COMMERCIAL BATTERY STORAGE


Commercial Battery Storage Systems For Your Business

Energy storage, or battery storage solutions, refers to on-site battery units providing businesses with the ability to store and release electricity at predetermined times. These systems operate autonomously from the grid, ensuring independence, and serve as backup power when required.

GB NRG delivers a comprehensive turnkey solution for battery storage, encompassing a thorough analysis of your business’s suitability, technology specification, system design, and seamless installation.

These batteries store excess energy during the day, making it available for use at night or during cloudy periods. By efficiently capturing and storing solar energy, BESS (Battery Energy Storage Systems) reduces reliance on the grid, promotes energy independence, and significantly reduces carbon footprints.

With battery storage, renewable energy is readily accessible at all times.

The Variations of Batteries


The Different Types of Commercial Battery Storage

When it comes to solar batteries, there’s a range of options, each with its unique characteristics and benefits. Here’s a breakdown:

  1. Lead-Acid Batteries: Affordable and commonly used, they come in two types: flooded (suitable for larger systems with regular maintenance) and sealed (maintenance-free, ideal for smaller setups).
  2. Lithium-Ion Batteries: Known for high energy density, longer lifespan, and lightweight design. Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries, a specific type, offer safety, stability, and efficiency.
  3. Emerging Technologies: Like flow batteries and saltwater batteries, offer scalability and non-toxicity advantages.

Choosing the right solar battery hinges on factors like budget, energy storage needs, and project specifics.

INTEGRATING commercial battery storage


Commonly, battery storage solutions are combined with commercial solar panels to optimise energy savings and unlock various financial and environmental advantages.

Alternatively, these battery units can operate independently, without a renewable energy source, storing low-cost grid energy during off-peak periods and discharging during peak times to mitigate demand charges and high-energy costs

// FAQ

Is it advisable to wait for technological advancements?

If current battery storage technology meets your needs and the benefits outweigh the costs, it’s advisable to proceed with implementation rather than waiting for future advancements. However, if you can afford to wait and anticipate significant improvements in efficiency or cost-effectiveness, delaying may be beneficial. Evaluate urgency, costs, and potential benefits to make an informed decision.

What are the size specifications of battery storage solutions?

Commercial battery storage solutions typically range from hundreds of kilowatt-hours to several megawatt-hours in capacity.

How long will a battery last?

The lifespan of a commercial battery depends on various factors, including the type of battery, usage patterns, maintenance, and environmental conditions. Generally, commercial battery systems are designed to last between 5 to 15 years, but this can vary significantly based on the specific circumstances. Regular maintenance and proper usage can help extend the lifespan of commercial batteries.
