info_outline Developing Grid Independence 10/04/2018
Developing Grid Independence "We are now in a position where we can utilise renewable power generation and we can use it predictably, so why do we continue to look at the forms of generation that are detrimental to our environment." Rob Miles. CEO Immersa. Here we tackle some of the big questions around energy independence: how will technology affect the grid and the what is the outlook in a subsidy free landscape? This is a must for every person who has an interest in the future of renewable energy. Produced by iamthehow.
info_outline The Power of the Switch 09/12/2018
The Power of the Switch Using modern control technology to simply switch off non critical assets at expensive times can result in significant returns within 1 or 2 years. While distributed generation and storage remain a crucial part of overall energy strategy, switching provides a simple and cost effective approach to energy management that beats many other investments in renewables... the challenge is working out how to get started; this is where we help with our energy audit. Produced by iamthehow.
info_outline Flexibility Markets 08/08/2018
Flexibility Markets The cost of energy storage systems is falling largely as a result of Flexibility Markets which are driving opportunities for investment and new revenue streams, but it's a complicated picture: volatile pricing, variable tariffs & battery technology result in risk. How can you assess this complexity and achieve investment clarity? Fraser and Alistair explain how GridMAP with market facilitation works to mitigate risk for a clear strategy for your energy storage. Produced by iamthehow.
info_outline Should You Get a Free Battery? 05/25/2018
Should You Get a Free Battery? With increasing offers for businesses to take a free battery you need to know if this is a good idea, but there are many factors to consider. Argand have a 3 step process to help you get the right answer; GridMAP models your energy profile data with potential export revenues and combines this to reveal the overall effect when battery storage is included in the mix. Fraser Durham: "There's a story out there that energy generation and storage doesn't make sense. That's wrong: it does." Produced by iamthehow.
info_outline Does Energy Storage Make Sense? 05/03/2018
Does Energy Storage Make Sense? With energy demand increasing, emission targets in place and a grid that is under pressure, the case for renewable generation is clear and energy storage is a vital part of the mix. But is now the right time to invest? It's a complex mix of technology, tariffs and financing; we could all benefit from some clarity. Join Fraser as he explains how Argand are modelling complex data to present you with the clear options, so that you can easily communicate the best choice to your customers. Produced by iamthehow.
info_outline The Base Load Myth 03/20/2018
The Base Load Myth We've heard it said: "If the sun doesn't shine and the wind doesn't blow there will not be enough power, so we have to rely on non-renewable sources for energy." But is this the full picture? And if so, how is technology changing the way that we look at generation, storage, distribution and investment? Join Alastair Gets, Analytics Engineer at Argand Solutions in this podcast to find out how Argand Solutions drives value from data to tackle some of these complex questions. Produced by iamthehow.
