To promote the flexibility of batteries, new parties are needed. A new player is the aggregator, an entrepreneur that will converge power storage in batteries, charging stations, electric cars, Power to Heat and flexible usage and sells this as a package deal.

Hybrid Energy claims to offer a battery which is safer, more circular, more modular and cheaper than the PowerWall
How incredible would it be to use your own generated solar or wind power whenever you want. Or sell if you don’t use the energy. With only the touch of a button.
Due to the special Lead Crystal® batteries, you are now able to store solar, wind or grid energy fast and safely. You can use the storage energy day or night, to run all your electric devices like TV, coffee machine, dish washer, laptop and lighting in your house. You will become less grid dependent, saving significantly on energy costs, and contribute to a greener planet. Read More
