GPC Europe transforms digital meter into smart battery simulator

GPC Europe launched the GPConnect at the end of August. This smart battery simulator tells solar panel users exactly how much energy they are taking from the grid and putting back at any given moment, and how much of it they can retain if they install a certain battery capacity. This is very useful because new Flemish solar panel owners will no longer be able to use the reversing electricity meter from 2021 while the prosumer rate will also disappear over time.

 

This is how GPConnect works

Thanks to GPConnect, customers can now easily detect equipment that wastes electricity and therefore opt to operate this equipment at cost-effective times, such as when the solar panels are producing surplus energy. At the same time, they can also use a simulation to identify the ideal battery system so they no longer have to pay too much for a system that is too large, while not wasting money because the system is too small. The simulation focusses on electrical storage and thermal storage. Smart controls for heating hot water can be made cheaper than installing a battery, and storage capacity can be quickly increased to 5 kWh.

On Wednesday 29/09, GPC got a nice 2nd place with the GPContol at the Innovation Award at the SolarSolutions Int. in Haarlemmermeer. In short, it helps you heat your boiler when the solar panels are producing energy.

 

The GPControl measures, via the P1 port on the digital meter, the energy injected into or taken from the grid. If there is a surplus of solar energy, an electric boiler is fed, controlled by the GPControl.
