With the ever-increasing demand for renewable energy, Europe has emerged as a hotbed for solar power generation. As rooftop installations continue to thrive, the untapped potential of balconies has caught the attention of both homeowners and policymakers.
The balcony power plant, also known as balcony solar systems, has gained popularity as a viable solution for harnessing solar energy in urban areas with limited roof space. It offers a convenient and compact solution for generating solar power. it can be easily installed without the need for complex structural modifications. The small size and flexible mounting options allow for placement in various locations. With its simplicity and versatility, the balcony power plant brings renewable energy generation within reach for apartment dwellers and homeowners with limited space.
To promote the renewable energy transition, many European countries, like Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, have placed significant importance on the balcony power plant, paving the way for a flourishing market. In recent years, favorable policies and incentives provided by governments in this region have further stimulated the adoption of balcony power plants.
Recently, Germany has introduced a policy aimed at relaxing restrictions on the solar balcony, which is anticipated to boost its popularity. Starting from January 1, 2024, new regulations will allow the power generation capacity of balcony solar systems to increase from the current limit of 600 watts to a maximum of 800 watts, offering people more choices.
From 10 February 2023, tenants who mainly live in Berlin can apply online for a subsidy of up to €500 per flat for the purchase of a balcony solar system. Additionally, the German government has simplified the registration process, meter installation, and other processes to promote the popularity of the balcony solar plant.
With the drive for policies and the need for renewable energy, more and more people in Europe are opting to set up solar systems on their balconies. Recognizing this trend, Dyness, a leading energy storage company, is releasing the latest balcony energy storage system, Junior Box, to meet the rising demand for the solar balcony.
"Dyness has been focusing on the European storage market for many years. " Dyness marketing director said, " The Junior Box will bring more convenience to those pursuing the efficient utilization of renewable energy to improve their energy benefits."
The energy storage system is a key part of the balcony power plant. During the day, when solar panels absorb the energy from the sun, the storage system will make sure that power is fully utilized throughout the day and night.
Junior Box is designed to solve the problem of wasted energy caused by the mismatch between the hours of photovoltaic power generation and the peak hours of household electricity consumption, thus making more efficient use of energy. It stores the renewable energy generated during peak hours and supplies power to the household anytime.
During the 10-year warranty period, a conventional balcony power plant with a full load can save customers about 130 euros a year. While, with energy storage systems like Junior Box, residents can highly increase their savings by doubling the utilization of solar energy.
Junior Box takes energy crystallization as the concept, which is reflected in the characteristics of the large capacity of small equipment and safe and efficient release during energy conversion and use.
During the design process, Dyness achieves integrated design through ergonomics, which makes the product easy to use and be installed in multiple scenarios, especially for the balcony. The independent plug-in design of the control module makes the battery and the control module independently divided, which greatly improves safety. At the same time, the Junior Box can be integrated with the existing home environment. The premium appearance design can not only be integrated with the existing home appliances and furniture but also be compatible with the placement position.
Dyness believes that the Junior box would not only provides users with a safe and reliable energy supply but also to fit perfectly into the home." We want the product to be perfectly integrated into the daily life of every household." Dyness marketing director said, "so that users can have an efficient and intelligent living experience."
