We connect solar, batteries & grid.

With a clear focus on your energy matters, we are eager to contribute to an effective solution.

Because every situation is different.

The missing link in your energy transition.

"How do we as a company become less susceptible to the dynamic energy tariff?"

A holistic approach is in order here! By looking at everything to do with saving, generating and storing energy,  on the one hand, and controlling the processes involved in this in the smartest way possible, on the other, the impact of the dynamic energy tariff can be minimized as much as possible. 

Moreover, when a battery can additionally be deployed via artificial intelligence in the various energy markets, a very nice revenue model emerges. It also contributes to the stability of the power grid. A win-win situation so!

"What is the wisest approach for our renewable energy investments: through capital (CAPEX) or through operating expenses (OPEX)?

This choice depends on several factors, including your company’s financial structure, tax implications, liquidity needs and risk appetite. With CAPEX, you obviously retain full ownership and control but it is important to have enough capital left over for other business needs.

In doing so, this entails a certain knowledge and responsibility regarding the various energy assets in and around your company. In the increasingly complex energy landscape, this is certainly not always obvious.

OPEX offers more flexibility because you are not tied to long-term assets. As technology evolves, you can upgrade more easily. A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is a popular OPEX construction that has been on the rise in recent years.

"Our PV installation dates back to 2010. In what way can we renew this installation without losing the right to green power certificates?"

When the solar panel market burgeoned in Belgium, substantial subsidies were initially still paid based on a system’s total annual production. 

These green power certificates were granted for a period of 20 years and came on top of the benefit of the reversing counter. 

In principle, in order to continue to benefit from these certificates, it is not allowed to increase the total peak power of this existing installation. 

With the phasing out of reversing, it may well be interesting to add a battery with its own inverter to the system without losing the certificates. Adding an additional PV system where production is better distributed throughout the day is also always a possibility (east-west orientation).

"We have a large premises but our consumption is relatively low. Do solar panels or a battery make sense?"

With low self-consumption, it was a lot less interesting for companies with a large roof area to install many solar panels for the time being. After all, it is better to consume self-generated energy directly yourself instead of injecting it into the grid.

However, by combining a battery with a PV installation and thereby deploying it on the day-ahead and imbalance market, very nice returns can be made where the battery also contributes to the stability of the electricity grid. So, a great way for a business to make your roof and grid connection profitable.

"What impact will the capacity tariff have on our energy bill? "

This depends on several factors, such as the type of energy contract, your consumption pattern and the specific rates applied. The capacity tariff is a component of the distribution charge on the energy bill and is usually calculated based on the maximum electric power taken during a quarter-hour period.

In general, the purpose of the capacity tariff is to encourage companies to reduce their peak consumption to ensure balance on the grid.

A battery can help reduce the impact of this tariff by reducing the peak load on the grid. The tips of your energy profile are shaved off, so to speak (Peak Shaving).

Our Purpose

We want to maximize the
potential of free energy

We believe this will be possible by adding more storage capacity to the power grid while giving more control over the various energy flows to our end users.
