UC6 – Management of battery systems for Node capacity increase


Make use of local batteries to enable higher consumptions without increasing contracted power and infrastructure investment.

Partners involved
Pilots for demonstration
Interoperability tools
Client/Server, EMS, batteries in buildings, EV chargers (up to 44kW total up to 22kW/per EV)
New EMS HESS systems:
EMS from HESS for hybridization, coupled with HEMS


The objective of the Use Case is to take advantage of distributed storage in buildings, to allow increased consumption by increasing node capacity (while avoiding investment), without the need of increasing the contracted power in an energy community and avoiding installation costs.

This will be accomplished with the use of the electric vehicle chargers in the demo site. In an infrastructure where there is no ability in terms of power (contracted or physical limitations) to supply a given set of vehicles simultaneously, the batteries will allow an increased power service due to the battery’s installation next to the chargers.

The batteries will be charged (topped up) in valley hours. When there is higher need for power, the batteries would be requested to enter as a reserve do make up/compensate for the remaining power needs. An energy monitoring system will recognize when the consumption is close to the contracted power limit and will trigger the entering of the batteries to compensate for the rest. Interoperability his hence a crucial aspect to ensure as well as the interaction with the connected data space.
