The growth of renewable energy means power grids need to become more flexible and resilient. As electrical systems are gradually becoming digital, we’re witnessing a rapid and radical transformation of the energy market, which is shifting to a decentralized system in which consumers generate the energy they need and offload the surplus into the grid. Driven by these changing trends, Battery Energy Storage is becoming a key technology to support the energy transition, guiding commercial and industrial customers. Enel X is among the leading global energy solutions providers of behind-the-meter (BTM) Battery Energy Storage System (BESS).
Enel X's Battery Energy Storage business case
Enel X’s software optimizes projects that include the use of solar energy, fuel cells and energy storage. Regardless of whether you already have such systems up and running in your facility or are interested in integrating them with a battery storage system, customers can choose from among different Enel X storage business models that ensure all their energy needs are met. One of the advantages of installing an Enel X Battery Storage System is that it comes with our DER.OS optimization software, which is designed to work with all kinds of distributed energy resources and can easily be integrated into existing systems, such as solar photovoltaic systems. Furthermore, with its energy storage for business solutions, Enel X takes care of everything from the design to the development and construction of the battery storage system, as well as its regular and exceptional operations and maintenance.
Enel X Global Retail’s battery energy storage solutions have widespread applications, and have already been successfully deployed in various fields and sectors, including - but not limited to - healthcare and education. Read ahead for examples of energy storage business cases in these two fields.
Enel X's Battery Energy Storage Solutions for Health
Adverse and unpredictable weather events can interrupt the continuity of a business’ energy supply. Particularly with health institutions this can cause serious consequences. Especially for the healthcare sector, relying on a stable supply means so much more: protecting people’s health. This is why it is crucial that hospitals, clinics, and pharma manufacturers choose a trusted Energy Solutions Provider. In this case Enel X’s Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) can increase business resiliency, helping companies overcome power outages and grid overloads, optimizing consumption by lowering expensive energy bills and improving energy efficiency by decreasing dependency on the grid. With Enel X, energy stability - and increased sustainability - are at every company’s fingertips.
Enel X's Battery Energy Storage Solutions for Education
Today the future of the next generations is strongly influenced by businesses’ commitment towards net-zero carbon emissions. Boosting energy sustainability sends an important message from the entire education sector. Enel X’s BESS solutions, individual or bundled, help schools and universities reduce their high energy bills and guarantee power quality even during outages. One example? As Enel X BESS, we helped UMass Boston (the University of Massachusetts Boston), cut high energy costs during peak demand hours, guarantee power quality, optimize energy consumption and generate new revenue streams by installing a Solar-plus-storage solution integrated with EV charging stations. By relying on our bundled solutions, UMass Boston is expecting to save 1.5 million dollars.
