The Victron ESS (energy storage system) allows for almost any configuration, providing the most optimal solution for your requirements.
With Solar (or other renewable generation)
The battery storage system helps reduce bills by storing any unused generation into the batteries. The power can then be called upon when generation is lower than the consumption, reducing or even stopping energy being imported.
This can be added onto almost any existing solar PV (or other renewable generation) system.
Providing Backup Power
The output of the inverter/charger can be used as an uninterrupted power supply (UPS) for critical loads so in the event of a power-cut they remain up and running.
Grid parallel energy storage system to optimise self consumption
Wide range of available inverter/chargers: 800 VA to 10,000 VA in 12, 24 and 48 VDC
(optional) No-break UPS back-up for critical loads
(optional) Phase compensation.
- Scheduled charging from the grid possible
Built-in certified anti-islanding (not all models)
Works with any size solar PV system
Works with almost any battery size
Suitable for most battery types
Three operating modes, from basic to custom, covering both standard and highly integrated systems
Additional cost to end user from ~ £4,000 + Vat (compared to normal PV system)

|Solar Panels for renewable generation.|
|Solar Inverter to connect the solar photovoltaic (PV) panels.|
|Victron Inverter/Chargers to convert battery power to 230V AC and vice versa. Various sizes available.|
|Batteries to store the energy when it’s generated, for use when it’s needed. Any type of battery can be used.|
|Victron Colour Control GX to monitor and control the system, also enables use of the Victron VRM portal to monitor the system remotely via a browser or App.|
|Carlo Gavazzi Energy Meter to measure export/import so the system knows when to charge/discharge the battery in order to increase self-sufficiency.|
