Hybrid Energy Storage Systems
Unlock the Power of Hybrid Energy Storage
A Hybrid Energy Storage System (Hybrid ESS) empowers you to harness solar electricity from sunrise to sunset and store the excess energy for use throughout the day. This dynamic package includes a hybrid inverter, offering options for both Low Voltage (LV) and High Voltage (HV) batteries, and you have the choice to add optional solar panels to the mix.

Maximise Your Solar Energy
With the Hybrid ESS, the electricity journey begins with your solar panels, directing power to the hybrid inverter and your selected LV or HV battery. Once the battery is brimming with energy, any surplus electricity seamlessly flows through a smart meter and into the grid's power lines. This ingenious setup ensures you retain a portion of the electricity, ready to power your home during overcast days, through the night, or even in the event of an energy blackout.
Selecting Your Ideal Hybrid ESS
To determine the perfect Hybrid ESS for your needs, the journey starts with selecting the right hybrid inverter capacity. The inverter's capacity in kW should match your home's maximum AC power demand, whether it's for your residence, garden office, shed, or any other premises.
Next, you'll need to decide on the power of the solar panel array using a DC to AC ratio. An example: pairing a 6kW DC solar panel array with a 5kW AC-rated inverter results in a DC/AC ratio of 1.2 (6 kW / 5 kW = 1.2). A ratio value of 1.2 typically minimizes losses, as solar panels often generate power at more than 90% of the array's rated power during over 80% of daylight hours. However, a 1.25 value can enhance project economics, especially if the project's size is determined by the AC capacity. We recommend opting for a solar panel array with a DC/AC ratio of around 1.25, and if you require guidance in making an alternate choice, please feel free to get in touch with us.
Finally, you'll need to calculate the capacity of the battery bank in kWh. This calculation is based on multiplying the power demand in kW during the longest hours from sunset to sunrise in your specific location. Once you have this value, selecting the number of proposed batteries that closely aligns with this capacity becomes a breeze.
