Battery energy storage systems (BESS) have started to be part of the photovoltaic (PV) system design to allow the further penetration of PV into the grid. This study deals with the sizing (power and energy capacity) of a BESS for residential households which are represented by a typical load consumption profile, they have electrical air conditioning and electrical water heating (water boiler) resembling a common residential house in Cyprus. The BESS sizing is done considering the local energy consumption profile and the energy efficiency class of the house and the water boiler. The BESS is sized in order to achieve zero PV grid export and to increase self-consumption.
