Good Energy steps up b2b battery storage push


Good Energy aims to increase battery storage activity with commercial customers. The renewable energy supplier has signed Belectric and Powerstar as framework partners.

The company, which has 4,000 business supply customers, takes a fully-funded behind-the-meter (BTM) approach, with contracts guaranteeing customers fixed electricity bill savings for the life of the contract.

The aim is to make savings for businesses by using the battery to avoid peak charges, provide ancillary grid services and bid into the Balancing Mechanism and wholesale markets.

“We expect that these systems will deliver significant value to corporate customers, especially in conjunction with Good Energy’s electricity supply contracts,” said Amit Oza, managing director of Belectric UK.

While Good Energy’s main focus is BTM storage at customer sites, it is also looking at front of meter opportunities with generators from whom it buys power.

A spokesperson said projects of 1MW+ hit a “short-term sweet spot”, but added that the company plans to aggregate smaller scale capacity in future.
