Optimal use of photovoltaic systems – new calculator tool now available
The new tool, the Optimal Sizing Calculator, finds the optimal size of a photovoltaic system (PV) and a batter energy storage system (BESS) in order to maximise the contributions while minimising the price of the installations. Optimal parameterisation of a photovoltaic (PV) and a battery energy storage system (BESS) is supporting the customer to save costs and be more environmental friendly at the same time.
The calculator uses typical yearly consumption profiles of a variety of consumers. But users can also use their own consumption profile to calculate their optimal parameters more accurately.
Climate Alliance is promoting the new calculator as part of the Interreg project Store4HUC that aims at improving territorially based low-carbon energy planning strategies.
