Combining Energy for a Greener Future
Installation of solar PV plants under 10kWp increased by 46% from July 2015 to July 2018 and is still climbing (source: BSW Solar). The reduction of feed-in tariffs has made the consumption of self-produced power one of the most important aspects of PV power. It is essential to integrate energy storage and energy management systems to continue to improve the efficiency of solar power. For this reason, VARTA Storage GmbH and Solare Datensysteme GmbH are intensifying the cooperation that they established in 2015.
Geislingen-Binsdorf, Germany, 4 October 2018: After successfully developing the intelligent charging time shift function, both companies are intensifying their cooperation. The goal is to make PV power even more appealing.
Regarding increased cooperation, Dr. Frank Schlichting, CEO of Solare Datensysteme GmbH, says, “We look forward to continuing our working relationship with VARTA Storage GmbH to ensure that PV power is used where it is generated. The two components of energy storage and energy management have to be optimally matched to each other. The professional cooperation of VARTA and SDS is based on the common goal of ‘a successful transition to clean energy.’ This is our motivation and a significant factor in our success.”
Gordon Clements, General Manager of VARTA Storage, a subsidiary of VARTA AG have a similar view: “For us, it is important that energy storage is optimally integrated into the entire PV system. We all benefit from the resulting added value, increased productivity, greater flexibility and improved usability – not just the environment.”
