Lower power costs
Use a power storage solution to effectively compensate for peaks.
With a power storage system, you can effortlessly compensate for short-term demand peaks in the power grid and the associated increased costs.
Avoid peaks: Save on power costs
Energy demand increases at certain times of the day. The result? A brief increase in power demand in the power grid and an associated increase in energy costs. Drawing electricity from an energy storage system effectively counteracts these load peaks and helps you to cut power costs as a result.
Shaving peaks with battery storage systems
A battery storage system allows for a reduction of power costs in the long term: It is being charged up at lower prices when demand is low and discharges during demand peaks.
What companies benefit from using battery storage systems?
Using a battery storage system can reduce a company’s peak load, thereby reducing the demand charge that has to be payed. This is particularly attractive if more than 100,000 kWh are used per year in more than 2,500 hours of use.
When and where do load peaks occur?
How can I find out whether I would benefit from a storage system for peak load shaving?
Your individual load profile determines whether peak shaving would be profitable for your operation. The following information is required for an appropriate evaluation:
- Annual load profile of the relevant service connection (power consumption in 15-minute average values in CSV or Excel format; this can usually be requested from the utility company)
- Demand rate (this is shown in the grid operator’s rate sheet or in the utility bill)
We will be happy to help you determine your peak shaving potential.
