This is both obvious but also exciting. Long ago, when I was Director of a renewable energy business, we saw home-owners and businesses that installed solar panels, changing their habits to put on washing machines on sunny days, and maximise their self consumption. Now of course that is much easier with home energy storage, as provided by Hyperion clients like sonnen. With the rapid rise of EV's, and home charging, this solution saves a lot of money, but also helps solve grid scale issues.
The half-hourly price tracker marketed as “Agile” has been running with about 150 customers on a trial basis since March. Users with their own EVs reduced their peak consumption by 47%, according to a report from Octopus. The average consumer could save about 188 pounds ($243) a year on their energy bill. The tariff could also reduce the billions of pounds needed to upgrade the U.K’s aging energy networks by decentralizing demand through a smart grid. It will also help support the EV market, Octopus said
