In cooperation with the power utilities in Speyer (SWS), we are building a decentralized system of photovoltaic plants and battery storage units, consisting of approximately 120 separate installations. To construct the PV park, SWS is offering to install photovoltaic units on the rooftops of the residents of Speyer. These storage devices are then combined over a platform to create a virtual large-scale battery, which can be controlled via an interface to the SWS control station. This establishes the cornerstone of the local green power supply.
The system also offers other business advantages, for example:
- Peak shaving
- Balancing energy avoidance
- Local voltage stability
- or even participation in the regulatory energy market
