Produce and store your own energy. The case of SOLARWATT


Since in 2013 the German Solarwatt decided to cooperate with the electrical division of BMW, much of their efforts have been aimed at providing solutions for off grid renewable power generation. Its energy storage system MyReserve could become one of the most usual elements of the houses of the future.

SUnFLOWers project for storage in smartgrids and self-consumption


Its aim is to facilitate the use of renewable energy and distributed generation through the development of energy storage technology at a reduced sale and maintenance cost.


New storage system to control energy use in homes


The xStorage storage solution is connected to the domestic power supply and to renewable energy sources such as solar panels. It is recharged when renewable energy is available or when the electricity is less expensive (for example, overnight) and it releases that electricity stored when demand and costs are higher.
