Project Description

The eStore project will demonstrate the real-world operation of Solo's distributed battery storage network concept. Led by Solo Energy, in partnership with DP Energy and ESB Networks, the project involves installation of behind the meter battery storage at a number of locations on a rural network. The selected locations include both commercial and domestic sites, with PV, a wind turbine and heat pump. Loads will be monitored and the effect of different battery operating regimes examined. One of the primary objectives of eStore is to identify and overcome connection issues associated with distributed storage.
