Storing energy is one of the keys to success in implementing our vision of 24 hours of sun. Solar energy has great potential, but to make full use of this potential, it also has to be available all the time – day and night, in summer and in winter. At the same time, we have to be able to integrate more and more decentrally generated solar energy into our grids. To meet these requirements, we need powerful and efficient storage systems. With more than 70 years of experience in battery charging technology, Fronius has the know-how and expertise to develop innovative solutions for photovoltaic systems as well.
Decentralised energy storage brings significant added value – both for owners and for the grid. The owners of the storage unit can maximise their self-sufficiency by using self-generated solar energy, which increases the cost effectiveness of their investment. At the same time, they improve the utilisation levels of the public grids, as more locally generated energy can also be used directly at source. With the right legal framework, decentralised storage can also provide an extended benefit that is helpful to the system. For example, it allows energy to be taken from the grid at specific times, stored and then made available again later on. This is beneficial to energy management for the grid operator and allows the owners of the storage units to participate in the electricity market, thereby increasing the profitability of their storage system.
