Honeywell has announced its Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) Platform, which integrates Honeywell asset monitoring, distributed energy resource management, supervisory control and analytics functionality. This will enable organisations to accurately forecast and optimise their overall energy use.
Honeywell’s BESS Platform leverages best practices for energy management such as energy arbitrage and demand management to deliver flexibility and control of when energy is purchased and used.
The platform is ideal for a wide range of commercial and industrial companies, independent power producers and utilities. The BESS Platform is backed by Honeywell performance-based guarantees, which include predictable and consistent costs along with improved uptime.
“In the Middle East, organisations are setting ambitious goals to advance the energy transition, by increasing the share of renewable and clean energy,” said Hesham Tashkandi, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies, Middle East.
“Honeywell’s Battery Energy Storage System Platform will help solve a critical challenge in effectively integrating higher shares of solar energy in power systems that is being increasingly generated in the region, while also optimising the use of non-renewables.”
Honeywell’s BESS Platform improves grid stability and sustainability while decreasing supply costs. If a generator fails or goes offline for any reason, the platform reduces the need to bring additional, non-renewable power generators online.
In this scenario, a remote facility can maintain operations as the platform runs in parallel with traditional generators. The system can then restart the disconnected generator or initiate back-up generator sets before returning to standby mode.
In addition, the BESS Platform can reduce the need for non-renewable power sources such as gas turbines and diesel generators and their associated high gas consumption rates, contributing to a smaller carbon footprint.
Honeywell will support customers with a variety of solutions, including small pilot projects and programmes covering multiple sites.-- TradeArabia News Service
