42 households in an urban neighbourhood participate in a real life test where in-home-battery systems are combined with solar production, a smart in-home system and USEF. The aim of the test is to maximise the self-consumption of the solar production combined with decreasing the impact of the solar produced electricity on the local electricity grid.
Status. Project began in Oct15 and the USEF implementation went live 6 months later. Testing topics included the optimised use of self-produced solar electricity, peak reduction by use of storage as well as customer response on this new energy system. Results indicate that provided enough flex is offered, the system works as hoped.
