Welcome to be part of bringing Nilar to the next level as a international provider of energy storage!

Nilar is a Swedish developer and manufacturer of cost-effective, safe and environmentally friendly stationary energy storage systems, known as Electrical Energy Storage (ESS) systems. Energy storage can be used to bridge the gap between energy supply and demand in order to, for example, better make use of the potential of more erratic power generation from renewable energy sources, such as solar energy and wind power. Nilar supplies energy storage solutions for residential, industrial and commercial buildings. In the future, Nilar intends to provide solutions for infrastructure projects such as energy storage for grid support (e.g EV charging). Nilar uses a long-proven nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) chemistry with water-based electrolyte, which generates environmental and safety benefits along with a competitive price point over the life cycle of the systems. The Company is headquartered in Täby, Sweden, and production is currently carried out exclusively in the high-tech facility in Gävle, where the Company’s research and development also takes place. The Company is currently expanding the capacity of its production facility in Gävle by installing new production lines and improving the efficiency of the lines currently in place.
