Stacking the deck in your favor
with multiple value streams
Designed correctly, your energy storage system can deliver multiple economic benefits: demand charge reduction, time-of-use supply charge reduction, PV self-consumption, demand response, backup power, frequency regulation, voltage support / VAR injection and carbon offsets. See how the economic returns of your energy storage system can be optimized in real time with our Distributed Energy Network Optimization System (DEN.OS™).
