E-Mobility in Polysun 10.0

9.2 Press Release ImageWinterthur, 28 June 2017The Swiss software maker Vela Solaris has just released a new version of its Polysun planning software. The new Polysun release 10.0 now enables users to integrate combinations of e-mobility with photovoltaics or co-generation units. It also allows for predictions on the economic viability of such concepts.

Ever rising numbers of new electronically powered cars and bikes on the streets have led to increasing discussions about e-mobility in the renewable energy sector, which increasingly factors e-mobility factored into its planning. The possibility to store excess solar power produced by photovoltaic systems around midday and to use it later on for e-mobility give rise to attractive new possibilities to optimize one’s own consumption of electric power. This also leads to an increased profitability of the entire system.

Polysun now lets you simulate these advantages of the integration of e-mobility. You can now show your customers and intelligent and comprehensive concept including

  • the optimization of the self-consumption ratio
  • volatile electricity tariffs (determined at energy exchanges) are modelled in
  • feed-in of electric energy to stabilize the electric grid (balancing electricity)
  • leading to an increase of the profitability of photovoltaic storage systems.
