SOLAR ENERGY AND ELECTRIC VEHICLES: A LOVE STORY

Be part of the transition to clean energy by choosing the best moment to charge your battery. With our products, you will enter in a community that takes care of tomorrow’s environment, and with no effort you will generate value.

RossiniEnergy connects existing energy storage systems to boost the self-consumption of your solar energy.

You will be able to participate in aggregated grid services, to support the national electrical network.

Charge when the sun shines. Stop the charge or discharge the battery, when the sun sets. Either way: reduce your electricity bills and receive payments for grid services.

Our story

RossiniEnergy was founded in 2018. However, it is since 2015, during studies at french engineering school Arts et Métiers that our project is launched.

Everything started by realising that in many countries energy storage has real economic value, because of the advent of renewable energy and the high electricity costs. However, commercially available batteries have an unacceptably long payback time. We asked ourselves: why not use existing objects, such as electric vehicles, to store energy ? and the adventure had begun.

One day, speaking with a forklift driver, we discover that it is in function only about an hour per day…

Now, an electric forklift has a large battery capacity, equivalent to an electric car, is mobile, and, in many cases, is not used for most of the day. If we were able to build a charger that adapts the charge, or the discharge of the battery, depending on the solar production, we could then transform the forklift truck in a energy storage system.

Nuvolino, the first product, was born, to be quickly installed in Italy, Belgium and Australia.

Since then, RossiniEnergy hasn’t stopped finding batteries and connecting them to the grid, to create savings thanks to solar self-consumption and grid services.

Our products

Cloudino & Nuvolino

Designed for the enterprises equipped with rooftop solar and forklift trucks, Cloudino and Nuvolino are intelligent chargers that transform forklifts in energy storage systems.

Ideal where electricity costs are high and feed-in tariffs low, their main feature is the capability of a bidirectional flow (charge-discharge) allowing to store excess solar energy in the forklift batteries,  to use it in the evening. 

In addition the system, with screen and web interface, gives updates of the status of solar and the health status of the battery. 

A first step to make vehicle-to-grid a reality and to enhance solar self-consumption.

Cavetto

The intelligent cable Cavetto is for the electric car owner who wants to participate in the energy transition. 

 

Go beyond clean transportation and help the national grid thanks to an intelligent charge rate of your car – and get paid for it, or choose to fund an environmentally conscious project.

How? Cavetto, your miniature power plant, takes care of everything by looking up the best moment to charge your car and handling its power, all in a transparent way.

Otto

Otto is a solution for the enterprises using any kind of battery powered vehicle: from electric forklifts to electric cars. By using Otto, you can be paid for helping the national grid, by stopping the charge and restarting it at the most favorable time – all with absolutely no impact on your activity, thanks to a customised algorithm. 

Let your operations help smooth renewable energy, and discover a new source of revenue for your electric machines.

PienoSole

The PienoSole chargepoint integrates all Rossini Energy skills to adapt to your enterprise premises. 

You can propose to your employees and clients a personalised, connected chargepoint: the recharge will stop and restart following the national grid needs and participate in the transition to clean energy.  In addition, if your building is equipped with rooftop solar, it will adapt the charging power to the solar, to reduce the electricity bill and enhance self-consumption.

Take a tank full of sun with PienoSole!
