ITP has been commissioned by Endeavour Energy to install 42 home energy storage systems in Western Sydney in a trial which aims to investigate the effectiveness of distributed energy storage in addressing the challenges faced by network operator in dealing with peak energy demand.
In return for subsidizing the cost of the system, Endeavour Energy reserve the right to access power from the battery at critical peak times throughput the two year trial period. The trail will gather vital information that will enable Endeavour Energy to roll-out a wider program of demand response using distributed storage systems.
On homes with existing PV systems we are installing LG Chem HV 9.8kWhr battery packs coupled with SMA Sunny Boy Storage battery inverters. The system monitoring and control is performed by Reposit battery management device.
