An assessment of the possible use of community batteries as an alternative to small batteries associated with photovoltaic power plants installed behind the meter
The study aimed at the possible use of community batteries as an alternative to small batteries installed together with (rooftop) photovoltaic power plants behind the meter. A discussion on the possible use of flexibility in the low-voltage network for other services was also a part of the outcome. The contents in brief:
Description of the concept of the community battery (legislation, impact on the operation of the distribution network)
Conditions of feasibility for the possible use of the community battery
Operation simulation and economic model
Discussions of other relevant battery applications at low-voltage level
Draft plan for a pilot project
