Managing Electricity Demand, Costs, and Resiliency with Onsite Battery Storage in the Industrial Sector
Battery storage capacity in the U.S. has doubled every two years since 2011. By the end of 2017, there was over 700 MW of installed capacity in the U.S. Traditionally, battery storage projects have been implemented by utilities and independent power producers for grid management. Lately, commercial and industrial facilities are getting into the action, taking advantage of onsite storage to regulate the frequency, support voltage/reactive power, and lower peak demand charges.
Advances in technology and lower prices make battery storage a more accessible tool for controlling electricity prices, improving energy quality, and managing a plant’s carbon footprint. During this webinar participants will get an overview of the state of battery storage in the industrial sector and hear from two industrial organizations on battery storage projects in their manufacturing facilities. Presenters will discuss how to determine whether battery storage is appropriate for a facility.
