ENERGY STORAGE DEVELOPMENT PRACTICE

EIP Partners with Renewable Energy Developers and Leads All Aspects of Energy Storage Project Development

Falling capital costs, shifting delivery and usage patterns, and an increasing reliance on renewable resources are driving a huge opportunity for stationary energy storage. Power providers and system operators see energy storage as a way to shave peak demand, improve reliability, manage supply/demand fluctuations and avoid costly system upgrades. Commercial and Industrial customers see the opportunity to improve business continuity, lower demand charges, and reduce their carbon footprint. To fully capitalize on these opportunities, technical, business, and regulatory risks must be assessed in a comprehensive way and decisions must be navigated carefully. To this end, EIP serves as a valuable resource for clients and partners looking to leverage energy storage advances and participate in emerging market opportunities. EIP also partners with solar, wind, and hydro developers to integrate energy storage into their projects.
