A solar installation can cut current electricity costs and provide clean energy for the future. Solar is the fastest-growing source of renewable power in the U.S. It is expected to account for over 60% of renewable growth over the next 5 years.
At Wesco, we partner with the world’s leading solar products and solutions providers. That includes manufacturers of photovoltaic modules, inverters, racking, balance of systems (BOS) and energy storage. Our unique supply chain value proposition has made us a vendor of choice for residential and commercial contractors, installers, and utilities.
The energy storage market is growing at a rapid rate. Battery storage technologies have been around since the 1930s. But growing demand for clean energy solutions has increased interest in the United States.
Energy storage currently makes up approximately 2% of U.S. generation capacity. In 2020, the market surpassed $1.5 billion. Markets for electrical energy storage are projected to reach $8.9 billion annually by 2026. With this significant growth, contractors must understand commercial energy storage solutions.
The electrification of transportation will lead to a steep rise in electric vehicle (EV) energy consumption and the need for chargers, as well as the infrastructure to support them. Electric vehicles remain an increasingly crucial component in the effort to reduce carbon emissions. By the year 2025 UBS forecasts that 20% of global new car sales will be EV, and 50 % by 2030.
With electric vehicle demand continuing to expand, charging equipment manufacturers, automakers, utilities, municipalities, and government agencies are rapidly establishing a national network of charging infrastructure. With $7.5 billion allocated for a national network of EV charging stations through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, EV charging in the US is primed for rapid growth.
Microgrids are stand-alone electrical systems consisting of multiple generating sources and defined loads that can operate independently from the primary utility grid. They provide a reliable, efficient solution to unexpected power loss effectively balancing spikes in energy demand. Optimize energy usage for more reliable power, reduced operating costs and lower carbon emissions. Microgrid solutions help companies facilitate electrical energy savings and resiliency.
Microgrids have been around for decades, but in recent years multiple factors have increased the demand and urgency of this solution. With new energy management technologies and renewable resources, the ability to offset costs through demand response and peak shaving is becoming more and more readily available.
An energy management process should account for energy sources, energy usage, and cost-effective solutions to connect them. Renewable power generation, energy storage solutions, and innovative technologies that control and reduce energy consumption give decision-makers options.
Wesco Success Story
An automotive parts manufacturer needed a high-level energy management strategy for multiple facilities. Wesco began with a comprehensive audit to identify energy and cost-saving opportunities. By implementing Wesco’s recommendations, the manufacturer achieved significant reductions in operating costs and energy usage.
