The benefits of energy storage are well known; not only do batteries help smooth the intermittency of solar power but they can also help improve the economics of certain solar installations.
In the UK, the mechanics of solar are simple –
Generate the power
Consume the power
(offsetting grid costs at anything from 20p – 50p per unit)
Export the power
(at anything from 4p – 16p)
With energy storage, not only can you take your site ‘off-grid’ but you can also avoid selling your power at a ‘loss’. Additionally, an appropriately sized battery can help support your operations if you experience a power cut.
Unfortunately, ascertaining the economic benefit of a battery is not straightforward; there are dozens of variables to assess in order to determine the optimum behaviour of the storage asset.
With BeBa Energy’s ‘Be Smarter’ programme, not only can we help you better understand your electricity usage, we can also help you determine whether or not your site is appropriate for batteries without the need for dozens of sweeping assumptions
By monitoring the generation profile of your existing solar asset, the level of export, and the balance of power bought from the grid, over the course of 12 months we can produce accurate modelling to support your decision making when it comes to investing in batteries.
