Energy Toolbase announced a platform integration with Enel X North America, giving project developers the ability to run storage dispatch simulations and savings analyses on the ETB Developer platform that are representative of how Enel X storage solutions will operate in the field. This will streamline the project development process for commercial project developers looking to model and deploy Enel X controlled storage systems.
“Commercial and industrial customers continue to play a leading role in the energy transition through the adoption of energy flexibility solutions like battery storage that deliver cost savings and help meet sustainability goals,” said Phil Martin, Vice President of Energy Storage at Enel X. “By bringing together Enel X’s energy storage expertise with Energy Toolbase’s leading platform, we’re providing our commercial solar developer partners a more seamless way to add storage to their projects with a powerful toolset to model, optimize and close projects.”
Enel X, the Enel Group’s advanced energy services business line, brings more than 20 years of energy industry domain expertise, with an energy storage portfolio spanning over 110 MW worldwide. The company deploys standalone storage and solar-plus-storage projects, having deployed projects of differing sizes for a variety of customers and industry types.
Enel X’s DER.OS powers the energy storage system by coordinating system dispatch and maximizing the savings from batteries, solar, backup generation, electric vehicle charging, and other distributed energy resources. DER.OS uses advanced machine and patented technology to optimize across multiple value streams to predict system peaks, analyze grid conditions, forecast facility load, store excess on-site solar energy, and participate in utility grid services programs such as demand response.
The ETB Developer software platform is a leading tool for performing utility rate and financial analysis of solar and energy storage projects. The platform provides precise calculations of utility costs, energy savings, and project economics. ETB Developer leverages an in-house utility rates team to ensure accurate and accountable utility costs and savings projections for both solar and energy storage projects.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
