Philosophy

The project includes a battery energy storage system to ensure optimum operational performance of the PV plant. Fulcrum3D’s innovative CloudCAM cloud coverage predicting technology is also installed. Thanks to these technologies, the plant forecasts its output and variations in solar irradiance by charging and discharging the storage system and minimising the impact to the grid.
