Long-duration energy storage enables businesses and communities to gain self-reliance, by accessing stable and affordable clean power whenever it’s needed.
Clean energy independence means leaving behind an unreliable grid and expensive diesel back-up supply, reducing the risk of interruptions and power outages, and eliminating unmanageable price spikes.
TES.POD technology can be scaled for projects of 0.1 to 100 MW – with an initial focus of up to 20 MW – to supply clean heat and electricity around the clock.
Read a case study about agriculture in North America.
Agriculture is, in many ways, an electricity intensive process. From lighting, heating and cooling, to ventilation, irrigation, grain drying and efficient feed lines. The sector has a great dependence on reliable, controllable, and affordable clean power – at all hours of the day.
The following case is based upon a real poultry farm in California, USA, with a 2,102 MWh annual energy baseload demand and local conditions, GHI: 1,889 kWh/M2/year. An Azelio TES.POD cluster of 20 units, in combination with solar PV, is recommended.
A poultry and egg production farm in California has elevated energy costs, comprised of power purchased from an unreliable grid, and propane. Azelio’s TES.POD provides clean energy independence by charging from solar PV and delivering power around the clock – reducing costly tariffs, eliminating power outages and significantly decreasing CO2 emissions.
Replacing an unstable grid with Azelio’s long-duration renewable energy storage is cost competitive, reliable and sustainable.
Here are the benefits for the poultry and egg production farm in California.
TES.POD operates off-grid, providing a reliable and continuous energy supply at all hours of the day. The solution has a low environmental impact, with zero CO2 emissions, and is 99% recyclable. Effectively lowering energy costs, TES.POD provides thermal energy that can also be used for pre-heating processes, leading to significant natural gas savings.
Welcome to energy self-reliance, through cutting edge long-duration storage.
Farming often takes place in remote locations, far from the grid. Businesses are operating with an unreliable grid access, fluctuating tariffs and high fixed costs. In some areas, wildfires or other disasters can damage grid infrastructure and cause delays and energy supply interruptions. To avoid downtime, farms often use wood fuel or a diesel generator back-up, adding cost and hindering progress on sustainability goals.
Clean energy independence with TES.POD enables farmers to access a localised supply, while hedging electricity prices and reducing network charges. TES.POD can be co-owned by several farms, with clean electricity and heat distributed to multiple owners.
The world is electrifying fast, but there are still many areas where the population is spread over a large geographical area and centralised power generation is not economically or technically viable. As pressure increases on the grid, there is unreliable delivery of critical energy, with high electricity bills for end-users. Communities tend to rely on diesel as a back-up, increasing cost and creating emissions.
For communities to develop and grow – establishing new industrial and commercial projects that will aid prosperity – they need a resilient energy supply. TES.POD offers clean energy independence as a long-term investment with a short payback, to lower cost and provide reliable, clean electricity for decades.
Mining often takes place in remote or off-grid areas, where it’s a challenge to secure a stable grid connection. With limited water supply and harsh geographical conditions also part of the equation, as well as the fact that short-term projects may need to relocate, mining is an industry in need of a flexible and reliable energy supply. As mining businesses look to reduce their environmental impact, to obtain a social license for operation, and strive for decarbonisation – the time is now to embrace a viable renewable energy technology.
TES.POD is a scalable and modular solution, which can be easily relocated during its 30 year lifetime, and offers clean energy independence by supplying affordable heat and electricity with zero CO2 emissions.
The acute need for clean energy independence is not limited to North America – it’s a global issue. Wee Bee Ltd. is a mixed farming company in Coligny, Northwest Province, South Africa.
The company requires reliable and cost-effective power for poultry and seed processing. In 2021 Azelio signed a commercial order and will deliver 338 711 kWh/year, over 15 years, from solar PV and TES.POD energy storage units.
Through our comprehensive Service Portfolio – which focuses on installation, maintenance, performance monitoring and optimising solutions – Azelio will support Wee Bee Ltd. from the start of the project to the end of the installation lifetime.
