Our Enterprise Team at Energy Toolbase plays a key role in developing and maintaining a pipeline of renewable developer accounts. With the energy storage market expanding and more investments and incentives being implemented to strengthen the market, we know there is a significant need for experts and consultants to assist and guide developers. The Enterprise Team works closely with solar + storage developers, engineering firms, financial institutions, equipment manufacturers, utilities, and facility owners to model, deploy, and monitor advanced renewable projects and develop energy storage projects paired with ourAcumen EMS™ controls software.
The Role of the Enterprise Team
As ETB expands its product offering and our fleet of Acumen EMS energy storage projects grows, we’ve put together a team to help steer the direction and strategy of Energy Toolbase. The Enterprise Team prioritizes the sustainability of our long-term business relationships, product road-mapping, and exploring new ways to identify unique business opportunities, making them a unique team. The team coordinates RFP communications, new hardware partnerships, opportunities for technology integrations, and consulting engagements that typically have longer sales cycles or more complex structures.
The team also understands that the battery market is fast-paced and ever-changing. That’s why they help create industry-leading solutions that accommodate those changes and build them to support developers within these new markets with the latest programs and incentives. They work closely with our Product and Engineering teams to help guide the direction of our products and help implement new features and functionalities that will accommodate different markets.
With broad insight into the energy storage industry, our team has access to real-time data from projects in operation along with the current updates in technology and programs. Whether you need resiliency, long-duration storage, or UL9540-certified systems, our team maintains partnerships with many battery storage vendors that they can recommend to assist you in meeting the needs of your diverse project portfolio. The team also focuses on frontier market research, consulting, and analysis on the newest technology-like microgrid projects, flow batteries, demand response, EV charging, and more. The Enterprise team also works closely with our Grid Services group, a team of market experts dedicated to helping you identify the value of ancillary services such as frequency regulation, spinning reserves, forward capacity & wholesale markets.
Unique Services We Provide for Storage Developers and the Market
At Energy Toolbase, we value our customers and work to build an overall experience that is seamless and efficient to help you understand your project needs and implement a strategy to help you get those projects deployed. The team is here to assist in creating and reviewing project models with you using ourETB Developer platform, a leading solution for modeling and cost avoidance calculations to determine the project’s economics. By running simulations through our platform, you extract more value by modeling with our Acumen EMS, meaning you use the same machine learning and control logic in your model and in the field at deployment. Energy Toolbase takes a lifecycle approach, and we keep this data and performance metrics easily accessible within ourETB Monitor portal, which is a robust asset monitoring platform that is directly connected to your modeling and control software.
