How to cope with the overloaded grid
The overloaded grid proves to be a challenge for many businesses. While facing issues with limited contracted capacity of the grid, businesses are confronted with a long waiting list. It might take years to solve their issues. However, by going for a battery solution, you can skip the queue and solve your problems now.
I'm experiencing grid congestion
WAITING DUE TO OVERLOADED GRID
The electrical grid is overloaded in many places. This means there’s insufficient grid capacity available to transport electricity. This is not only due to the increased usage of electricity, such as the growing number of electric cars, heat pumps, and data centers, but also because of the rise in energy production from wind and solar parks. In short, the infrastructure is not equipped to handle these changes.
Why am I on a waiting list?
Grid operators are working diligently to strengthen the electrical grid. These are large projects that require a lot of time and investment. Once it’s determined that the grid is full, that specific region goes into a ‘lockdown.’ This means your request for a connection is placed on a waiting list. Grid congestion is expected to continue increasing until roughly 2030. This poses challenges for new sustainable energy production initiatives and businesses, resulting in longer waiting times for new or larger connections.
What can a battery solution do for you?
DON'T WAIT ANY LONGER TO ENLARGE YOUR CONTRACTED CAPACITY
WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU?
ENLARGE CONTRACTED CAPACITY
Opt for a battery to resolve issues with an undersized connection or transportation limitations. The stored power provides you with the necessary extra energy when you need it, while the battery recharges when there’s available capacity.
REDUCE ENERGY PEAKS
A battery can help manage energy peak. This is especially interesting if your contracted capacity mainly the result of these energy peaks rather than your actual consumption. It can reduce your contracted capacity and, consequently, costs. Furthermore, it aids in alleviating grid congestion in your region. It’s a win-win situation
