Energy management gives a real-time view of energy flows in the home on a smartphone or tablet. These include values for photovoltaic power generated as well as consumed on site. e.g. for operating the heat pump. Energy Management makes these functions available for the Vitocharge VX3 power storage unit, the heat pumps of the new Vitocal 25x-A series and heat pumps in existing buildings with Vitoconnect up to 2016.

Energy Management helps to conserve resources and save costs through energy-efficient, optimised operation of all electrical and thermal-electrical energy systems in the home. Energy Management is optionally integrated into the new electronics platform and can be made available to the customer via the ViCare app.

In addition to controlling the components, Energy Management also links up devices connected online to form a complete system, including Vitocal  heat pumps, the Vitocharge  VX3 power storage unit, DHW cylinders  and power consuming appliances. Users can then efficiently manage the system for optimum operation. This makes it possible to control multiple system components in the home in a way that conserves resources and is energy efficient.
