Behind-the-meter applications are not only the biggest market for energy storage, they also show tremendous growth, and market prospects are expansive. Among all power consumers, Wanke Energy selected data centers, hotels, and commercial complexes, three users with high energy consumption.
The data center should provide an all-day protection for valuable important data. Electric power supply is the main cost factor of the data center, and 100% of usability should be guaranteed as much as possible.
Data center is one of the facilities with the largest energy consumption in the world.
In the past 24 months, 91% of the data center has experienced unplanned stagnation.
The cost of each minute of stagnation of the data center will increase 41% on average.
Hotel and commercial complex are usually located at the urban central area. High electricity charge has increased the operation cost. Based on the peak load shifting plan of the conventional energy storage system, and according to policies of electricity fees and characteristic of user’s load, Wanke is trying to increasing users’ return of investment by optimizing accurate calculation.
Optimizing electricity charge cost
Increase IDC engine room profit
Deal with it business fluctuation
Stabilize load level
Improve backup reliability
Reduce the configuration of end cells
The project is located in Shanghai,The system lowers energy consumption for the data center through peak shaving, which provides support for the data center’s future exploration of a comprehensive energy storage system.
The project is located at the Xianghuayun axis center, Jiangning District, Nanjing City .The system operates in a “energy storage + power backup ” mode for use in the data center which developing a new path for efficienct behind-the-meter energy storage development.
