SAN DIEGO, Calif. November 7, 2019 /3BL Media/ – National Grid today announced that two of its energy storage projects have been recognized as Energy Storage North America (ESNA) 2019 Innovation Award winners in the categories of microgrids and behind-the-meter projects. The projects were chosen for their innovation and leadership in energy storage, as well as a positive impact on the energy storage industry.
It is easy to talk about sustainability, especially when the timeframes for achieving quantifiable results are comfortably far in the future. It’s much harder to actually implement feasible sustainability programs that will have a significant business impact.
For many, “sustainability” evokes images of solar panels, windmills, and electric vehicles. When we at Green Charge use the word, we are indeed talking about reducing carbon emissions by using energy storage to bank renewable energy, thus reducing reliance on power from oil and coal. We also contribute to sustainability by giving utilities the means to leverage our distributed customer-sited energy storage so they can more efficiently balance grid demand.
Energy storage is a versatile tool that can help support sustainability efforts while also enhancing operations and improving your bottom line.
Commercial and industrial organizations can benefit from adding energy storage to their sustainability plans, from increasing the use of renewables and adding resilience to cutting demand charges and supporting the grid.
