Ensure that "energy storage" doesn't equal "emissions storage"
Energy storage is popular with consumers, corporate buyers, and regulators partly because of its widely recognized potential to integrate renewable energy and reduce emissions. But more and more research finds that most energy storage projects in the U.S. today are actually increasing emissions, due to a lack of available real-time and forecasted emissions information. WattTime's flexible Automated Emissions Reduction (AER) solution solves this problem by allowing energy storage projects to co-optimize their charge and discharge cycles with a marginal emissions signal.
Real-Time and Forecasted Marginal Emissions Rates
Proactive Regulatory Compliance
“Our energy storage solutions are helping to guide customers into the energy transition in a way that benefits their businesses and allows them to find opportunity where others find roadblocks. One of those opportunities is the chance to take a big bite out of carbon emissions, and with WattTime’s data we can optimize our batteries to do just that.” - Tucker Ruberti, Director of Technical Sales, Enel X
The California PUC recognizes that storage emissions is a problem and has proposed a policy based on a real-time marginal emissions signal to energy storage companies, in service of the state moving closer to reaching its ambitious carbon neutrality goal.Read Article
