Take control of your own energy
Generating clean energy, feeding it back or taking it from the grid, charging electric vehicles and electrifying business processes can be done smarter. A smart battery system acts as the director of your own mini-grid. By linking internal and external data sources, the battery system monitors your energy needs and ensures that there is always enough power available. Functionalities like storing your own solar generation, optimising for the best power price or synchronising with a route plan.
Why store energy?
The Netherlands are doing their part working towards a sustainable future. That is why we are building windmills and are covering as many houses as possible with solar panels. A great development. however, it does come with its challenges. Wind and sun are energy sources that can be very unpredictable.
Our energy grid only functions when the amount of energy generated is equal to the amount of energy used. This makes unpredictable sources of energy very difficult to balance. The wind does not always blow, and solar power is only there when the sun shines. If we do not act now, the lights in the Netherlands might literally stop shining in a few years.
If we want to get all our energy from clean but unpredictable energy sources like wind or solar power, then we need to store clean energy in times of excessive generation. We use this energy at times of shortage, thus keeping the energy grid in balance. Cube stores energy, making it a crucial link in the chain that is a sustainable energy supply.
