Chris Tilley, CEO
Energy production and distribution has become crucial due to growing industrial and manufacturing needs. While the present grids are sufficient and reliable, the demand for more energy from electric power delivery will increase in the future. Fulfilling the energy needs, ENGIE Storage, an intelligent energy storage company helps power the world more efficiently and sustainably. The company designs, finances, builds, and aggregates distributed energy storage solutions. ENGIE Storage offers industry-leading GridSynergy command-and-control software and a fleet of energy storage units installed on both sides of the meter, at commercial sites or utility-owned substations.
The GridSynergy system can be divided into two parts - GridSynergy Software and GridSynergy Hardware. The software helps their engineers analyze energy demand and configure the hardware to meet performance commitments. The cloud-based software draws on historical data from hundreds of GridSynergy systems, learns and adapts to the energy usage patterns in the installed environment to deliver energy optimization services. On the other hand, the GridSynergy hardware is tailored to the needs of the clients to match their project specifications. The company partners with several leading battery and inverter manufacturers who are committed to environmentally responsible lifecycle management of their components. The GridSynergy systems are configured to meet all necessary local site requirements such as weather, noise, and space constraints. The energy-as-a-service (EaaS) provided by the company ensures successful deployment and optimal energy cost management.
The secret behind the success of the ENGIE Storage solutions are the benefits that their clients receive. Their solutions provide convenient charging during off peak hours, automatic power discharge when loads spike, self-generating power solar installations, protecting critical loads with temporary backups.
Solar energy solutions are a part of ENGIE Storage. The company ensures that the energy generated by their client’s solar systems will be available when customers and energy providers need it, to offset spiky loads and reduce grid power use during peak time-of-use periods. The developer-ready GridSynergy energy storage solution also helps in the designing and installation of the solar-plus-storage projects in a flexible way.
Overall, our challenge is the same as any other midsize manufacturer: to try to arrange loads as well as we can to minimize peaks. ENGIE Storage GridSynergy software makes it easy. We don’t have to think about it.
Highlighting the impact of ENGIE Storage solutions is a success story of Sierra Nevada Brewing Company. The challenge faced by the company was to reduce energy demand charges while improving sustainability. The local integrator recommended ENGIE Storage as energy storage experts with proven performance of GridSynergy control software. ENGIE Storage provided 1 Megawatt hour (MWh) of energy storage, controlled through GridSynergy software. Once the solutions were applied, it reduced demand charges on utility bill up to 85 percent for the brewing company and minimized their dependency on California’s power grid. “Overall, our challenge is the same as any other midsize manufacturer: to try to arrange loads as well as we can to minimize peaks. ENGIE Storage GridSynergy software makes it easy. We don’t have to think about it.”– Brandon Smith, Engineering Manager, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company.
The intelligent energy storage company’s solutions have garnered praise from variety of industry groups and publications. Engie acquired three companies last year that broadened the portfolio of options available to its growing customer base in the U.S and Canada. Their energy solutions and venerable track record is recognized throughout the industry. The company has helped several clients in the past and with their financial, technological, and knowledge resources to deliver more reliable, cost efficient, sustainable energy to their future clients. ENGIE Storage is committed to maximize both financial and environmental benefits. Leveraging their performance-based financing, options, and guarantees, and high sustainability standards, the company makes sure that both their customers and the planet can thrive.
