      Soccer meets storage? Nissan, Eaton team up with Manchester City

      Home energy storage soon no longer will be the preserve of energy geeks and green consumers if a new sponsorship deal signed by power company Eaton and football club Manchester (Man) City has the desired effect. Announced this week, the sponsorship deal will see Eaton market its home energy storage unit — developed using second-life batteries from Nissan electric vehicles — to fans of the football club. Fans will receive targeted content about energy storage across Man City channels over the coming weeks, including via the club's website, app and at "certain moments" during games. Die-hard fans also will be able to purchase a limited-edition Man City-branded storage unit for their homes.

      Panasonic Eyes Storage Boost as Japan's Solar Incentives Wane

      The government’s scaling back of a program encouraging residential solar power has Panasonic Corp. hopeful the market for home energy storage systems is about to receive a boost. In 2019, a program designed to buy back solar power flowing from rooftop panels at above-market rates will start becoming less enticing, potentially leaving homeowners who signed up with excess power on their hands. Osaka-based Panasonic is anticipating that installations of energy storage systems combined with solar panels will rise as a result.
