A photovoltaic unit generates the most energy during lunch hour. Unfortunately, that is exactly the time no one is at home to use it. The myPowerGrid project proposes a solution: energy storage in battery systems. This system provides the electricity to be used when it is actually needed. The subscribers get some insight into the energy balance by accessing the myPowerGrid online platform. Diverse graphics display, among other things, energy and generation levels as well as storage capacity.
Although the use of these battery storage units substantially increases the self-consumption and self-sufficiency rate, it does not provide relief to the power grid.
