Power Management & Industrial Peak Shaving (IPS)

Electricity costs of companies are rising around the world. Power-peaks are main cost drivers for industrial companies.

The need for increased investment in grid expansion as well as further expansion of fluctuating renewable energies with increasing need of power balancing trigger further rising costs.

But there are also attractive incentives for avoiding power peaks on the demand side. Smoothing and shaving the fluctuating power demand with the use of energy assets like battery systems, different power generating and consuming assets can reduce the electricity costs dramatically.

The phyr7 system analyzes, operates and optimizes complex hybrid energy storage systems with artificial intelligent (AI) routines and self learning algorithms.

Demand side solutions:

  • Industrial peak shaving & Power management

  • Power reserve & frequency regulation

  • Fast charging stations

  • Off-grid power solutions & hybrid generators

Benefits:

  • Efficient operating industrial energy storage systems (e.g. with Li-Ion-batteries)

  • Optimized operating of different power generating assets (e.g. CHP, Fuel cells) and energy converting assets (e.g. power-to-heat or power-to-gas facilities, Redox flow batteries, Reversible fuel cells)

  • Reduction the electric energy cost 20-40%

  • Increasing reliability (power quality), reducing Capex (grid)

  • Further income from the energy market
