On-site generation despite grid moratorium on connections

Sector: Manufacturing

Technology: Off-grid solar PV and Combined Heat + Power

The Challenge: Strong business case for deploying both 2.5MW CHP and 1.5MW solar PV, but grid has moratorium on connections in this area until 2032.

The Solution:

moratorium on connections in this area until 2032.

The Solution: Solution developed to connect the measures but by taking the site off-grid, with the grid as back-up. Solar is connected via a battery for smoothing and load management, and in conjunction with CHP.  When CHP is not available the site reconnects to the grid automatically.  This enables the company to achieve savings without waiting until 2032 and achieve some of their sustainability goals.
