Solar, Storage & E-mobility – Smart Combinations to Unlock new Commercial Potential

Sector Coupling – The Electrical Trade is Opening Doors

As we move towards decarbonization and greater sector coupling, the worlds of photovoltaics, storage and e-mobility are becoming increasingly intertwined. This enables solar power to be used in a cost-effective and climate-friendly way, while also increasing the resilience of the energy system and improving supply security.

The combination of efficient, versatile and modular components is proving very popular in this context, ranging from smart wallboxes to energy management systems and scalable battery storage systems.

While private households are increasingly using a combination of photovoltaic installations, storage systems and wallboxes, thus making a step towards becoming prosumers, new business models are emerging for companies. This includes, for example, operating commercial charging infrastructure and using second-life EV batteries for battery storage solutions.

The diverse range of necessary components is leading to an increase in demand within the electrical trade, as installers are opening doors to these new trends.
