All-weather battery VIGOS supplies e-filling station and heat pump
High power for e-filling station and heat pump in short time by VIGOS
For special applications such as the supply of e-filling station and heat pump, where a lot of power is needed in a short time, the outdoor storage VIGOS from BlueSky Energy is the optimal solution.
Reinhard Kober from Frankenburg, Austria, wants to increase the self-consumption & profitability of his ground-mounted PV system. The system has an output of 35 kilowatts and supplies his tenant’s offices, production and storage facilities on the 4500 square meter company premises with electricity from solar products.
Kober’s goal is to convert its excess solar energy into heat using a geothermal heat pump. In addition, his tenants and employees will be able to charge their electric vehicles at a charging station. To enable intermediate storage of the electricity, the entrepreneur must find a suitable storage facility. It is important to him that the storage facility is accessible to his tenants and that it does not take up valuable space inside the rented premises. In addition, he does not want to have to initiate any installation or conversion measures.
As a result, a 36 kilowatt-hour VIGOS outdoor electricity storage unit from BlueSky Energy would meet the requirements. It can be installed quickly and conveniently outdoors, does not take up any space inside and does not require any further construction work.
Intelligent energy management system included in the overall system
The energy management system intelligently regulates power flows. For example, the refueling of electric vehicles can be efficiently controlled.
Vehicles belonging to field service employees are given priority and faster charging through appropriate programming, in contrast to vehicles belonging to employees who spend the entire day at work.
Prioritization between e-filling station and heat pump
If all cars are charging at the e-filling station, the management system prioritizes it over the heat pump. But the whole thing can also be reversed. For example, in winter months, it can be controlled that the storage tank first supplies the heat pump with electricity so that it can in turn maintain a constant temperature.
In the event that the PV system and the storage unit do not supply enough energy, the charging station can be throttled via the energy management system. The charging process would therefore take some time, but costs are saved because no electricity has to be purchased from the public grid.
Profit for landlord and tenant
The solar power can be sold by the landlord to the tenant at a performance price, whereby both parties profit. The tenant saves costs for taxes and grid fees. The landlord receives a better price for his electricity than would be the case if he fed it into the grid. Peak loads occurring during the day can be capped. As a result, economic efficiency is increased.
In the following video, the topic of VIGOS in connection with e-charging stations is briefly explained once again.
