DC grids for integrating PV, storage and electric vehicles in buildings

Ferroamp has developed the EnergyHub system, comprising products for integrating solar cells, energy storage and electric vehicle-charging in a local DC nanogrid within a building. These innovative products are based on advanced power electronics and result in increased flexibility and safety as well as lower losses. All EnergyHub systems are connected to a cloud portal with live energy data analysis for energy efficiency measures.Ferroamp solution

The need

The energy industry is transforming at an unprecedented pace. Solar cells, energy storage and electric vehicles that were exotic technologies a decade ago are now viewed as mainstream in many markets today. This rapid development calls for future proof systems that can easily adapt to fast changing requirements and integrates them in a cost effective way.

The solution

Ferromps EnergyHub system integrates solar cells, energy storage and electric vehicle-charging on a high voltage DC grid within a building. The system is also connected to a cloud-based energy management system.ferroamp energyhub 2

The value proposition

The EnergyHub system brings several unique advantages:

  • A high voltage DC grid enables a future proof system that can easily be expanded as requirements change.
  • ACE technology reduces grid fees and enables faster EV charging.
  • One-second resolution energy data enables detailed energy analysis tools.
  • Safe and flexible integration of energy storage.
