It’s something that organisations across multiple sectors have faced for around a decade, but now the pressure is higher than ever as 2050 looms closer, and the unstable economy adds an extra unwanted burden.
2050, of course, is the year that the UK has set its sights on meeting net zero targets, and a global pandemic and unstable economy have not helped energy managers’ efforts to realise their net zero goals.
Funding is scarce – although not completely impossible to get hold of – and the pressure to improve the energy efficiency of older buildings, and various power-intensive utilities and equipment, in local government, healthcare, and education means that you may be considering any number of solutions.
Battery energy storage (BESS) can provide enormous benefits in terms of load management, renewable energy improvements, electrification of company fleet and heat, as well as the feasibility of storing energy to produce an effective ‘energy management system’.
With BESS in place, you can:
- Smooth peak demands
- Store greener grid energy
- Support other decarbonisation methods
- Capture excess renewable energy generation
Ultimately you can better enhance energy efficient, reduce your impact on the environment and effectively contribute to scope 1 and 2 emissions.
