Energy modelling software picked up by Sharp’s storage and CALSEIA’s solar analysis

Sharp and the California Solar Energy Industries' Association (CALSEIA) have both announced they will be working with Energy Toolbase's software - for very different applications. Image: Andy Colthorpe. Sharp Electronics will add software modelling the performance of energy storage systems made by Energy Toolbase to its Smartstorage systems, following an earlier announcement that the California Solar Energy Industries’ Association (CALSEIA) will also use the software platform. Smartstorage, a commercial energy storage product which was launched in the summer of 2014 , will now integrate Energy Toolbase software which can perform tasks including modelling peak demand savings that Sharp’s system can provide owners and operators. In the US, peak demand charges can constitute 50% of a commercial electricity user’s bills, and storage can ‘flatten the peak’ by drawing off the ba...
