Xero Energy performed a full wrap analysis of the feasibility of deployment of battery energy storage with an existing wind farm project. The analysis included a review of the possible value streams available to the wind farm operator from deploying battery energy storage – including balancing services, frequency response, opportunities for service provision to the DNO, supplier (e.g. triad avoidance) and site operator (site overplanting) amongst others.
The review also covered the capital and operational costs for integrating storage into the existing site as well as the potential hurdles and risks. Xero Energy’s work allowed the project owner to make an informed decision on how to proceed.
