EnSync, a developer of innovative distributed energy resources (DERs), business models and controls, announced that the company will feature an interactive livestream at Intersolar North America of a system running the EnSync Home Energy System (EnSync Home), which includes solar, energy storage, power electronics and an Internet of Energy control platform.
Booth visitors will be able to clearly visualize different optimized settings and the automatic energy flow of an intelligent distributed energy resource in real-time across five assets, including the utility grid, a simulated home load, solar generation, the True Peer-to-Peer DC-Link and the Wisconsin-based EnSync Home system. They will learn how the system’s DC-link connects individual residential units in a multi-unit property complex to enable peer-to-peer energy exchange, improves solar energy economics and optimizes energy utilization.
“The innate desire for greater individual control and flexibility has created megatrends across industries like ridesharing and hospitality thanks to new technologies and business models that can deliver on making it a reality,” said Brad Hansen, president and CEO of EnSync Energy. “Residential energy is poised to be another market to experience that massive disruption as homeowners seek energy independence from the utility grid. EnSync will play a vital role in driving and capitalizing on this megatrend. Visitors to our booth can learn how the EnSync Home Energy System changes the game for residential energy, whether for an individual home or a property complex with several units connected on our DC-Link.”
The livestream will educate around energy management to achieve grid independence or comply with other policies and incentives. For example, the system will be set to meet the federal Investment Tax Credit requirement that passes on tax credits for storage systems that are filled 100 percent with renewable energy. Throughout the conference, the EnSync Energy team will also feature simulated displays of how the system automatically reacts for optimized energy management during special events, including:
- High in-rush events during off-grid operations
- Exporting to the DC-Link when household load is less than photovoltaic production and batteries are fully charged
- A loss of the grid and reconnecting to the grid after a blackout
- Storing and using backup power for mission critical needs
Intersolar North America will take place on July 10 through 12 in San Francisco. Conference attendees can visit EnSync at Booth 8119 to see and interact with a graphic user interface and the live-streamed data. On the main dashboard, the interface will show the real-time flow of energy between the five assets. Users can click on a specific asset to see its activity over time and how it compares to other assets. EnSync’s booth will also feature various hardware components of the EnSync Home system, including the power electronics and battery enclosure.
