Eguana receives Mercedes Benz Energy endorsement for home storage

Calgary, Alberta, CANADA

CALGARY, Alberta , June 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eguana Technologies Inc. (TSX-V:EGT) (OTCQB:EGTYF), one of the leaders in power conversion and control systems for distributed energy storage, today announces its long standing partner, Mercedes Benz Energy GmbH (“MBE”), endorses Eguana’s Evolve home storage system to address the global market and work directly with MBE distributors.  

Mercedes Benz Energy recently announced it will choose select partners for EV infrastructure including home storage and Eguana is pleased to receive their acknowledgement. Residential energy storage is an important part of a complete e-mobility ecosystem and MBE will recommend that distributors source residential energy storage products directly from Eguana.

“Under the original private label agreement all systems were destined for the Australian market, however with this transition Mercedes has opened additional markets for Eguana’s Evolve and other product lines,commented Justin Holland, Eguana Technologies CEO. “MBE sales worked with us to transition additional distributors in Australia, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. We are very excited to see our products move into this rapidly expanding distribution network.”

As part of the transition the Company has received a full engineering report and endorsement of its Evolve product from Mercedes Benz Energy detailing all test and field results. “We ran the Eguana through 6 months of intense testing to ensure reliability and functionality,” stated Gordon Gassmann, Chief Executive Officer at Mercedes Benz Energy. “We are confident the product is right for the markets and are happy to transfer our distributor relationships directly to Eguana.”

Eguana has since added multiple distributors across noted regions and as a result expects sales projections to increase as additional distributors are contracted. Initial product roll-out, which was planned to begin in June, is expected to take place throughout the fourth fiscal quarter. The Company has agreed to cancel the existing supply agreement in favour of the expanded global reach working directly with key distributors.
