Battery energy storage systems, coupled with a proper application of the new regulations from the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) established in Grid Code 2.0, are paving the way for a more stable future for the electric grid in Mexico.

A Cleaner and More Efficient National Electrical System

The primary goal of this Grid Code 2.0, published on December 31, 2021, is to consolidate a cleaner and more efficient National Electrical System (SEN). Therefore, high and medium voltage companies and industries must comply with technical requirements regarding scope, evaluation, voltage, short-circuit testing, power factor, load current, voltage imbalance, current imbalance, total harmonic distortion in demand, among others.

In addition to complying with this new regulation and meeting all the requirements of the Grid Code to avoid fines, companies with high energy consumption will find in storage the ideal system to ensure continuous energy supply in their facilities, use cleaner energy, reduce their energy costs, and guarantee greater energy efficiency in their processes, thus complying with the Grid Code.

Storage: The Answer for Continuous Supply

The stability of the electric grid benefits the SEN, and energy storage helps ensure the continuity of the supply of cleaner and higher-quality electrical energy while also contributing to avoiding power outages and increasing renewable energy generation, which is produced intermittently.

The company with the most experience and quality assurance in the country regarding energy storage is Quartux, an innovative technology company that designs, installs, and operates battery energy storage systems.

By analyzing and meeting the specific energy backup requirements of each user, the Quartux team meets the needs of each of its clients by providing instant backups in the event of power outages and ensuring intelligent energy consumption, reflected in their electricity costs.

Although the profiles of those who contract a battery energy storage system vary greatly, one of the sectors most interested in this type of solution is the industrial/commercial sector. Energy storage has become a great option for industries as it is the sector that pays the highest tariffs; therefore, they seek to save on their electricity bills and store cheap energy that they can use during the most expensive hours of the CFE.

Additionally, industries consume more than half of the electrical energy supplied throughout the country, and their energy consumption represents a third of total expenses in industries such as manufacturing and mining.

Quartux has the smart solution for network users

In a country with a 3% annual increase in electricity demand like Mexico, systems like Quartux’s become a response that benefits the entire electricity supply network: by not consuming energy during times of the day when transmission network capacity is maxed out, the electric grid benefits, and production becomes more efficient.

Energy storage is an intelligent solution that allows users to increase their business opportunities while complying with the Grid Code. These systems change users’ consumption curve and promote savings of up to 40% in electricity costs, as well as guaranteeing protection against interruptions in the electrical grid. This solves a problem that the country’s industrial sector constantly faces with power outages that disrupt and affect business productivity.

A storage system like Quartux’s helps make energy consumption more efficient through intelligent platform technology, perfectly designed for each client. In addition, the specialists working at this 100% Mexican company know the market prices, understand its nature, and the impact of network congestion on energy costs, thus providing new solutions for the benefit of their clients, whether users or energy generation centers, which represent direct economic bonuses for them.

Combining compliance with the Grid Code with the smart solution represented by battery energy storage systems for network users has become a first step toward a more reliable and much more stable electrical grid, with less risk of power outages, benefiting both generating users and load centers.
