What is Energy Storage, and Why Are Businesses Embracing It?

Facing rising electricity costs and access to incentives through energy market programs, today’s businesses are integrating energy storage to manage their exposure to the grid strategically. Lithium-ion batteries and other forms of energy storage are capable of storing large amounts of electricity for consumption on demand. Facilities with on-site energy storage resources equipped with DER Optimization Software can automatically store electricity when it is least expensive and consume it when costs from the grid are most expensive.

Learn more about how businesses reduce costs, improve resilience, and earn incentive payments with energy storage and distributed energy resources.


Minimize Electricity Costs and Maximize DR Earnings with Energy Storage

The ability to store and consume low-cost electricity on-demand helps C&I energy consumers by radically reducing time-based costs. Time-based costs account for as much as 85% of total energy electricity spend in some markets! Plus you can earn payments through demand response and other energy market programs.

The Value of Energy Storage

Demand Charge Management

Reduce your facility’s peak electricity grid demand levels with commercial energy storage and enjoy lower charges based on less need during peak demand times.

 

Energy Arbitrage

Store low-cost power with your energy storage system so you can avoid using energy from the electricity grid during periods of high-cost energy.

Demand Response

Earn demand response payments for reducing grid demand when called upon without shutting down equipment in your facility. Enel X offers access to more demand response programs worldwide than any other provider.

 

Other Market Programs and Incentives

Capitalize on other regional programs offering compensation for distributed energy storage and solar-plus-storage projects.

 

Pairing with Solar

Integrating energy storage can make new or existing solar energy projects more valuable, providing the ability to use that clean, low-cost power at times when it is most valuable.

 

Improved Grid Stability

Improving your facility’s flexibility with energy storage helps to keep energy costs in control in your community and make the electric grid more reliable and sustainable.

 

Backup Power

Under certain configurations, energy storage can be incorporated into a resilience plan to provide backup power in the event of a grid outage.

Costs are all taken care of by Enel X. The install is taken care of by Enel X. The monitoring is taken care of by Enel X. It’s a pretty user-friendly system, and I would suggest it to anybody who uses a large power demand and has to pay peak prices for energy.
