How does a smart battery system work?
Synchronising demand and supply peaks.
Control and manage your own energy locally
Take control over your own energy
Generating clean energy, feeding it back or taking it from the grid, charging electric vehicles and electrifying business processes can be done smarter. A smart battery system acts as the director of your own mini-grid. By linking internal and external data sources, the battery system monitors your energy needs and context to ensure that there is always enough power available. Things like storing your own solar energy, optimising for the best energy price or synchronising with a trip plan.
Why store energy?
The world is working to become more sustainable. That is why we are building windmills and putting solar panels on as many roofs as possible. A nice development, but it also creates challenges. After all, wind and sun are unpredictable sources of energy.
Our energy grid only works if the amount of energy generated and used is equal. Which makes unpredictable sources of energy tricky. The wind does not always blow equally hard and solar power is only available when the sun shines.
If we want to get all our energy from clean but unpredictable sources like sun and wind, we need to store clean energy at times of abundance. We use this energy at times of shortage, thus keeping the energy network in balance.
