Future Proof InvestmentFirmly grounded in the Present, GEM Energy keeps a keen eye on the Future.
Solar and Renewable Energy Technology in Australia is still only in its infancy.
Other nations are much more advanced, but we are catching up steadily. GEM Energy understands this shift to Renewables. Our staff have worked in the European and American solar industries for many years, putting us firmly on the cutting edge of solar system design in Australia.
We like keeping one eye on the future, especially in regards to rapidly evolving battery technology, and one eye in the present, where we provide our customers with innovative turn-key solutions that deliver returns from day one.
GEM Energy already has extensive experience with large-scale battery storage systems.
Large battery systems are slowly catching on in Australia. They are charged with either cheaper off-peak grid power or solar power, and the stored energy will then be used to effectively ‘peak shave.’
Peak shaving is an important concept that is not very well-known in Australia yet. It flattens out the power consumption profile of your business and can be used to reduce the expensive demand charges that occur when power consumption peaks as circled in the Energy Consumption graph below.
Financially, Peak Shaving is extremely viable.
In overseas markets like Japan, America, and Germany, battery storage investments received Government subsidies of up to 50% in recent years. A massive increase in demand followed, which in turn rapidly improved battery technology.
And with all these improvements, GEM Energy feels confident to offer the latest battery technology for the Australian market. These battery storage solutions include Gel or Lead-Acid batteries as well as Lithium-Ion.
