HTW Berlin: The best storage system under 8kWh is built by RCT Power

Berlin University of Applied Sciences (HTW) has published the results of their 2018 electricity storage survey (Stromspeicher-Inspektion 2018): The best storage system under 8kWh is built by RCT Power. A research team from HTW Berlin examined the performance data of 20 storage systems with a storage capacity of up to 10.5 kWh. The 2018 electricity storage survey thus provides a realistic view of the actual performance of the tested storage systems. Thomas Hauser, Managing Director of RCT Power GmbH, explains why the study is so important for RCT Power.
