Powerhub was first mentioned as part of Tesla’s launch of the Megapack, its biggest stationary energy storage product to date.
Tesla describes the product:
“Powerhub is an advanced monitoring and control platform for managing distributed energy resources, renewable power plants and microgrids. Powerhub is deployed and in use across Tesla’s fleet of over one gigawatt-hour of operating commercial sites. Customers ranging from facility managers to power plant operators use Powerhub to maximize operational efficiency, uptime and asset value. Powerhub covers all common elements of Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems and offers standard customizations to meet the operational needs of small, large and virtual power plants.”
Here are a few screenshots of the Tesla Powerhub interface:
With Powerhub, Tesla customers can manage many different energy assets including solar, storage and select non-Tesla assets (generators, breakers, transformers) on a single interface.
On top of providing data, Tesla says that customers can also use Powerhub to control their assets and perform tasks like:
- Setting quiet hours for microgrid operation
- Configuring preferred set points for frequency/watt control
Scheduling future dispatch for providing aggregate demand response
Today, we take a look at Tesla Powerhub, a lesser-known Tesla energy product to monitor and control energy assets at a large scale. Tesla’s well-known energy products are the Powerwall, Powerpack, Megapack, solar panels and solar roof. Earlier this year, we also learned of Autobidder, Tesla’s platform to autonomously monetize battery assets.
