Storage batteries for apartment buildings

PTB News 2.2021

A new research project called MELANI is investigating how several tenants in an apartment building could share a photovoltaic system and a storage battery. The Naturstrom and SMA Solar Technology AG companies as well as the elenia Institute for High Voltage Technology and Power Systems of the TU Braunschweig and PTB are participating in the project which is being funded with 2.3 million euros by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. Measurement technology, decentralized energy management of the participating tenants and billing processes are the focus.
