Energy efficiency in the
food industry

How you can safely and easily save on grid fees with battery storage.

Saving and driving forward the energy transition together

As Germany's fourth-largest industrial sector, the food industry pays great attention to energy efficiency. Investments in the three-digit million range are used for new processes and technologies.

With the battery storage systems from EDF Renewables, it is possible to operate efficient load management without interrupting chemical processes or cold chains. The intelligent battery supports you in reducing high load peaks, optimizing load profiles, and reducing energy costs.

It couldn't be easier

Peak shaving with battery storage

The most common use case for battery storage is to cap the highest load peaks during the year (peak shaving). In this case, the electricity stored in the battery is used to reduce consumption peaks, thus relieving the load on the local grid. Grid operators reward this by lowering the grid fees.

Peak shaving in high-load time windows

In atypical applications, our battery storage system is used specifically to avoid peak loads and relieve the load on the electricity grid during high-load time windows specified by the grid operator. For optimal implementation from an economic point of view, factors such as load profile and the level of grid charges determine the operating strategy of the battery storage system.

Calculate your potential savings

The specific savings potential through the use of a battery storage solution depends on various factors and can be determined based on the individual load profile. If your sites consume more than 1 GWh, let us check your savings potential!

The Malteurop success story

In December 2019, EDF Renewables Deutschland and malt producer Malteurop commissioned two new battery storage systems in Rostock and Heidenau. Each battery is designed to supply the respective production plant with 200 kW for at least one hour.

"The two battery storage systems are an important and collaborative project that will strengthen the growth of renewable energies."
