Battery energy storage: towards a more stable grid

Battery energy storage systems, together with the proper application of the new Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) regulations established in the Grid Code 2.0, provide a glimpse of a more stable future for Mexico's electricity grid.

A cleaner and more efficient National Electric System

The main objective of this Grid Code 2.0, which was published on December 31, 2021, is to consolidate a cleaner and more efficient National Electric System (SEN); therefore, high and medium voltage companies and industries must comply with technical requirements regarding scope, evaluation, voltage, short circuit tests, power factor, load current, voltage unbalance, current unbalance, total harmonic distortion on demand, among others.

In addition to complying with this new regulation and complying with all the requirements of the Grid Code to avoid being subject to fines. Companies with high energy consumption will find in storage the ideal system to guarantee continuous energy supply in their facilities, use cleaner energy, reduce their energy costs, and will have the guarantee of greater energy efficiency in their processes, thus complying with the Grid Code.

Storage: the answer to continuous supply

The stability of the electrical grid benefits the SEN and energy storage helps to guarantee the continuity of the supply of cleaner and better quality electrical energy, at the same time that it contributes to avoid blackouts and helps to increase the generation of renewable energies, which are produced intermittently.

The most experienced and quality-assured energy storage company in the country is Quartux, an innovative technology company that designs, installs and operates lithium-ion battery energy storage systems.

By analyzing and complying with the specific energy storage characteristics required by each user, Quartux's equipment satisfies the needs of each of its clients, generating instantaneous backups in case of blackouts and guaranteeing intelligent energy consumption, which is reflected in their electricity costs.

Although the profiles of those who contract a battery energy storage system are very varied, one of the sectors with the greatest interest in this type of solution is the industrial/commercial sector. Energy storage has become a great option for the industrial sector because it is the sector that pays the highest rates, therefore, they are looking to save on their electricity bills and save cheap energy that can be used during the most expensive hours of the CFE. 

In addition, industries consume more than half of the electricity supplied throughout the country and their energy consumption represents a third of the total expenses in industries such as manufacturing and mining.

Quartux has the smart solution for network users

In a country with a power demand that increases 3% every year, such as Mexico, systems like Quartux's become an answer that benefits the entire power grid: by not consuming energy at times of the day when the capacity of the transmission grids is limited, the power grid benefits and production becomes more efficient.

Energy storage is a smart solution that allows users to increase their business opportunities while complying with the Grid Code. These systems change the consumption curve of users and lead to savings of up to 40% in the cost of electricity, in addition to guaranteeing protection against interruptions in the power grid. This solves a problem that the country's industrial sector is constantly facing, with blackouts that interrupt and affect the productivity of companies.

A storage system such as Quartux's helps to make energy consumption more efficient through the technology of an intelligent platform, perfectly designed for each client. In addition, the specialists working in this 100% Mexican company know the market prices, understand its nature and the impact of grid congestion on the costs of the energy consumed, so they provide new solutions for the benefit of their customers, whether they are users or power generation centers, which represent direct economic bonuses for them.

Combining compliance with the Grid Code with the intelligent solution that battery energy storage systems represent for grid users has become a first step towards a more reliable and much more stable power grid, with less risk of blackouts, to the benefit of power generation users and load centers.
