Tesla recently announced that it has a new energy product titled the Megapack. The Megapack can act as an alternate extra energy source that is more eco-friendly than natural gas. Natural gas power is often used when a power plant cannot supply enough power. The system took inspiration from a large battery system, which is located in Australia.
The new energy product will come with software from Tesla, that can be used to operate the power system. Additionally, the system is connected to a monitoring and control system called Powerhub. The system is also compatible with Autobidder, which uses machine learning developed specifically for energy markets.
The Megapack comes as part of a concerted effort from Tesla to expand its energy storage sector.
