Grid management 7.11.2016

Management of decentralised PV-battery systems

Net parity of photovoltaic electricity with the price for domestic consumers makes on-site consumption of locally generated electricity increasingly interesting. Efficient and long-life batteries will allow storage to increase on-site consumption in future. In the ”Net-PV“ project, researchers are investigated the opportunities and benefits of different operating strategies for solar battery systems and the combination of business models. ... more

Decentralised battery storage 12.4.2017

Battery System for owners and the grid

In the project PV-host scientists want to improve decentralized storage battery technically and economically. To this end, they compare solar storage that are suitable for detached houses. They want to find out which operating strategy operates useful with a memory as possible network. The storage will not only meet their own needs of the household, but also reduce feed-in peak. This is to ensure that the network can accommodate a total of more electricity from solar installations. ... more
