Meet us at eCarExpo
7 February 2020
During 2019, more than every 10th car sold in Sweden was chargeable. Since distributors are being expected to lower the amount of carbon dioxide emissions during 2020, the expected number of sold chargeable cars is a lot higher. BilSweden is predicting that as much as 30% of new cars being sold will be chargeable.
As many as 84% of the people living in the inner city of Stockholm are ready to get a car run by electricity next time purchasing a new one.
This weekend the Nordic region’s only electric car exhibition is hosted – eCarExpo, it will be hosted at Friends Arena, Stockholm.
When visiting the fair, you will get to know more about the chargeable cars available on the market, you’re even able to test run cars on a 600-meter-long indoor track!
The weekend will be full of interesting events

Nilar launches new solution for the residential market
13 January 2020
Nilar launches an energy storage battery solution to meet the growing demands from the residential market. The new cabinet, which is designed for homeowners looking for a safe, economic and compact solution, is powered by 6 kWh of Nilar Hydride® batteries.
The modern household is becoming sustainable and self-sufficient, with increased use of solar power and the addition of electric cars. The new Nilar Energy Compact (EC) Home Box enables storage of excess solar energy to be utilized when demand is high or whenever it’s needed. This allows homeowners to become energy independent, by increasing self-consumption, reducing peaks in power consumption and minimising grid fee costs. The Nilar EC Home Box is a fully recyclable battery energy storage solution, that is Swedish produced with 100 percent renewable energy and is designed to last for more than 20 years.
The cabinet brings all the advantages of Nilar Hydride® batteries in a new compact and elegantesign. With water based and non-flammable electrolyte, the Nilar Hydride® battery cells offer unique safety benefits when compared to other energy storage options.
The new cabinet has already been integrated into complete home-ready solutions by energy storage solution providers Enequi AB and Ferroamp Elektronik AB. These “powered by Nilar” systems seamlessly integrate with solar panels and utilize powerful built-in control algorithms and smart software to provide homeowners with an economic, environmentally-friendly and safe solution for today’s energy needs.
“It’s great to see the Nilar EC Home Box in operation in people’s homes,” says Jan Lundquist, Head of Sales & Marketing at Nilar. “We expect to see more integrators incorporating the Nilar EC Home Box into their offerings shortly.”

Do you know the details behind our advanced battery pack?
11 December 2019
Combined with our advanced bi-polar NiMH battery technology the Nilar EC Battery pack is a safer, greener, more reliable and cost-efficient energy storage solution.
By starting our production process already from the raw material, we control the entire cost structure and performance of the battery. Unlike our competitors, we own cell production to our batteries, thus avoiding surprises and optimizing their properties. By placing our flat cells in a lasagna structure in our building block, the module, which we then build together into battery packs that can be varied in different sizes, makes us distinguish ourselves from other battery companies. Our 12-module pack, which corresponds to as many as 250 cylindrical cells, is ideal for large electrical energy storages and systems.
You can find more information regarding why our solution is a safer, greener, more reliable and cost-efficient energy storage solution by clicking on the link below.

Batteritillverkaren som går emot strömmen
3 July 2019
Trots påtagliga tecken på klimatförändringar fortsätter många tillverkare inom batteribranschen att tillverka icke återvinningsbara produkter med kort livslängd. Med tekniska innovationer vill batteritillverkaren Nilar gå emot strömmen och vara en del av lösningen för en mer hållbar framtid.
Marcus Wigren, VD på Nilar AB med ett Nilar EC Battery pack
I en värld där klimatförändringarna ständigt gör sig påminda med fallande grundvattennivåer, extrema väderförhållanden och smältande glaciärer är hållbara och långsiktiga lösningar ett måste. Användning av energilager och energi från förnyelsebara energikällor såsom sol och vind är en sådan lösning, som balanserar dagens mestadels fossila bränsleekonomier. Tillverkning av lagringslösningar är resurskrävande och därför är produktens livslängd viktig. Trots detta fortsätter många tillverkare att producera batterier med begränsad livslängd som efter ett antal år måste bytas ut mot nya. Många av dessa är dessutom inte 100 procent återvinningsbara och hamnar slutligen i stora deponier.
Nilar har valt att gå emot strömmen och erbjuder energilager med batterier som är återvinningsbara. Batterierna produceras dessutom på ett effektivt och miljövänligt sätt i bolagets egen tillverkningsanläggning i Gävle som drivs av 100 procent förnybar energi. Den senaste i raden av bolagets tekniska innovationer är en process som möjliggör att batteriernas redan långa livslängd kan förlängas markant. Genom ett samarbete med ledande forskare från Stockholms Universitet har bolagets forskningsteam utvecklat en process där syre förs in i batteriet när det är i bruk, och på så sätt förlängs produktens livslängd avsevärt. Genom innovationen kan användaren göra besparingar både ur ett miljömässigt och ekonomiskt perspektiv.
”Vår nya teknologi ger en revolutionerande möjlighet att fylla på med liv i ett redan befintligt batteri. Detta är ett stort steg framåt mot ett fossilfritt och hållbart samhälle.” säger Marcus Wigren, vd på Nilar.
