Protect your business from fluctuating energy costs and reduce carbon emissions
Anesco is the premier authority on solar energy storage systems for business and investor-led projects.
Having made history in 2014, by connecting the UK’s first utility scale battery storage unit, and with 150MW of energy storage to date, the company is on target to deliver 380MW by the end of 2020– which is equivalent to the power needed to run over 9,200 businesses annually*.
Battery storage offers protection from fluctuating energy prices
For most companies’ energy bills are a significant expense and taking steps to better manage your energy use, as well as reducing carbon emissions, can directly impact your cost structure, competitiveness, reputation and CSR credentials.
Commercial battery storage is set to play a major role in the global energy mix in the future and, when used in conjunction with renewable technologies such as commercial solar PV (photovoltaic) system, it can help manage and protect your business from fluctuating energy costs and reduce its carbon emissions.
What are energy storage systems and how do they work?
Renewable energy storage, also known as Energy Storage Systems (ESS) is an advanced green technology.
Most systems use lithium-ion chemistry and work by capturing and storing energy generated from renewable technologies, these can include solar, wind, biomass and wave.
The batteries can also work independently of a renewable energy source, by storing cheaper energy from the grid which can then be released and redistributed across a business when it is most needed.
By allowing your battery to support the National Grid through the ‘balancing mechanism’ additional revenue can be generated.
Energy storage systems do not produce any emissions during operation and therefore contribute toward the binding climate change and emissions targets that the UK has committed to under the Climate Change Act 2008.
Commercial solar battery storage
In the case of a roof top or ground mount solar PV system, the energy captured by the panels during daylight hours can be stored by the battery which can then be used to power your business during peak high tariff times, when energy purchased from the grid is at a premium, or at night.
Is battery storage right for your business?
To understand whether battery storage is right for your business, you need to consider your current energy usage. Anesco, will work with you to examine your current energy consumption, before creating a strategy that includes system sizing to ensure it will meet the demands of your business.

A source of clean energy
- Lithium-ion chemistry works to capture, and store energy generated from renewable technologies, including solar, wind and biomass.
- With battery storage cheaper energy from the grid can be stored, released and redistributed when it is most needed.
- Battery storage can support the National Grid through the ‘balancing mechanism’ allowing for more revenue to be generated.
What is the future of battery storage in the UK?
Our CEO Mark Futyan took part in an expert panel discussion recently, exploring the ‘coming of age’ of energy storage in the UK and in particular, what the key challenges and opportunities are and how the market is expected to evolve moving forward. He shares his thoughts here.
Investor appetite continues to grow for battery storage
Back in May, I was delighted to take part in an Inspiratia hosted expert panel discussion, exploring the ‘coming of age’ of energy storage in the UK. Building on those conversations, the panel regrouped this week, looking in more detail at the ongoing challenges and opportunities faced by the sector.
