Sharp Corp will release a cloud-connected storage battery system that can be combined with the company's cloud-based HEMS (home energy management system) to realize efficient energy management in accordance with the user's power consumption status July 4, 2014.

When combined with the cloud-based HEMS, the system predicts the status of solar power generation for the next day based on weather forecast and analyzes the user's daily power consumption. As a result, it can reduce electricity costs by automatically controlling the charging and discharging of the battery system.
