On site power generation
When: Thursday, 3 October 2019, 11:00 - 12:30
Where: Esperance + Otter (130 participants)
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.
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.
- What is the market for onsite generation and energy storage?
- What are Power Purchase Agreements for on-site installations?
- How can storage competitively support supply and offer cost effective solutions to firm up the variable supply from solar and wind?
- New offtake agreements for energy storage facilities, what terms should developers use?
- Combining solar, storage and diesel generation as part of a local grid-connected microgrid and Uninterruptible Power Supply package
