In the UK, domestic energy company Eaton has agreed a partnership with football club Manchester City to market its home energy storage unit. The aim is to encourage fans of the football club to consider investing in a home energy storage kit, which uses second-life batteries from Nissan’s electric vehicles.

When connected to the residential power supply or a domestic renewable energy source, such as a solar PV installation, the unit stores available energy, and release it when demand and costs are high. This enables homes to avoid expensive daytime or peak tariffs.
