Retrofitting battery storage to solar PV asset

Published February 2017

Everoze was delighted to advise Bristol Energy Cooperative on the technical and economic feasibility of retrofitting battery storage to a solar PV asset being considered for acquisition. The feasibility study included a review of grid import and export capacities at the site, local network constraints, site layout considerations and an assessment of high potential revenue streams and revenue stacking strategies.

Andy O’Brien, director of Bristol Energy Cooperative, commented: “The Everoze team provided concise, targeted and highly useful input which added real value to our decision-making process. It’s great to see a leading energy consultancy such as Everoze taking community energy seriously.”
