Tesla Energy Software
Tesla Energy has developed an advanced ecosystem of software to support its energy hardware products. Drawing on over 15 years in battery performance technology, Tesla has tailored its software specifically for energy products and improved performance through management of gigawatts worth of sites operating in more than 30 countries.
A common software platform powers the entire Tesla product ecosystem from Tesla’s largest stand-alone storage product, Megapack, to virtual power plants made up of thousands of Powerwalls. Beyond energy storage, Tesla software also supports solar, vehicle charging and non-Tesla assets required for operating microgrids and utility-scale power plants.
Tesla’s suite of optimization software solutions, Autonomous Control, is composed of machine learning, forecasting, optimization and real-time control algorithms used for utility bill reduction, demand response participation, microgrid control and wholesale energy market bidding. Tesla Autonomous Control algorithms automate the dispatch of energy assets to maximize economic value. Autonomous Control products driving value to customers today include: Autobidder, Opticaster and Microgrid Controller.
