The winter holidays are almost over, so it`s the right time to get ready for the most important solar trade shows and congresses in 2017. Again Intersolar Europe end of May in Munich is a obligatory date, but there are also some other relevant solar B2B events.
The electrification of hot water generation is well underway: Heating with green electricity is not only clean, but also efficient and economical. And it creates jobs with installing companies. It is time to switch to optimized self-consumption of solar yield.
As part of a reference project in Borken, Germany, my-PV GmbH has integrated their electric hot water preparation system into an existing PV battery system created by SMA. Installing the AC ELWA-E resulted in a system with a hybrid storage that can increase self-consumption by up to 100 percent.
An intelligent power grid with a smart energy management system has been developed and successfully tested on the small Danish island Fur. It integrates heat pumps, photovoltaic systems, batteries and smart-home-installations.
The Sunny Home Manager from SMA Solar Technology AG is now able to easily integrate commercially available household appliances from Bosch und Siemens Hausgeräte GmbH (BSH) that include the EEBus industry standard and home connect functions into the intelligent SMA energy management system.
More independence, decreased heating costs and less CO2 emissions. FlowSol E from the Germany-based firm Resol has been designed for using excess current produced by a photovoltaic system. The station contains all hydraulic components, is easy to install and can be retrofitted into all heating and DHW systems.
The Austrian company my-PV presents a hybrid-extension for residential energy storage systems. The surplus PV energy is used to heat the water in a tank.
Cosy warmth from the air, while others turn on their central heating. The WPL 15 ACS air-water heat pump, designed for outdoor use, is still exceptionally efficient even at temperatures well below freezing.
