edie Explains: Battery Storage

Centrica Business Solutions has partnered with edie to publish their latest 'explains' report: Battery Storage

More organisations are now securing energy resilience, reducing energy costs, unlocking revenue opportunities, and improving sustainability, by integrating battery storage with onsite generation.

We've joined forces with edie to publish an introductory guide to battery storage that explains how this technology can enhance energy performance.

Battery Storage: Your questions answered

How does energy storage work? Which organisations can benefit from battery storage and what are the benefits? What should energy managers consider when selecting and installing batteries? What types of technology should they choose, and what are the current costs and likely return on investment?

These are some of the key questions answered in the free guide, which demonstrates how battery storage can optimise distributed energy solutions. The growing importance of grid balancing and the role that batteries can play in stabilising the electricity network and facilitating the introduction of more solar and wind power, is explained.

Top tips on what to look out for when specifying a battery storage scheme are also covered in the guide, including integrating the asset into a wider decentralised energy project.

Enhancing onsite generation

The falling cost of batteries is encouraging businesses to use storage to enhance their onsite solar and combined heat and power (CHP) generation. This is of particular benefit to energy intensive businesses with critical energy needs, who can use battery storage to improve resilience and site sustainability, combat rising energy prices and monetise their energy assets.
