The transformation of the energy system is a challenge for both energy suppliers and the manufacturing industry. In particular, the increased generation of energy from unreliable and weather-related renewable energies poses new challenges to the interaction between electricity generation and demand. Since the generation of renewable energies can only be adapted to electricity demand in a limited extent, more and more flexibility is also required on the part of electricity consumers, so called demand side management. For companies in the manufacturing sector, there are new opportunities to generate additional revenue if they are able to provide flexibility within their industrial production processes and reduce energy demand. This is often related to changes in production lines and processes which can lead to additional costs and inefficiencies. On the other hand, there are processes that cannot be operated flexibly. Therefore, we are considering a battery system within production facilities to optimize the load from the grid instead of investing in solutions such as smart energy and load management to meet the flexibility requirements of the electricity system.
