House of Procurement’s intelligent energy storage and management system gives facility managers a new level of control over both the cost and reliability of electrical power.
Onsite intelligent energy storage enables organizations to “level the load” by taking advantage of incentive electricity rates, while avoiding high demand charges and time-of-use fees. The ability to generate electricity on demand also keeps mission-critical systems running during power outages. Onsite storage makes it easier to add onsite generation from renewable and non-renewable by making it possible to accommodate both peak load and peak production.
No facility is too large or too small to benefit from this solution. And with the many benefits afforded by an intelligent energy storage and management system, the investment usually pays for itself relatively quickly based on consumption.
The ultimate future of smart buildings and campuses is a microgrid that consumes “net zero” energy from the grid, and has a minimal or zero carbon footprint.
Microgrids and VPPs benefit considerably from the ability to “level the load” by alternately storing and generating energy as needed. Diesel generators no longer need to power up and down to regulate load, conserving both fuel and wear and tear. And every Watt of power generated whenever the sun shines and the wind blows can be put to use independently of the current demand.
When tied to the grid, intelligent energy storage enables organizations to take full advantage of incentive electricity rates, while avoiding high demand charges and time-of-use fees. And having sufficient capacity makes it possible to keep mission-critical systems running during grid disturbances and brief outages without firing up any generators.
In an independent microgrid or VPP, intelligent energy storage and management makes optimal use of all sources of generation. Intermittent solar and wind generation can become the “primary” sources of power, with diesel generators being used only when necessary. The result is an energy ecosystem that is more dependable, more stable and more affordable.
