When you need a little more power
With our new product extension, the “Forester”, up to 10 picea can now be connected together. This means that even higher outputs can be delivered if required. With multi-picea, you can now also supply small and medium-sized businesses with 100% CO₂-free electricity. A sanitary and heating company in Meckenheim, for example, is supplied with completely CO₂-neutral electricity from 5 picea systems.
Virtual power plant
The missing component of the energy transition
With a picea cluster, we will be able to form a “virtual power plant” in future – this will provide a solution for a missing component of the energy transition.
In concrete terms, virtual power plants will enable the following:
1. Sale of renewable heat directly to consumers
2. Sale of renewable electricity directly to consumers
3. Energy trading – renewable electricity is traded via the grid
4. Grid stabilising services
Achieving even more effectiveness together
We are working on future solutions. Our neighbourhood solutions are designed for housing estates with, for example, 30-40 homes. Each house will have a photovoltaic system on the roof and a picea in the basement.
A central hydrogen storage system will further optimise the overall costs for the housing estate.
Interconnecting the system will provide all housing units with a maximum CO₂-free energy supply.
In addition to other benefits, several houses with different roof orientations also balance out the yields from the PV system.
