Energy flexibility in production using battery storage
Rising electricity prices in Germany are putting pressure on the international competitiveness of German industry. In addition to labor prices, the costs for peak loads are particularly high. At the same time, the construction of own generation facilities such as photovoltaic systems offers companies the opportunity to generate green electricity themselves with significant cost advantages, although the generation capacity is highly dependent on the weather. In this context, the use of battery storage systems can increase own consumption and avoid costly load peaks. In the production environment, these batteries must be controlled as optimally as possible depending on external conditions such as the weather and fluctuating energy requirements in order to achieve maximum benefit.
