Battery energy storage systems (BESS) perform optimally under various weather conditions. Their key feature is providing backup power during outages or extreme weather events, reducing the need for costly distribution upgrades or emergency generators. For instance, BESS can assist grid-tied and hybrid solar and wind systems with energy time-shift and demand-side management. In windy weather, the system can store excess power produced and release it when required. Similarly, during unpredictable weather patterns affecting renewable energy production, such as cloudy or low wind days, a BESS can ensure a stable energy supply.
Sizing a battery energy storage system (BESS) is essential in ensuring that the system meets your specific energy needs. You need to understand your average daily energy usage and decide how many days you want your system to provide power without recharging. You can calculate the required battery capacity once you know your energy demand and desired autonomy. At United Rentals, we're here to help you navigate this process. Our experts can guide you through each step, ensuring you choose a BESS that aligns with your energy requirements, promotes sustainability and delivers customer satisfaction.
