Commercial battery storage or commercial energy storage has only in the last few years started to become commercial viable. This is down to a number of factors; reducing battery costs (due to EV innovation) and new revenue streams created by the evolution of the smart grid.
Commercial battery storage or commercial energy storage generates value via a number of routes, the most obvious is load shifting or arbitrage and we’ll explain this later. In addition to this a commercial battery storage or commercial energy storage system can also generate revenues through demand response services. In short this is the activity of supporting National Grid in times of need and in return NG pay healthy fees for the aid. There are a wide range of demand response services, however in summary these can worth circa £80k per MWp of battery capacity per annum (contact us to understand for free how much your business could benefit).
As mentioned above, a commercial battery storage or commercial energy storage package can also bring significant energy savings via load shifting or arbitrage.
