Coletta and Tyson identified that the introduction of a battery energy storage system could be the answer they required. By capturing the renewable energy that the site was generating, the system can also save this for a more suitable time, helping them to maximise all energy generated.
The Connected Energy management system also enables the site to offer grid balancing services which allows the company to provide energy back to the grid and be paid for that directly.
Finally, the sustainability credentials of the system were an additional benefit to the company. Built by utilising second life batteries, the system extracted value from resources that would have otherwise been wasted. Building on the already cutting-edge battery tech from the OEM’s, the systems delivered a safe and effective battery storage solution to rival a first life system, but with a greatly diminished environmental impact.
Now installed, the system works seamlessly with the existing 400kW solar PV array, wind farm and ground source heat system installed on the company’s site in East Yorkshire. A state-of-the-art solution for a cutting-edge customer.
