Always keep an eye on household power consumption, as well as photovoltaic system and electricity storage system outputs: Viessmann GridBox makes this possible. It is a centralized unit that makes energy flows transparent and links electricity-based components. Thus, GridBox ideally supplements Viessmann system packages that consist of photovoltaic systems and electricity storage systems. At the same time, it serves as a basis for meeting the German Development Bank’s (KfW) 40 Plus standard and its large subsidy of up to 15,000 euros per residential unit.
The web-based Energy Dashboard visualizes the photovoltaic system’s output, the charging status of the electricity storage system and household consumption. You can also integrate a heat pump, the Vitovalor fuel cell heating device or a charging station. The homeowner thus has an overview of all connected component statuses at a glance.
Any devices that may be defective or function improperly can be identified at any time. The reporting feature provides detailed information on consumption, electricity yields and the household’s use of self-generated electricity during the previous day, week, month or year, as desired.
Starting now, Viessmann GridBox offers a new home screen for a quick and compact overview, including details such as daily trends, weather forecasts, weekly reports, CO2 examination or savings tips.
Similarly, as of now, the Box offers initial optimization functions. These include, for example, reduction of losses due to curtailment of the photovoltaic system; such losses would otherwise arise if more solar power is generated than can be fed into the public grid at the time.
GridBox can be installed easily using a router or switch (MAC bridge). Users can simply register it using the start code provided.
