As the world continues to shift towards renewable energy sources, energy storage systems have become increasingly important to help balance supply and demand. Battery energy storage systems (BESS) are one such solution that can help store excess energy from renewable sources and release it when needed. However, not all BESS solutions are created equal when it comes to scalability.
Scalability is a crucial factor when it comes to BESS solutions. Having a system that can grow and adapt to a business’ changing energy needs over time is essential to make them useful. Most BESS solutions that exist today make use of large container units that certainly fulfill the criteria of being scalable, but are challenging to make room for. They also provide far too much extra capacity from one increment to the next, making it an unviable and needlessly expensive solution for many businesses and commercial buildings that could otherwise benefit greatly from a BESS.
Improving scalability in BESS solutions
We believe that improving scalability with options for smaller increments is key to making BESS a more versatile solution and viable option for a wider range of businesses, commercial buildings and even private residences. With wider adoption of BESS solutions, we achieve greater sustainability by reducing wasted energy from renewable sources, and make it far easier to face the increasing challenge of balancing power in the grid.
At ECO STOR, we achieve greater scalability in our solution by offering battery solutions in cabinets. These cabinets are much smaller than container units, making them far more versatile in terms of both integration and scalability. Now every end-user can have a BESS solution tailored to their needs and budget, and reap the benefits of having a BESS, such as peak shaving or extra safety in access to emergency power.
Our solution allows businesses to start with a smaller solution more suited to their size, and add more units as their energy needs grow. This approach not only makes it easier for environmentally conscious businesses to adopt a BESS solution, but also makes it more affordable.
Scalability for commercial buildings
This improved scalability is a key factor for commercial buildings considering a BESS solution. As businesses with different energy needs move into a building, or charging stations for electric vehicles are installed, power demand can increase rapidly. With a properly scalable solution, the increased demand is easily met, while still taking into account factors such as budget and available space.
Making a difference for you and the planet
Integrating a scalable battery energy storage system can make a major difference for businesses looking to contribute to making renewable energy sources more sustainable. Each business would help maintain balance in the power grid, while also making considerable savings on their energy bills through peak shaving.
We firmly believe that BESS will play a huge part in power grids of the future, as we replace fossil fuel energy with renewable sources. ECO STOR’s solutions are built with this renewable future in mind, where scalability is the key to sustainability.
