Value for Battery

A large number of companies have invested in solar panels in recent years. Green power certificates and the reverse counter almost automatically made for an interesting business case here. However, with the phasing out of the analog meter and the simultaneous introduction of dynamic and injection tariffs, in many cases it pays to store surplus self-generated energy in a battery. However, this situation will occur mainly on sunny days where a relatively simple control algorithm will suffice. 

To further increase the efficiency of a storage system, a battery can also be controlled in a more proactive way. In doing so, it can also be deployed in the various energy markets. Since this requires specific knowledge and smarter algorithms (artificial intelligence), this is generally outsourced to a specialized party. This can be an energy supplier but also a so-called aggregator that aggregates different assets. Because it allows batteries to be used in a much more effective way, it also allows multiple use cases.

Own consumption:

Excess locally generated energy is stored and released when needed. The battery is like the buffer between generated and consumed energy. Own consumption is increased and dependence on the grid decreases.


Taking advantage of the price variability in the various energy markets (EPEX Spot and imbalance) creates an interesting return that translates into lower monthly bills or even monthly compensation.

Peak Shaving:

A battery system can capped consumption peaks, reducing the power drawn from the grid. This results in a lower capacity tariff and thus a lower electricity bill. It also contributes to a more stable electricity grid.

Net balancing:

By making the capacity of a battery available to the grid operator, it can help maintain balance in the power grid. You will receive a fixed fee even if it proves unnecessary to deploy your asset. 

Additional capacity:

Are you planning to convert your fleet to 100% electric? If so, you may be running into the limit of your grid capacity. A battery allows you to get more power quickly, allowing you to charge vehicles faster, for example.


When no grid connection is available (temporarily), it is possible to deploy our batteries off-grid. Effective management in a microgrid requires a sophisticated energy management system (EMS) to ensure that batteries are used in the most efficient manner.
