On site power generation

Session description

Many commercial businesses are now making the most of on-site generation. Having large land, parking lots or rooftop areas available at their sites means that they can benefit from "behind the meter" electricity at a significantly lower cost than grid supply. On-site can be used as a primary or back-up source of power and offers numerous advantages such as finance options that require little to no upfront investment and capital expenditures (CAPEX), the possibility of having a third party operating and maintaining installations, rather than developing the necessary internal expertise and having operational expenditures (OPEX). On-site generation also creates opportunities for energy storage solutions, increasing flexibility for the off-takers and helping reduce peak demand charges and leverage generation on weekends and holidays.

Learning objectives

In this session, we will dig deeper on the synergies with onsite technologies considering the current state of the market for battery solutions and the potential for storage to reduce on-site costs.
