Join the energy transition with onsite storage

Battery storage is urgently needed for the renewable energy transition, and is excpected to play a huge role in Australia’s future power system. BNEF predicts that by 2050, up to 87GW of solar capacity and 83GWh of storage capacity will be added in Australia. Businesses see battery storage as a complement to their renewable energy strategy, and a strong opportunity to improve their bottom line while accelerating their path to decarbonisation. Enel X is a global leader in this space, and is a partner of choice for Australian businesses.

How onsite batteries support your business

Reduce your power supply costs

 

A battery can optimise the profile of your power usage, serving to reduce demand and capacity charges you pay to the network utility, and can utilise your sites solar production that would otherwise be exported.

 

 

Earn a new revenue stream

A battery, when properly integrated into a Virtual Power Plant (VPP) platform, is capable of providing multiple different valuable services to the power grid. In aggregate, this can generate significant revenue.

Accelerate your path to decarbonisation

Batteries are the critical enabler to support variable renewable energy. By installing a battery you are creating an important new source of green power capacity for your site that can also help support the grid’s overall transformation.

Whether you have an on-site solar (PV) system or an off-site renewable energy Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), a battery can help balance the variability of your renewable supply. This could allow you to increase your utilisation of renewable energy while reducing the price risks you face when the sun isn’t shining.

Improve the quality of your power supply

Depending on its configuration, a battery can enhance your protection against grid emergencies, providing a source of backup power supply in a blackout.
