Kyocera To Participate In Virtual Power Plant Project To Improve Energy Management

Kyocera Corporation has announced that it has been registered with the Sustainable Open Innovation Initiative (SII) as a resource aggregator for a new program to help control energy resources among Japanese consumers.

Kyocera will focus on remote management of energy supply and demand using home battery storage technologies in a new phase of virtual power in a new phase of virtual power plant (VPP) testing.

The project is part of a program implemented by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) to test a VPP utilizing consumer energy resources this year.

Since the Great East Japan earthquake of March 2011, widespread attention has been garnered for developing a stable supply of renewable energy and and promotinging energy efficiency.

Consequently, a VPP capable of remotely controlling and integrating distributed power resources, including storage batteries and renew batteries and renewable power generation facilities is in high demand. By using a highly accurate energy management system (EMS), the VPP is expected to function as an adjustment and supply source of the energy.

Project participants aim to establish a system that can optimize energy supply and demand through remote management.
