The final week of testing the redox flow battery in the smart grid environment of the ACRRES testsite has started. The battery will be charged or discharged in dependance of the amount of renewable energy produced on the testsite (wind, solar-pv, biogas) and the amount of energy consumed on the site by different consumers including a consumer profile load representing 210 households. Wheter energy is stored or sold depends inn this model also on the price of energy, meaning that own produced energy will be stored if the prizes on the energy market are low or sold when the prices are high. At present the system is running stable.
