The number of decentralized energy generators from photovoltaics or wind power is steadily increasing. Renewable energy – unless used immediately – needs efficient integration into the grid. Future trend forecasting dictates that, energy systems will use communicative networking to control the interaction of generation, storage and consumption independently. Smart Grids make the best-possible use of the grid infrastructure, thus helping to accommodate, transfer and distribute large quantities of renewable energy. We enable the grid of the future, by ensuring our products are Smart Grid Ready.
Is your system ready for the grid of tomorrow?
Intelligent, communicative & future-proof
Fronius system solutions are intelligent, communicative, built for the future and are ready now for the intelligent energy supply of the future, i.e. they are “Smart Grid Ready”. They are an important step on the way to a future when 100% of our energy requirements are covered by renewable energy – our vision of 24 hours of sun.Find out more
With matching interfaces, Fronius system solutions not only communicate with the systems of the PV system operator, they also communicate with the energy companies and the grid operators. The data recorded by the inverter, such as the power of feeding in and the grid voltage, help it to assess the state of the grid and respond as necessary. Grid operators can access Fronius inverters in photovoltaic systems remotely and control them accordingly. If a communications link is not available, Fronius inverters can activate intelligent, grid-supporting functions independently. Both these options increase the capacity of the grids for renewable energy and contribute to grid stability.
The development of the energy supply world continues unabated. When intelligent and communicative functionalities need upgrading at a later date to meet future requirements, this will be easily done with a software update or a plug-in card. Existing Fronius system solutions are therefore not just compatible with the Smart Grids we have today, they will also be compatible with future technologies. For the system operator, this means they are extremely future-proof.
