energyNXT controls batteries in housing complexes

Most apartment buildings nowadays have an elevator, which generally causes peak loads in power consumption, so that these complexes require a large – and therefore expensive – connection to the power grid. Many housing and homeowners’ associations could potentially switch to a smaller, more cost-efficient grid connection by using a battery capable of storing energy during off-peak times and reusing that energy at peak times. This is attractive in terms of costs and allows administrators to be extra sustainable if they were to have solar panels installed on the roof to power the battery. ICT Group often collaborates with battery supplier iwell on this type of project.

“Working with startups gives me energy. That’s because iwell sees the potential and shares our enthusiasm.”

– Eric van der Laan, Business Development Manager

Start-up company iwell supplies batteries to housing associations and homeowners’ associations. The young entrepreneurs immediately saw the added value of ICT Group’s energyNXT software platform, which provides realtime information on battery use and controls the batteries. If required, this can be combined with other equipment, such as solar panels, lights and so on. As is often the case with ambitious startups that enter the market with a lot of energy, iwell immediately included energyNXT in its proposition, without first conducting lengthy contract negotiations or extensive technical testing. A form of collaboration based on learning by doing.
