ITP Renewables were commissioned by the Willoughby City Council to examine the costs and benefits of battery storage for excess energy produced by Willoughby City Council’s PV system. The Willoughby City Council hired ITP Renewables to investigate the financial viability of storing excess solar energy, as the Council is being paid far less for exported solar energy than it pays for energy used from the grid.
The study involved:
- Examination of storage technologies and integration equipment available to the Council for implementation with its PV array
- Analysis of the load characteristics of the Council building to assess its suitability for energy storage
- Detailed cost modelling of installing the storage system.
