The Solar Energy Industries Association predicts that the solar market is set to double in size by 2023, growing to a staggering $4.5 billion market. This is thanks to the increasing popularity of adopting renewable energy solutions such as solar in both commercial and residential settings. With affordable technologies and the introduction of more renewable energy sources to decarbonize the world’s power network, we’re seeing more and more incentives to switch over to power alternatives such as solar.
However, innovations in power generation need to be complemented with upgrades to our energy storage solutions. Thanks to storage and efficiency improvements, we’re seeing more cost-effective renewable power storage solutions that are suitable for both residential and commercial use. From solar-plus-storage systems to large capacity batteries for industrial use, renewable energy adoption today is both convenient and affordable.
While renewable energy sources have made huge contributions to the decarbonization of the world’s power grid, there are still a couple of challenges that need to be faced.
Variable generation caused by unpredictable weather conditions can make it difficult to forecast power generation. Wind technologies rely heavily on weather conditions and solar energy is effectively zero at night. However, these technologies often produce excess energy in optimal conditions, and keeping this energy in larger and more efficient storage solutions is the key to overcoming variable generation.
Intelligent systems help to optimize everything from power distribution to generation and these technologies are constantly improving, leading to efficient production of renewable energy. Standalone energy storage solutions must have ample room to keep up with the developments in power generation, and this is one of the major challenges that the renewable energy industry is currently facing.
Distributed energy is a concept born from the modular nature of renewable energy generation. Low-carbon grids are created using modular and flexible renewable energy technologies to generate and store power in the same location, often close to the homes, businesses or factories that it serves. This decentralized approach offers advantages such as avoiding losses, improving reliability and lowering emissions caused by transporting energy over long distances. In order to efficiently store and distribute this energy, smart energy storage solutions are required.
Increased use of renewable energy – Efficient renewable energy storage solutions promote the use of clean energy for commercial, residential, and industrial purposes. Whether it’s large-capacity standalone energy storage or solar-plus-storage solutions for residential customers, efficient and affordable energy storage can encourage the adoption of renewable energy.
Improved grid resilience – Renewable energy storage solutions can drastically improve grid resilience and create backup storage to combat generation faults or periods of low variable power generation. Reliability and stability are two important factors that can help with the adoption of renewable energy.
Lowered carbon emissions – Efficient energy storage solutions enable you to store energy for later use with fewer losses. This creates a more efficient system that can cope with the variable generation of renewable energy sources, resulting in a cleaner adoption of renewable energy.
Economic advantages – Adopting renewable sources of energy in the home and commercially helps to strengthen the competitiveness of clean energy. When more companies see the economic viability of investing in generating and selling clean energy, prices will lower and more technology will be developed to support it.
Installing an energy storage solution offers a lot of flexibility and opens many options for both commercial and residential customers. From generating and selling clean energy to using it in the home, we provide solutions that offer value for a wide range of customers.
More companies are starting to adopt solar energy solutions to offset carbon emissions and produce energy that can be used to power certain hardware and ensure that they are constantly running. If you have mission-critical servers, machinery or systems that need to have a reliable and consistent source of power, using a separate grid powered by solar panels and a high-capacity energy storage solution could be a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly solution.
Becoming a green business also has many marketing advantages that helps your brand to stand out from the competition. When adopted across your entire business, it can drastically reduce operating costs and also provide financial benefits through government incentives. It also provides a long-term benefit to your business by protecting your company against the volatility and inflation of energy prices.
Energy storage solutions come in many different shapes and sizes. Depending on how much solar energy you currently or plan to generate, you’ll need a suitable energy storage solution that is capable of holding enough energy to power all of your mission-critical devices. We understand that all businesses have different requirements when it comes to their energy generation and storage needs. If you’re interested in upgrading your existing energy storage solution or have plans to transform your power generation, feel free to contact us today to speak to one of our energy specialists.
In the past, renewable energy solutions seemed like an expensive investment for residential customers. While they’re certainly not cheap these days, they are a lot more accessible thanks to technological developments that have improved their efficiency and the lowered costs of production. In fact, entire energy ecosystems can be put together thanks to the modular nature of solar energy in the home.
Whether you invest in all-in-one solar-plus-storage solutions or put together a system with individual components, there are plenty of affordable ways to adopt the use of solar energy in the home. You could power individual types of electronics, use it as a backup power solution for emergencies and even increase your home value. It helps you lower your carbon footprint by relying less on conventional sources of power and can help you save on energy utility bills.
The installation and adoption of solar energy can drastically change the way you use energy in the home. If you’re interested in learning more, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to learn more about residential energy storage solutions.
