The order is from one of Europe’s largest utility companies, operating throughout the UK. This unit will be delivered to a warehousing and logistics company in the South West of England. The utility intends to trial the system to demonstrate improved payback on the customer’s existing PV installation, by enabling the storing of power for self-consumption or export at periods of high electricity price, and the battery will also be used to minimise the customer’s fees related to site import capacity. Alongside the analysis of these benefits, installing the system will allow examination of the potential for the use of flow batteries in value added grid/ancillary services, and it will also allow the charging and integration of multiple electric vehicles (cars, vans and forklifts) from the on-site PV.
