MetaPV is the world’s first project to show on a large scale and in historically grown distribution networks how photovoltaics can support the grid actively. It shows that intelligent control of photovoltaic inverters can increase the capacity of a network for hosting distributed generation by 50%. This is possible at less than 10% of the costs of classical grid reinforcement. The report provides caveats, guidelines and recommendations on how this can be done in practice.

A large scale unique energy storage test bed was realized at Newcastle University - storing energy from the local grid and testing innovative new technologies such as super-capacitors and long life, high performance batteries. Triphase provided all power interfaces, control units, communication busses and supercapacitor units
