Right around the globe efforts are underway to improve the way we store and distribute energy, as we move towards more sustainable but intermittent forms of energy generation, such as wind and solar power.
Improving the way we store energy is important for energy security, as it will allow us to decouple energy generation and its usage. Battery systems that store energy enable us to store energy when it's generated and use it when required, replacing the current awkward system where generation has to match demand in real time.
How it Works
ESB Smart Energy Services makes it easy for our customers to implement a battery storage solution. Smart Energy Services fund the cost of the battery, so there are no additional costs to the customer. We procure our high specification batteries from leading world suppliers, and tailor the storage system to match the local customer demand and needs.
Firstly, we analyse your energy usage to design a storage system that is the optimal size for our customer. Then we install the battery, with no up-front costs to the customer. Unlike load shifting approaches to demand management, our battery solutions requires no change in operations for the business and is fully automated.
