a turning point
The year 2022 has marked a before and after as far as the price of energy in general and electricity in particular is concerned, with increases perceived by many customers of up to three times what was expected. Paradoxically, never before has so much energy been produced through renewable sources, to the point where this 2023 may reach the turning point. It will be the point at which there are, in a systematic way, time slots in which the participation in the market of marginalist sources is not necessary.
We are approaching a digital price scenario, very low value in solar time and a high price at sunset. To protect themselves from these fluctuations, the thousands of self-consumptions made have an ally, the accumulation of energy. Save your own production during low-price hours to consume it at peak hours and thus avoid its high cost.
The massive deployment of fast and ultra-fast charging solutions cannot wait any longer and therefore solutions must be sought to supply the new charging centers associated with the main arteries of the country with local energy. The accumulation of energy can allow conditioning the necessary power for this deployment of new infrastructure.
An intelligent energy distribution system is based on its digitization, demand management and energy accumulation capacity to be able to cover demand peaks or absorb generation surpluses depending on the availability of resources and consumption requirements.
The self-consumption boom is not only exploding at an industrial level, but is also a key point for the domestic sector. In addition, the large increase in the sale of electric vehicles creates the need for systems that can make the most of the self-generated solar surplus in homes to dedicate them to recharging one or more electric vehicles.
To successfully solve this situation, we will show our next launch: Genion One. This device is a home manager for self-consumption electric vehicle charging that allows the user to select the most efficient way to simultaneously charge up to two electric vehicles. Genion One allows you to use only solar surplus for recharging, therefore at zero cost, or combine this self-generated energy with your own grid to ensure maximum charging before leaving home.
The equipment has an intuitive webapp to configure the tariff profile from any smartphone, the contracted power to avoid tripping due to excess consumption and a new hourly balance system, unique in the Spanish market, which allows the user to balance network consumption with photovoltaic generation, whenever it exists, in the same hour, to be able to charge electric vehicles ensuring the lowest possible cost, even at zero cost depending on the amount of energy generated.
As complementary elements to solutions for self-consumption, energy storage and recharging of electric vehicles, we will exhibit solutions for the protection of alternating and continuous equipment, as well as analyzers for monitoring energy consumption in both AC and DC, in addition to the new software for Line-EDS-iMonitor monitoring where we can create simple dashboards to show on a screen the evolution of consumption imported from the network, the energy generated by our photovoltaic system and the status of each charging point integrated into our installation.
