In this series we will be looking at aspects of energy generation, energy storage + smart grid technology and we explore how data is used to inform both up-front investment decisions and ongoing investment return.
3. Flexibility Markets: Why You Should Care.
The cost of energy storage systems is falling largely as a result of Flexibility Markets which are driving opportunities for investment and new revenue streams, but it's a complicated picture: volatile pricing, variable tariffs and battery technology result in risk. How can you assess this complexity and achieve investment clarity? Fraser and Alastair explain the market, what the opportunities are and how GridMAP with market facilitation work to mitigate risk for a clear strategy for your energy storage.
2. Should You Get a Free Storage Battery?
With an increasing number of offers for business to take a free battery you need to know if this is a good idea, but there are man factors to consider. Argand have a 3 step process to help you get the right answer; GridMAP models your energy profile data with potential export revenues and combines this to reveal the overall effect when battery storage is included in the mix. Fraser Durham: "The view held by most is that energy generation and storage doesn't make sense. We think that's wrong: it does."
1. Does Energy Storage Make Sense?
With energy demand increasing, emission targets in place and a grid that is under pressure, the case for renewable generation is clear and energy storage is a vital part of the mix. But is now the right time to invest? It's a complicated mix of technology, tariffs and financing; we could all benefit from some clarity... Join Fraser as he explains how Argand Solutions are modelling complex data to present you with clear options, so that you can easily communicate the best choice to your customers.
