Balancing Energy Efficiency

We are passionate about empowering your business to radically overturn your approach to energy consumption.

Energy Systems are going through a period of rapid and fundamental change due to the three main drivers:

Why Do We Need Energy Storage Now?

The grid operator is responsible for balancing supply and demand of electricity. With the introduction of more than 1600MW of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) in NI, balancing has become more challenging. At times of unexpected increases in demand, energy storage can be used to discharge power back to the Systems Operator (SONI) and Eirgrid. Participating in this ‘demand balancing’ provides businesses with significant rewards. Energy Storage is used to ‘smooth out’ the supply from RES which is unreliable by nature.

The fact that Energy Systems are going through a period of rapid and fundamental change presents a variety of challenges to the grid and huge opportunities for business consumers. The historic, centralised model of energy systems that regarded consumers as passive is being overturned.

The Northern Ireland generation of RES is world leading but supply outweighs demand. In order to meet government targets for the Island of Ireland and fully utilise our renewables as well as support the infrastructure requirements for EV fleets, we need battery energy storage.

What Are Battery Energy Storage Systems?

Battery Energy Storage Systems store electrical energy from both renewable and non-renewable sources for use when required.

Large energy users have the ability to come off the grid, flexibly. The DS3 market in Ireland enables organisations with energy consuming machinery and equipment to trade their energy. Our BESS offer organisations a flexible approach to energy consumption with best in class software capable of automatically optimizing power usage onsite.

How Do Battery Energy Storage Systems Work?

Continu Energy offers battery storage solutions in partnership with global leading energy storage solution manufacturers. By storing electrical energy (BESS) the business consumer can manage variability from onsite renewable energy, balance supply and demand, and create new income streams.
