sonnen has been actively developing its VPP solutions in the UK over the last two years, including the Cornwall Local Energy Market project where 100 sonnenBatterie systems have been digitally networked in homes throughout Cornwall.
Kaluza is one of the world’s first intelligent energy platforms that responds in real time to the grid’s energy supply and demand balance, wholesale prices and weather data, optimising the energy use of single devices, including home heating systems and electric cars. Aggregating these devices at scale, the technology creates flexibility to help push demand away from peak times, whilst meeting device-level consumer needs and reducing carbon emissions.
Stephen Fitzpatrick, CEO and Founder, Kaluza and OVO Group said:
“We will only achieve the shift to electricity through collaboration. The aim is to give customers the greatest possible choice, and the control to adopt an electric system.
Batteries such as sonnen’s are critical to our energy security as they support a resilient, independent energy system as well as providing back up supply. sonnen has created a world-class energy storage technology and we look forward to working together to deliver an intelligent, zero carbon grid.”
