Power intensive Commercial and Industrial users face a wide range of uncertainty when it comes to energy costs, reliability and their environmental performance.
Most are pressured to reduce their operating costs without increasing capital expenditures, increase their operational reliability to further improve growth and to deploy renewables or intelligent energy solutions to reduce their CO2 emissions.
We use our technology to change the load profile during peak periods when demand and prices are high by charging the battery during times of lower prices. This arbitrage allows us to reduce the company’s exposure to rising peak charges. We can also do this on a half hourly basis based on the wholesale price and therefore further optimising a sites energy consumption.
Zenobe can provide a full or partial UPS service covering a complete site or critical systems and protecting them from brownouts, voltage dips or other service interruptions for an agreed length of time. As the share of renewables increases and that of spinning reserve decreases the stability and quality of the grid supply is forecast to decrease.
The energy storage asset can further optimise grid consumption to favour times when the carbon intensity is lower or prioritise the use of on-site renewable energy generation which can lead to further cost savings as well as a reduction in carbon footprint.
