In order to develop an optimal policy for the effective integration of photovoltaics (PV) and energy storage systems (ESS), the StoRES project will be testing smart solutions in six islands and rural areas. Pilot installations areas include Cyprus, Italy, Spain, Greece, Portugal and Slovenia. The objective of the pilots are to achieve a high PV penetration in the energy mix of each area, while solving all market/technical/grid/tariff issues without compromising grid stability or security of supply.
The demonstration sites with existing PV systems (3-5 kWp) and smart meters feature:
- Local weather forecasts for solar power generation prediction
- Control for all compliance household devices
- Maintain on-grid connectivity during system frequenct disturbance incidents
- Time of Use tarrifs
The pilot installation was already completed with success in Spain, whereas the rest are expected to be finalized by the end of March.
