Photovoltaic (PV) technology is considered as a very promising solution for electricity generation in the quest for combating climate change. However, several grid issues are emerging when its share in the electricity generation mix increases significantly. A promising way to combat this, is the installation of battery energy storage systems (BESS). This paper presents the project Erigeneia which aims to develop a new advanced energy management system (EMS) algorithm in order to support the increase the PV hosting capacity of the grid. The EMS will incorporate the functions of energy management, frequency and voltage regulation and power smoothing at both residential (decentralised) and community (centralised) levels. Furthermore, a battery sizing algorithm and forecasting tool will be developed. The solutions will be implemented and tested at five residential storage systems in Cyprus and at one central storage system in Turkey.
