The global energy transition is gaining speed, the solar age has already begun. It is now possible for every home owner to become independent of the local network operator and to operate his own solar power plant with energy storage and other alternative energy sources. For several years now photovoltaic systems have been combined with electricity storage all over the world. Surplus energy is stored during the day and can in turn be used at night and at less sunny days.
The reasons for purchasing a photovoltaic system combined with an energy storage system are obvious:
✓ Energy costs decrease through the increased self-consumption.
✓ Storage systems for PV-Energy are becoming cheaper and cheaper (price drop by 40%).
✓ A solar system combined with energy storage pays for itself after 6 to 9 years.
✓ Storing solar energy is a trend:
Since 2016, over 50% of photovoltaic systems have been installed in combination with energy storage devices.
The principle is quite simple: energy is usually generated during the day when the sun is shining while it is used in the evening. Electricity consumption in the household is low during the day and increases in the evening. Intelligent electricity storage devices allow energy to be used when it is actually needed.
For PV system operators it is now cheaper to use the generated solar energy by themselves than to feed it into the public power grid. Since 2011, the feed-in tariff has been below the electricity price that the consumer has to pay - therefore the demand for photovoltaic systems combined with storage is continuously increasing.
Costs play of course a major role, but nethertheless it is fact that a photovoltaic system combined with storage devices is a sensible and profitable investment in the future. While state funding for general solar systems has decreased continuously over the years, the nationwide state funding of energy storage facilities reached the core of interest.
The focus of the federal and state governments concerning photovoltaic funding today is on a controlled feed-in of solar energy and the stabilization of the public power grid through decentralized power storage solutions. The KfW program 270 was especially designed for this purpose and addresses primarily:
- new photovoltaic systems to be built with stationary solar energy storage
- existing solar systems (in operation since 1.1.2013), which will be upgraded with a solar power storage.
Please note: The nominal output of the solar system must not exceed 30 kWp and the system must be connected to the public power grid.
