Also Energy

One System to Manage Your Integrated Solar-plus-Storage Systems

Monitoring solar and storage assets in a single platform enhances both the operational efficiency and the overall performance of solar plus storage projects. For EPCs and developers, working with a single provider to purchase and deploy the entire solution streamlines workflows and provides a single team for support during installation and commissioning. For system operators, performance engineers and asset managers, the integrated approach simplifies management efforts and enables a unified view of the system, enhancing quality and performance with end-to-end visibility and control. AlsoEnergy provides a single online destination for remote access to system data with powerful analytic and diagnostic tools, along with a single system to manage alerts, reports, and O&M job tickets for both solar and storage assets. From system deployment through long-term O&M, the AlsoEnergy Storage Solution drives efficiency with a single point of entry, minimizing errors, installation costs, confusion, and lost time logging into and learning multiple interfaces.

AlsoEnergy is working with the industry’s top storage providers to enhance user experience, enrich dashboard representations of PV + Storage, and provide a streamlined integrated solution. Our partner-based approach gives clients maximum flexibility in system planning, so you can choose system hardware from a best-in-class provider to meet the unique needs of every project. We work closely with storage providers to configure each monitoring solution for optimized accuracy and clarity, providing a common interface for our customers to ensure efficient system management over the project lifecycle.

Inside AlsoEnergy’s Storage Solution is the PowerBalance Dashboard, providing real-time KPI data for your storage system including battery state of charge, available stored energy, usage (self-consumption), utility demand, battery system status, and charge/discharge. The new PowerBalance Dashboard introduces new features like an interactive timeline graph combining data for PV production, battery production, and utility demand with adjustable time frames and granularity. This empowers a holistic understanding of the end-to-end performance of the integrated system including energy produced, energy stored, energy consumed by the system, and energy sent to the grid. PowerBalance comes complete with a user-friendly KPI display including calculations for daily cost savings based on PV production and battery usage, so users can fully understand the economic impact of solar-plus-storage systems.

Along with integrated asset management software features and optional CMMS integration in PowerTrack, the AlsoEnergy Storage Solution forms one part of the industry’s most advanced, flexible, and complete technology platform. Ongoing development of the AlsoEnergy Storage Solution is part of our commitment to serve customers on the leading edge of smart grid evolution. Along with our work to develop a DER Aggregator service for California clients working under Rule 21, this is how we are helping you sustain solar PV development while meeting the demands of the emerging smart grid marketplace.
