LG Chem, already a monster player in plug-in hybrid and electric vehicle batteries, is dipping its toe into storing power in homes and businesses as well. The South Korean giant announced Wednesday a pilot project with Southern California Edison, one that will include 10-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion batteries from LG Chem, solar inverter and control gear from LG Electronics and battery charging systems from LS Industrial Systems — a multiple-technology play that brings to mind other cross-platform partnerships, such as Panasonic’s smart grid linkup with Hitachi, or General Electric’s work with the Department of Energy. I have to wonder if LG intends to link its smart home appliances to these pilot solar-battery systems — or if it plans to recycle EV and plug-in batteries for home energy storage.
