Intersolar 2023: SolarEdge Introduces Smart Operating System, Delivering Cost Savings for Homeowners
SolarEdge ONE is a 24/7 energy operating system which supports dynamic and Time-of-Use utility rates, delivering cost savings for homeowners
New system uses data-driven automation to optimize the performance of PV, storage, backup and smart home appliances, considering real-time energy prices, weather conditions, predictive analytics, charging levels and system production
Company presents open architecture for verified third party integration with home appliances such as heat pumps and EV chargers, including an integration with Vaillant also announced today
June 8, 2023 – SolarEdge Technologies, a global leader in smart energy, announced today that it will unveil SolarEdge ONE, a new energy operating system at Intersolar Europe. SolarEdge ONE makes hundreds of optimal energy decisions every day based on smart predictions of solar production, energy consumption patterns and electricity tariffs. It enables homeowners to maximize the use of excess PV, exploit periods of off-peak pricing and optimize the home’s load-control in real-time, saving energy and costs.
SolarEdge ONE was developed to overcome homeowner uncertainty around prevailing utility rates such as dynamic and time-of-use tariffs, as well as complicated import/export combinations in Europe. The system’s AI-based algorithms can respond to dynamic pricing every 15 minutes, maximizing energy export during peak market pricing periods and automatically adjusting to charge the home’s battery when electricity tariffs are lower. Optimal management of PV backup and storage also ensures more reliable and longer backup duration. The result is expected to offer opportunities for significant cost savings for homeowners on their annual electricity costs when coupled with a SolarEdge battery.
Today’s announcement also introduces the SolarEdge Home Local Controller which enables integration with verified third-party partners, controlling cloud-connected energy loads1. The Local Controller, as part of the SolarEdge Home offering, will support local EV charging integration via OCPP and Vaillant Heat pump integration via EEBUS. The control of energy flow between compatible high-load third-party appliances, combined with the inherent higher efficiencies of SolarEdge’s DC-coupled architecture, will optimize usage also during power outages. Homeowners can monitor, schedule, and control their energy use through the mySolarEdge app.
SolarEdge ONE and the Local Controller will be presented at SolarEdge’s booth (Hall B4, Stand 110) at Intersolar Europe on the 14th-16th of June. Expected to be available for both new and existing compatible SolarEdge residential products by the second half of 2023.
