This paper explores renewables-linked behind-the-meter energy storage systems. It explores applications which can be performed with such systems, including the business model behind such applications and the duty cycle requirements of such applications. It also explores siting and technology choices, including battery types, inverter classifications and other purchasing and installation…read full business practice
