    (IEC-61850)

Teleport Connectivity
The Teleport connects to assets to unlock flexibility

Adheres to standards
Supports read-out and control over RS232, RS485, Ethernet, through protocols like Modbus, OCPP and SunSpec.

Is secure by default
Teleport establishes outbound connections only. All communication is encrypted.

Offers standardized control
A single JSON REST API to control all asset types

Responds in real-time
Response times between cloud and asset < 1 second

Integrates with your systems
Can forward messages to destinations like your own database (eg. MySQL, Postgres, Influx), message broker (eg. Kafka) or webhook.

Solar curtailment

Avoid the risk of negative electricity prices. Use the Teleport to automatically (or manually) curtail solar power based on market prices.

Wind turbine curtailment

Avoid the risk of negative electricity prices. Use the Teleport to automatically (or manually) curtail wind power based on market prices.

Battery FCR

Generate more revenue. Use the Teleport to automatically (or manually) schedule charging and discharging schedules and trade on balancing markets such as FCR.

Peak shaving

Generate more renewable energy. Use the Teleport to dynamically limit your solar production based on grid constraints taking into account battery strategies.

Demand side management

Increase self-consumption %, lower your energy costs and increase revenue. Use the Teleport to control assets to match supply with demand and trade on balancing markets.

Real Time Interface

Dutch regulations require any renewable asset above 1 MW to be able to be connected to grid operators systems for control in cases of emergency. The Telport supports this IEC-61850 Real-Time Interface protocol
