Convergent is accelerating the clean energy transition through AI-powered energy storage. We have over a decade of expertise in financing, owning, and operating energy storage and solar-plus-storage systems for commercial and industrial facilities, including Fortune 100 businesses.
Why Energy Storage
Storing energy when it’s cheap and dispatching it when it’s expensive generates savings that impact your bottom line.
No Change to Operations
You don’t have to change anything about the way your facility runs; the battery just reduces cost.
Our energy storage solutions can respond in milliseconds, ensuring power consistency and quality during grid events.
Energy storage is used to store and dispatch renewable energy including solar and wind power.
Why Solar-Plus-Storage (Paired Solar PV and Battery Storage)?
If you’re thinking about solar energy, you should be thinking about energy storage, too. Here are the top three benefits of adding a battery energy storage system to your solar PV:
Use Solar When You Need it Most (Even if it’s Cloudy)
Supersize Your Solar
Manage Outages and Grid Interruptions
How Industrial-Scale Energy Storage Reduces Energy Costs and Carbon Emissions
Without energy storage (i.e., how the electric grid has been for the past century), electricity must be produced and consumed exactly at the same time. Energy storage systems allow energy to be stored when it is least expensive—and least carbon-intensive–and discharged—at the most expensive, carbon-heavy times. A win-win!
Today, the primary form of energy storage is Lithium-ion-based battery storage, the same technology as the batteries in our cell phones and electric vehicles … at a much larger scale.
Customer Spotlight: Shell New Energies
Shell New Energies selected Convergent to develop battery storage systems at two of their facilities. The systems reduce the consumption of energy for the facilities by up to one-third of typical demand while increasing the reliability and long-term sustainability of the grid. One of the systems is a 10 MW / 20 MWh battery energy storage project, which is one of the biggest behind-the-meter battery energy storage systems in North America.
Convergent is committed to the long-term success of our customers by financing, owning, and operating energy storage and solar-plus-storage systems on their behalf. Our contracts are performance-based, which means we only get paid if we create value. Additionally, our no-Capex service offering allows businesses to avoid tapping into capital budgets while sharing in the cost savings we deliver.
