To increase solar energy’s share of the energy mix, SolarEdge is driving the transition from centralised to distributed energy networks with its innovative grid services solution. This solution enables cloud-based, real-time aggregative control, management and reporting of a pool of distributed energy resources, such as PV, storage, and electric vehicles, for the creation of virtual power plants.
Distribution utilities can defer building costly and often underutilised network infrastructure by leveraging pooled energy in virtual power plants to overcome local supply shortages.
Protect energy retailers from energy price peaks by facilitating access to stored energy and interruptible loads through automatically discharging energy or removing demand, to reduce costs during peak price hours.
Pool PV, batteries, and EV chargers to instantly and automatically modify generation or consumption, helping network operators to stabilise grid frequency and voltage.
Managing the complex network of distributed energy generation requires sophisticated management platforms such as SolarEdge’s grid services, which may be implemented as follows:
As PV and storage continue to proliferate around the world, energy production is transitioning from a centralised system to a distributed network model, where energy is produced close to the location in which it is consumed and stored.
This model creates an opportunity for new interconnected and decentralised energy networks offering improved grid reliability, services, stability, and costs.
This provides benefits to all relevant stake holders:
