Hybrid Generation and Storage System

Hybrid Generation Systems

Combining the benefits of both the battery energy storage systems and our intelligent gas generation systems, we can offer a fully-hybridised package of measures that optimise your site’s electricity supply, maximising the potential financial and environmental savings.

Securing your energy supply will enable you to focus on your day-to-day activities and leave the energy to Ylem’s team of specialists.

Hybridised generation and storage solutions

Bringing together a unique package of measures, our hybrid approach to a site’s energy optimisation (behind or in front of the meter) combines the benefits from our generation and storage systems to lower costs, boost resilience and reduce emissions

These intelligent pre-packaged battery storage systems can boost a site’s resilience, storing energy that can also help avoid the use of costly peak-time tariffs and third-party charges by effectively time-shifting their demand. Furthermore, Ylem’s battery storage systems can also generate new sources of revenue by providing frequency response services to the grid at peak times.

 

Third-party charges


Third-party charges make over 50% of the cost of a commercial electricity supply invoice and these costs are forecast to continue rising in years to come.

During the peak times of the day –  between 4pm and 7pm Monday to Friday – the DUoS charges reach their highest level – with this being at its maximum during peak winter months. Furthermore, the three Triad periods will also have a large impact if electricity is imported during these times.


DUoS Band Charges
DUoS Charging Bands

As the above graphic shows, there can be a huge difference between the Red Band DUoS rate for peak-time electricity and the Green Band. Depending on the region and the time of year, it can be as much as nine times more expensive.


The wholesale cost element of a bill is unavoidable unless a company can generate its own energy, or simply reduce consumption. With many companies having already implemented energy efficiency measures, there’s opportunities for generation – of course depending on a site’s demand.

These third-party charges can, in many cases, be avoided and that’s where Ylem Energy can help ...

Typical I&C Customer Electricity Costs

How can Ylem's hybrid optimisation systems help?


With over three decades’ experience in smart generation, Ylem Energy specialises in delivering fully-financed smart and flexible energy generation systems that can optimise your site’s supply - helping lower energy costs, increasing reliability and even generating new sources of revenue.

The MCPD – Medium Combustion Plant Directive

The Medium Combustion Plant Directive - or more simply MCPD – is legislation designed to improve air quality for new and existing combustion plant and it can affect generators with an electrical output from around 400kW (thermal input from 1MW up to 50MW).

The MCPD’s Emissions Limit Values (or ELVs) focus on the concentration levels of sulphur dioxide (SO2), oxides of nitrogen (NOX), and particulates in exhaust gases from affected plant – plus they require monitoring of carbon monoxide levels (CO), but don’t limit it.

This does affect existing diesel generators and onerous emissions abatement requirements mean that with their low NOX and Particulate matter, our gas-fired generation systems are the perfect answer to compliance as their emissions fall within the permitted ELVs and you’ll avoid a costly upgrade bill.

The cost for upgrading an existing diesel generator to comply with MCPD can be significant ...

Energy Performance Contracts

Saving your business money and helping you reach your energy efficiency targets with our Energy Performance Contracts.

EPC or ESCo ...

With decades of experience and the confidence to guarantee our work, we are the trusted ESCO/EPC experts. Saving you money and helping reach your energy efficiency targets, we custom-build innovative solutions to meet the exact requirements of your business.

We can provide long-term energy services through the ESCo and this could entail us operate and maintain the services for the lifetime of the contract. This can include the design, supply, installation and financing for the services.

This is a specific type of ESCo where we implement and maintain measures at one or more sites to reduce energy, water and/or maintenance costs – similar to an ESCo. The difference being that we guarantee the savings from these measures for the duration of the contract.

Energy Management Solutions

Our Services

In order to achieve this, we offer the following services:

Energy Surveys

From an initial survey through to more in-depth full investment grade audits (IGA) we can help you identify the potential for energy saving measures and work to produce an Energy Performance Contract (EPC). We offer:

This survey identifies opportunities to save energy and the potential to develop an EPC, which helps you reduce costs. To complete an opportunity survey, we review energy data and conduct a site visit, a process that usually lasts one to three days.

Based on the findings of the opportunity survey, or if you have already identified a potential scheme, we prepare for you an Investment Grade Audit (IGA). This gives you all the information you need to build a business case for an EPC and secure buy-in from all relevant players in your organisation. With an IGA, we dive deeper and review your energy data; operating and maintenance manuals (O&Ms); backlog maintenance; estate strategy; organisational values and culture; funding requirements; and general information.

Design and Installation

We offer a wide range of design and installation works, including:

Air-source heat pump (ASHP) Automated metering and targeting (AMT) Backlog maintenance Battery and standby generation / storage Building Energy Management and Monitoring Systems (BEMS) Biomass heating Building fabric upgrades Civil works (to support proposed interventions) Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Combined Cooling, Heat and Power (CCHP) Controls De-steam of site

Energy Centres Free cooling Fuel and oil storage District / community heating Energy efficient lighting and controls Ground source heat pumps (GSHP) Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) HV and LV systems Photo voltaics Prefabricated plantrooms Refurbishment Sustainable Transformation Plan (STP) integration Water efficiency Wind power

We can provide new, or refurbish and/or adopt existing equipment. Our work is carried out safely and planned to ensure that there is little or no disruption to your day-to-day business.

Behind-the-Meter Optimisation

Behind-the-Meter (BtM) Optimisation

With over three decades’ experience in smart generation, Ylem Energy specialises in delivering fully-financed smart and flexible energy generation and storage systems that can optimise your site’s supply - helping lower energy costs, increase reliability and even generate new sources of revenue.

The smart approach to energy

Electricity is the lifeblood of most organisations and having a reliable supply is essential to their smooth running - with the slightest disruption having a significant impact.

For those organisations requiring electricity to power energy-intensive processes, round-the-clock production lines or critical infrastructure the stakes are further raised.

In today’s complex and competitive electricity supply market, the cost of this essential resource continues to grow.

This, however, does not have to be the case…

 

Third-party charges


Third-party charges make over 50% of the cost of a commercial electricity supply invoice and these costs are forecast to continue rising in years to come.

During the peak times of the day –  between 4pm and 7pm Monday to Friday – the DUoS charges reach their highest level – with this being at its maximum during peak winter months. Furthermore, the three Triad periods will also have a large impact if electricity is imported during these times.

These third-party charges can, in many cases, be avoided and that’s where Ylem Energy can help ...

Typical I&C Customer Electricity Costs

Resilience


Whilst many sites are okay simply importing all of their power from a standard grid connection, organisations with critical requirements for continuity of supply – such as healthcare, data storage and critical production processes - they can often have back-up generation systems behind their half-hourly meter, enabling their supply to continue even if there’s disruption to the grid supply.

How can Ylem help?


With over three decades’ experience in smart generation, Ylem Energy specialises in delivering fully-financed smart and flexible energy generation systems that can optimise your site’s supply - helping lower energy costs, increasing reliability and even generating new sources of revenue.

How do we do this?


We have a number of solutions that can be used separately or combined together to produce hybrid systems that deliver significant benefits in terms of energy costs, security of supply and environmental benefits.

All of these solutions can either be fully funded by Ylem Energy with our Dynamic Power Purchase Agreement (DPPA), or on a traditional CapEx basis – to meet a client’s specific requirements. Unlike many others in the industry, we don’t just use software and controls to achieve this optimisation, we employ one or more of our smart energy generation assets to deliver tangible savings.


  • Battery Energy Storage Systems (BEES)

    Our intelligent pre-packaged battery storage systems can boost a site’s resilience, storing energy that can also help avoid the use of costly peak-time tariffs and third-party charges by effectively time-shifting their demand.

    Furthermore, Ylem’s battery storage systems can also generate new sources of revenue by providing frequency response services to the grid at peak times.

  • Gas Generation Systems

    Providing a vital back-up service to your site in the case of disruption to the grid supply, our intelligent gas generation systems can also be used to lowering your requirements during peak times – minimising third-party charges. There may also be opportunities for exporting surplus power to the grid and generate additional revenue.

    Additionally our generation systems offer a cost-effective compliance with the MCPD’s emission limit values.

  • Hybrid Generation and Storage

    Combining the benefits of both the battery energy storage systems and our intelligent gas generation systems, we can offer a fully-hybridised package of measures that optimise your site’s electricity supply, maximising the potential financial and environmental savings.
