Building & scaling the fastest growing solar platform in the world
The energy industry is undergoing a rapid transformation. Switching to renewable energy sources seems to be the ideal solution. However, valuable solar energy is often lost due to inefficiencies and inadequate fault monitoring. Therefore, we have developed a software solution to monitor large portfolios of the highest diversity, better evaluate plant data, and inform operators about weaknesses and faults.
Solytic is a cleantech software company, founded in 2017 in Berlin with the vision of making the use of solar energy easier for everyone, contributing to a sustainable energy transition.
Solytic’s core product is a manufacturer and hardware-independent monitoring software solution for distributed PV systems. The technology-independent cloud solution has also been sold as a white label to major customers for several years.
Our main contribution
The software enables efficient monitoring of the performance of hundreds of thousands of smart energy homes. With a software solution for the monitoring of distributed PV systems independently of the manufacturer and hardware as the core product, Solytic monitors data from diverse technologies such as storage, charging, and home consumption. Leveraging this service enables solar installers to improve service quality, reduce lead time, and maximise profitability.

About the project
Currently, there are around 2.6 million photovoltaic plants in Germany alone. However, with rising electricity prices and increasing environmental awareness, it can be assumed that the expansion of solar energy will continue to grow significantly.
This demand, however, is met with a very fragmented supply from a range of different service providers and manufacturers. Most solar buyers are primarily interested in the yields and the degree of self-sufficiency. They want to minimize expenses and maximize returns. This is where Solytic comes in, aggregating data from large portfolios of the highest technology diversity from multiple manufacturers, summarising the information on one single platform.
Recently, solar energy has been lost due to inefficiency and lack of fault monitoring. Our challenge is to fully exploit the potential of renewable solar energy and enable the smoothest possible transition to solar photovoltaics.
Our hardware-agnostic software connects to any OEMs with third-party gateways. Before Solytic, one couldn't receive an unbiased and transparent view of all assets. If the entire portfolio is not centralized in a single portal, it is impossible to identify relevant issues early enough. Today, we use up to 64 data points from and around installations to help users understand their assets' performance better.
Simplifying portfolio supervision and improving service efficiency are key capabilities in winning the decentralised energy market of the future. Solytic has defined new market standards in these categories, leading the innovation cycle as first mover and market leader.
Core features are:
Manufacturer and technology agnostic data processing
Web interface with portfolio and site dashboards, energy data charts, and admin tools
Automated alerting and reporting, ticket tool, and data API
App launch results
connected PV sites

Solytic manages terabytes of data from millions of devices located around the world, around the clock. Within 4 years, Solytic became Europe's market leader in hardware-independent solar monitoring.

The transition to renewable energy still has a long way to go. At Solytic, we envision the future of solar energy to be fully digital, so that everyone can play an active role in the fight against climate change by improving the performance of their photovoltaics installations.
