If you’re feeling the pressure to amp up your business’s sustainability efforts – you’re not alone. In the age of conscious capitalism, many companies are seeking greener, more eco-friendly ways to operate. The switch to renewable energy sources, such as solar panels, has increasingly become a practical and cost-effective choice in this transition. 

But there’s one question that often gets asked: given the sun’s intermittent availability, especially here in the cloudy depths of the UK, how can businesses reliably count on solar panels to make progress towards their net zero goals?

The solution is straightforward: the implementation of advanced commercial battery storage solutions.

What is commercial battery storage?

To put it simply, if you own solar panels and want to store the energy generated by them for later use – you’ll want commercial battery storage. 

During peak sunlight hours, the battery captures and stores any excess solar power that is generated. As sunlight availability diminishes, this stored energy is efficiently distributed throughout the system. 

This sophisticated process guarantees a steady power supply, minimises dependence on the national grid, and significantly reduces the risk of blackouts.

What are the benefits of commercial battery storage?

There are several commercial benefits to utilising battery storage, including:

Consistent supply of power

While the sun is not always shining – a battery storage system works around the clock. This compensates for any fluctuations in solar energy supply and ensures your business can operate consistently. 

Less reliance on the grid

Commercial battery storage guarantees a continuous energy supply, even when the national grid is unstable due to peaks in demand or extreme weather. 

Increased flexibility

One of the biggest advantages of battery storage is that it offers businesses flexibility and total control over their energy supply. Whether that be via load shifting or peak shaving – the result is greater control and more money in your pocket. 

Strive towards Net Zero

As many businesses are committing towards achieving net zero as part of their sustainability strategies – battery storage solutions play a vital role in achieving these goals. This future-proofs your business and allows you to stride towards net zero.

How much solar battery storage do you need?

How much battery storage your commercial property requires will vary depending on the size and demands of your business. As you’d imagine, the greater your power usage is, the greater the battery capacity you’ll require.

Don’t worry though – here at Ember Energy, our experts will assess your site to determine the right capacity for you.

Is solar battery storage worth investing in?

To evaluate the return on investment (ROI) of battery storage, you’ll need to consider not only the upfront costs but also the long-term savings that come with improved energy management. 

Although the cost of commercial battery storage systems may seem high initially, the potential savings achieved through reduced reliance on the grid, lower energy bills, and peak demand charges can result in significant financial benefits in the long run.

Stay ahead of the game with commercial battery storage

Transitioning to a more sustainable energy model is no longer a lofty aspiration for businesses – it’s an essential undertaking in today’s market. Commercial battery storage solutions offer a practical, effective way to make this transition, providing not only cost savings and energy efficiency but also contributing significantly towards achieving net zero targets.

As businesses continue to seek ways to improve their sustainability, commercial battery storage is expected to play an even larger role in the near future. Battery storage not only allows businesses to optimise their energy usage but also contributes to broader environmental goals, helping to reduce carbon emissions and transition towards a cleaner, greener future.
