Solar PV and Energy Storage The Time is Now

These economics can be improved by storage. According to BSW-Solar, German residential PV system owners who integrate storage can up to double the portion of electricity from their PV systems that they use. While the point at which this happens depends upon a number of factors including the size of the system and the customer’s electricity use, it is possible for such storage systems to pay for themselves by saving consumers on electricity. In addition to these decentralized solutions, Germany’s high level of variable renewable energy production is also leading to large-scale solutions. Operators of the nation’s pumped-hydroelectric storage plants have begun running two cycles per day, in response to the low daytime prices, and the European Commission is considering support for additional pumped hydro in Germany and expansion of pumped hydro in Austria.
