Battery Energy Storage Systems can help customers reduce their energy costs and provide a back-up power source for critical loads.
Battery Energy Storage Solutions (BESS) are well suited to commercial and industrial (C&I) assets. Owners and managers of commercial property can reduce their exposure to retail energy price hikes and participate in the wholesale energy market.
Voltio will review your energy usage data and tariff structure in order to assess the impact of a BESS on your asset. This process will determine the direct financial benefit and also help mitigate any potential risks of implementing a storage system.
The benefits of adding a BESS to your energy infrastructure are:
- Energy Arbitrage – Store energy when rates are low or from an alternate, cheap source of energy (like solar) and discharge when rates are high.
- Peak Demand Reduction – Customers exposed to peak demand charges can reduce their peak load and reduce network costs.
- Ancillary Services – Customers can receive direct financial benefit for supporting the stability of the grid, referred to as Network Support and Control Ancillary Services (NSCAS) or Frequency Control Ancillary Services (FCAS).
- Back-up Power – If the grid is not available, critical loads are powered using stored energy so core business operations can continue uninterrupted.
