AESRPT Micro-grid

The OnSite AESRPT is a scalable renewable technology distributed electrical power resource that can be utilized as a power back up solution or primary electrical power at the location.(Micro-Grid) They are typically designed in the range of 1 kW to 50,000 kW), they will provide additional security and or enhancement to your energy needs.

 According to the US Department of Energy, global energy use will jump by 49% between 2007 and 2035 – as energy demand continues to increase our world’s centralized electrical power grids experience tremendous and unsustainable strain.

This strain leaves us vulnerable to electricity shortages, rolling blackouts and electricity quality issues. Making matters worse, a large number of the centralized power grids are inefficient and “dirty” – squandering precious natural resources. Available electricity power usage is base on system design.

Basics of Energy Storage:

Energy storage refers to resources which can serve as both electrical load by consuming power while charging and electrical generation by releasing power while discharging. Energy storage comes in a variety of forms, including mechanical (e.g., pumped hydro), thermal (e.g., ice/water), and electro-chemical (e.g., batteries). Recent advances in energy storage, particularly in batteries, have overcome previous size and economic barriers preventing wide-scale deployment in commercial buildings. Although there are significant differences between technologies, energy storage systems  contain the same basic components

  • Storage Technology – to store and release energy
  • Power Conversion – to convert the form (AC or DC) of the incoming and outgoing energy
  • Thermal Management – to keep the storage technology within the required operating temperature range
  • Software & Controls – to monitor and control the flow of energy

Organization Benefits at your facilities:

By serving as both electricity generation and load, energy storage can provide benefits to all user as a whole. For most commercial users the primary energy storage applications are:

  • Alternative and Renewable Power Integration
  • Energy Arbitrage (buy low, sell/use high)
  • Power Factor Charge Management
  • Power Outages /Power Back up
  • Energy Shifting and Smoothing
  • Demand Charge Management
  • Critical Loads Power Outages
  • Reduce Facility Electric bill

Depending on the local utility, some systems can also generate revenue by providing services to the larger utility grid as a back up solution. In these cases, an agreement is made between the system owner and the utility.
