The key consideration for this project was proof of concept. As customers have full visibility of the workings of the system, they can understand in depth how their energy is working for them, and also support them in providing an incredibly comprehensive business case to the customer. In addition, the intuitive system can run automatically, as the AI powered energy management system can take control of the batteries, understanding the customers financial objectives. It can then charge or discharge the system rapidly, making it the ideal system to support revenue generation via grid balancing services.
A battery energy storage system (BESS) can generate revenue in a few different ways, namely responsively taking advantage of price differentials, or providing grid balancing services. As we move towards increasing the number of renewables in our power generation mix, the ability to balance this with flexibility elsewhere on the power system will become increasingly important.
Connected energy provided Bryt Energy with a 60KWh/90KW E-STOR system. The E-STOR is the commercial scale battery energy storage system.
