Battery storage is fundamentally changing many parts of our energy system, but one area where
it can have the biggest impact is behind the meter (BTM) in a commercial or industrial (C&I) setting. C&I enterprises frequency face large energy bills and BTM battery storage can help address this issue in several ways, including:
+ Avoiding electricity network charges.
+ Benefiting from tariff differences.
+ Delivering value-added grid services.
+ Enhancing on-premise energy use.
This brief guide looks at each of these areas in turn and outlines the ways in which BTM battery owners and operators can save money and create value through their energy storage assets. It uses examples from the UK electricity market, although similar opportunities will likely apply elsewhere.
