17 Feb WEBINAR: BETWEEN PEAKSHAVING AND PRIMARY CONTROL RESERVE – HOW LARGE MEMORY EARNS MONEY TODAY
When large storage systems are installed by investors such as municipal utilities, energy suppliers or industrial customers, it often turns out that a battery storage system has to fulfil several tasks in order to achieve good economic efficiency. For example, peak shaving and the provision of primary control reserve is a popular combination. By avoiding peak loads, the operator of the storage facility can save network charges and, if they occur rarely and predictably, the storage facility can offer primary balancing power in the remaining weeks of the year. However, finding and calculating such combined applications and designing and operating the storage facility accordingly requires precise knowledge of the technology and the market.
In this webinar we want to look at some large storage projects together with Hans Urban, engineer at initiative partner Smart Power, and discuss the design and economic efficiency. How does the storage pay off in different situations?
We will also present an interesting way to reduce investment costs by using second-use batteries from the automotive industry, which are built into a system with new batteries. The webinar will tell you about the experiences Smart Power has already made with these batteries.
