Feasibility Analysis & Functional Specification (BESS / Co-Gen )

Non-Utility BESS & Co-Gen Systems for the purposes of behind-the-meter demand offset to reduce GA charges is a concept that has only come to prominence in Ontario in the last couple of years. As a result, there are some misconceptions and a need for deeper understanding of various deployment strategies, as there are usually multiple tie-in approaches, immediate and long-term strategy, as well as potential impacts on customer's facility itself.

Number of Our clients have chosen a Proactive Approach to address these issues ahead of BESS / Co-Gen project itself, thereby significantly reducing project timeline and uncertainties, increasing customer's financial and operational benefits and expedite Management Approval to position the Project to be a truly successful endeavor.
