Tom the Prosumer – Photovoltaics, Solar Storage and Electric Vehicles
Thanks to his photovoltaic system, Tom is a solar power prosumer – a producer and consumer in one. In our research project PVP4Grid, we are examining how prosumer concepts can contribute to increasing the share of solar power all over Europe. Learn more at www.pvp4grid.eu PVP4Grid aims at a better power system integration of PV with a focus on market integration. New management and business models to combine PV, storage, flexible demand and other technologies into a commercially viable product, will be assessed, improved, implemented and evaluated. To achieve this, detailed guidelines for Prosumers and Distributed System Operators (DSO´s), as well as policy recommendations for national and European policy makers on how to achieve the suitable regulatory framework for prosumption, will be developed. Additionally, an online tool to help prosumers to get an economic assessment of PV prosumer projects will be created.
