In storing electricity with a battery, you relieve the burden on the electricity grids, which the grid operators reward with reduced grid fees. If your sites consume more than 1 GWh of electricity per year, check your savings potential with us!
Depending on the conditions on your site, EDF offers you two possible use cases:
- The generic case: applies if you want to shave your plant’s highest peaks throughout the year
- The atypical case: applies if you want to target specific peaks happening during peak hours (defined by your DSO)
Generic use case
Here, the battery is used to cap the loads of the highest peaks throughout the year. That is called “peak-shaving” and is the most common application.
The energy stored in the battery is used to reduce consumption peaks in order to stabilise the power system as a whole. Grid operators reward this through reduced grid fees.
Atypical use case
In this case, the battery is used specifically during peak hours (as defined by the DSO) and targets the highest peaks.
The operating strategy of the battery will be determined in analysing the load profile, electricity spot prices and the level of grid fees for an optimal and economical set-up.
Three contract options for your use case
If you want to use battery storage for peak shaving, we can provide you with three different models. No matter which you choose, here are your advantages:
- No upfront investment
- Net savings from the first year onwards
- Guaranteed battery capacity throughout the contract period
- Regular updates of the system
You find it difficult to cap high load peaks or reduce your business’s energy consumption?
We at EDF Renewables can provide a comprehensive package including a fixed remuneration rate and a complete handling of the risks related to installing a battery — even in the event of legal changes. We can determine which remuneration rates are possible for you based on your load profile. Simply get in touch with us!
Are you already managing your loads and interested in additional savings potential?
Then a cooperation with us could help you to actively support peak-sahving and benefit directly from the savings generated. The rule is: the more capping, the higher the savings.
