We closely work with our partners to deliver a Solar PV farms with large scale battery storage projects. With QBots platform we would manage these renewable micro-grids to power housing estates or business parks or new developments.
We help connecting the system to the local distribution networks across UK and work with demand-side aggregators to manage its day-to-day operation to optimise performance and maximise value.
Unlocking value from battery storage
The system will make money in two ways: time of use discharging, which involves storing electricity generated during periods of low demand and releasing it when demand peaks, and Firm Frequency Response (FFR), which involves the battery automatically charging and discharging to help balance electricity supply and demand second-by-second.
The system will benefit from the solar PV plant’s export capacity but additional grid import would be needed so that the system could still participate in FFR when the solar PV plant was not generating power.
