Assessment of the economics of a battery system for peak shaving in an industrial complex

  • Year
  • 2018
  • Client
  • Energon

The project involved operational simulation of a virtual battery system focusing on peak shaving and an economic analysis for a potential investment in an industrial complex. The contents in brief:

Analysis of the past operational data

Battery operation simulations for three connection alternatives

Sensitivity analysis on selected parameters

Economic model

Assessment of the possible use of the battery in other applications

Even though the economics of batteries do not, in this case, match the investor’s expectations, a drop in the price of the technology might make a battery for peak shaving in industrial complexes a common tool for saving energy costs within a few years.
