Revolutionising the Energy Landscape: The Role of Battery Energy Storage System (BESS)

27.03.2024 By Fuelfix Go-Greener GO BACK

As Australian industries transition towards decarbonisation, the advancement of variable renewable energy technologies, bolstered by supportive policies, is playing a pivotal role in transforming global power systems.

Battery energy storage systems (BESS) play an important role in the successful transition to cleaner energy, enabling the effective utilisation of renewable resources like solar to meet growing energy demand.

In this article, discover how BESS can help Australian businesses achieve emissions reduction goals while maintaining operation efficiencies.


Understanding Battery Energy Storage

BESS is an electrical energy storage system integrating battery storage technology with power conversion systems. It is one part of an energy distribution system, taking power in from multiple sources, such as renewables, grid or generators and distributing power for a variety of applications.

The system enables excess energy to be stored and released to meet the demands of peaking power. It can be used as a separate energy supply solution for remote and isolated areas, or it can be integrated with the main power grid to increase efficiencies in power supply.

Battery energy storage systems are revolutionising the way we generate, store, and distribute electricity, driving the transition towards a cleaner, more sustainable energy future. 

By reducing energy waste and ensuring a stable power supply, the BESS system delivers energy reliability and operational efficiencies while reducing energy costs and CO2 emissions.


Impact of BESS on the Energy Landscape

The emergence of battery energy storage solutions is driving significant changes in the Australian energy landscape. They are becoming part of the solution for reliable, sustainable energy delivery into the future. They provide the capacity to store energy generated from renewable sources, increase efficiencies and flexibility in power delivery, and energy security.

  • Off-Grid Solutions:

BESS systems offer a sustainable alternative to diesel generators for Australian industries, particularly those operating in remote areas. By providing clean, reliable and low-cost power, they help reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions and increase the efficiency of existing power generation.

These energy storage solutions can be easily scaled and rapidly deployed to meet the requirements of various mining operations, construction sites and other Off-grid projects.

  • Clean Supplement or Back-Up to Grid Power:

Battery solutions can supplement the energy requirements when grid power is insufficient to meet the energy demand. They enable the seamless integration of renewable energy sources into the grid, mitigating the intermittency associated with solar and wind power.

They are also a good alternative to traditional diesel generators, storing clean energy from renewable sources and releasing it during downtime/power outage.

  • Hybrid Systems

BESS can be used with traditional power Generation systems like generators to provide peak shaving and low load management.

Energy storage batteries maximise the utilisation of clean energy resources, distributing power as required, they can reduce generator run times by more than 50%, saving costs related to fuel and maintenance and reducing emissions.
