Wells engineering resource involvement quickly grew to include supply of a trial site for the project, 24/7 monitoring of the equipment, data collection and analysis, and the development of a prototype domestic energy management device to augment the systems already in the project.
16 months down the track, trials are still running and data still being gathered, in some cases on a 10 second basis, from which much has already been learned, and further analysis will undoubtedly reveal even more, in the interests of better management of
PEAK POWER DEMAND
When one of New Zealand’s largest electricity and gas network companies wanted to trial experimental generation and energy storage systems to gauge their practicality in addressing peak demand on their electricity network, they contracted Wells’ engineering resource to provide engineering for the project...
