FIRST MEGAWATT SCALE SMART SOLAR DISTRICT
Grid Solutions provides a smart energy management solution which controls and optimizes the full range of local energy resources available to solar districts in real time through an array of flexible solutions that are compared and incorporated into the grid. The energy manager monitors information on conditions affecting network operations—such as sun forecasts, consumption patterns, and technical issues— and activates these flexible solutions based on aggregated customers flexibilities given by EDF. Electricity supply is optimized, renewable energy integration is optimized and the overall carbon footprint of the district is reduced, providing a better quality of life.
