Kyocera unveils its new Energy Management System in Munich

At the Intersolar in Munich, solar energy pioneer Kyocera is exhibiting a concept that enables the generation and storage of solar energy and heat.

The new "All-in-One"-concept by Kyocera combines photovoltaics with a lithium-ion battery, a fuel cell and an intelligent Energy Management System (EMS).

The Energy Management System regulates the energy flows between the photovoltaic plant, the lithium-ion battery, the fuel cell, and the national power grid – individually, in accordance with the generation of power and the power demand of the household.

In times of peak consumption, the stored solar power is used before power from the national power grid is used. In addition, the Energy Management System maintains the power supply even in the event of power outages.

The EMS is the result of many years of research and development. Kyocera is currently working on adapting the innovative system to the requirements of the European market.
