The entire energy supply situation for commercial and industrial companies has changed in the last decade. With the benefits of local distributed renewable generation and the introduction of many more price and benefit schemes the financial, commercial and technical aspects of energy management has changed. More importantly is that it will continue to change and as such has become a risk or sometimes even a businss critical risk for C&I companies who require highest flexibility of any energy storage technology chosen. CellCube's  long duration storage with its overrating capabilities and product life of more than 20 years offers a perfect fit to such situation, integrating renewables, managing a microgrid or power peaks as well as being even able to backup increasing EV charging or replace current UPS lead acid batteries.


Use Case:

Resilience / UPS

Due to increasing stress and limitations in the grid, small power cuts or power outages manufacturers face increased costs in production. Special filters plus a long duration CellCube help to overcome such issues and potentially switch into microgrid or even UPS mode over several hours to allow continous factory production

Benefits

Reduce emissions, increase reliability and save on fuel at government, school and hospital facilities.

 

Customer Challenge

Increased Power Quality issues lead to more power outages (increased SAIDI/SAIFI) which impacts industrial companies by:

  • Additional costs for losses in production

  • Additional costs for investments in infrastructure and conventional UPS

  • Forecast reliability in production decreases

  • Reputation of company can be harmed

  • Potential claims with local DNO

CellCube Solution

CellCube batteries can provide continious power to critical loads for eight hours or more in the event of grid outages. In addtion to providing multi-hour backup. With solar or other local power generation, additional resilence can be provided by using CellCube batteries in a microgrid configuration with islanding capacity.


Use Case:

Energy Bill Optimization

When peak demand prices, red-zone tarifs or special power adjustment costs become a burden for the energy costs energy storage is a known and good solution. A long duration CellCube can optimize the energy bill even better when tarifs span over multiple hours.

 

Customer Challenge

While Energy Costs was in the past already well optimized by the Energy Procurement the grid tarif structure has become more challenging while energy supply from onsite generation became financially attractive. The Optimization of Energy costs needs now to include infrastructure assets too to achieve the maximum benefit.

CellCube Solution

Demand Charge Management to minimize use "red-band" tarrifs and to increase self-consumption of PV.

Benefits

Minimize demand charges and optimize your TOU bill while increasing PV self-consumption. Harness backup power and potential utility payments for ancillary services.


Use Case:

Community & Industrial Zones

Distributed Generation, electric vehicles charging or power demand from C&I companies is the new challenge for energy supply and grid distribution. A long duration CellCube is the perfect energy storage and microgrid solution to balance both power and energy demand for multiple use cases in a local area.

Benefits

Gain several benefits thanks to the positioning of the CellCube solution near to MV substation. Benefits therefore reach from local optimization as well as ancillery services for the distribution grid and/or participation on reserve, capacity and spot markets to profit from additional revenue streams. Furthermore, the CellCube system is ready for the future cloud storage solutions with its various communication interface options. This makes energy trades over regional/local distribution grids possible.

 

Customer Challenge

The energy use of today and the future is driven by more power, more energy, more mobilty and more flexibility. Requirements of C&I companies have become multifold and current infrastructure does not keep pace with their needs. This leads to potential business risks like cost increases, delayed investments for growth or reputation losses.

At the same time C&I clients are looking to benefit from energy market mechanisms and to participate in the merchant market to allow for additional revenues to pay off for the required investments.

CellCube Solution

Small to medium CellCube storage of 2-8 hours are installed next to MV substations. Use local renewables or combined heat for re-charging.

CellCube will provide peak demands or does peak shaving, supports energy shifting and if needed switches between ongrid and offgrid capabilities. The PCS concept integrates smaller units within the CellCube's to allow highest availability rates for the operation.

Use Case:

Remote Sites / Offgrid

Distributed Generation, electric vehicles charging or power demand from C&I companies is the new challenge for energy supply and grid distribution. A long duration CellCube is the perfect energy storage and microgrid solution to balance both power and energy demand for multiple use cases in a local area.

 

Customer Challenge

Energy Supply in remote offgrid areas is as demanding as it has always been. Transportation, logistics and local maintenance are key challenges and with the ability of decentral power generation by solar or wind many remote areas get the chance to de-risk and reduce costs for the energy management if not intermittency or volatility of those generation assets required still backups which drive the costs up.

CellCube Solution

Add small to medium CellCube storage of 4-12 hours to remote locations. Use renewables or conventional for re-charging. CellCube will provide grid-forming and offgrid capabilities and will be the main power supplier for the remote area. The PCS concept integrates smaller units within the CellCube's to allow highest availability rates for the operation.

Benefits

Minimizing LCOE. Every bad event that can occur on the public grid, can also happen in your own off-grid. Profit with a CellCube in terms of combining all grid-supporting functions from peak-shaving to energy shifting of renewable energy sources to times of higher demands as well as reactive power compensation for C&I off-grids. Also think of longer outages because of a broken energy source, especially in remote locations it can take a long time to get a technician for the repair. CellCube offers long-duration solutions that are covering your demands. Also the possibility to overrate all CellCube systems by 200% offers a huge advantage if sometimes higher demands are occuring in your off-grid.
