Application

Renewable energy optimisation - making best use of on-site PV.


Opportunity

Dundee City Council have created the UK’s first EV charging hub which includes 22kW and 50kW chargers, PV charging canopies and energy storage. In the longer term the purpose of the energy storage will be to manage peak loads from the charging units. In the shorter term however the storage system will manage the on-site generated PV to maximise the amount used by the chargers. It will also take advantage of any time of days energy cost differences.


Solution

An E-STOR system has been installed alongside the EV chargers and PV canopies. The system will track the usage of the chargers and the generation of the PV and work to maximise the contribution the PV makes to the charging of the vehicles.

The energy landscape has shifted. The debate isn't just about how much energy we use, it's also about when we use it
