 2018 in the category "Rising Star". For the off-grid power supply of an avocado farm in southwestern Australia, TESVOLT received the "The smarter E award" in the "Outstanding projects" category as well as the International Award for Rural Electrification (ARE).
