Fast reaction means more self-consumption and lower electricity bills
Some systems react much more slowly to demand, so that power initially comes not from the battery storage system, but from the grid. This delay is also apparent when power is no longer required. Some batteries are too slow to switch off, so stored electricity instead flows into the grid. That means lower self-consumption and increased electricity bills.
For appliances running during the day, solar power harvested directly from the roof can be used. As soon as appliances stop demanding power, MyReserve begins charging. When power is again required, MyReserve immediately stops charging so that solar power can be sent directly into the building. Result – increased self-consumption of solar power. MyReserve can be 20 times faster to respond than other batteries, supplying electricity after 0.35 seconds.
As an added benefit, experts say this efficiency makes MyReserve increase the self-consumption of the end user. A study by the University of Applied Sciences in Berlin found that the slower reaction speed of ordinary batteries led to average losses of 2,000kWh over 10 years.
