Distribution & Logistics
Distribution and logistics businesses rely on efficiency and uninterrupted operations to meet the expectations of their customers, making a reliable power supply essential.
Without a reliable power supply, businesses may struggle to meet increased demand and operate reliably. There are a range of types of power disruptions that can affect businesses in this sector, including blackouts, brownouts, voltage spikes and dips, and fluctuations in power supply. With a growing risk of localised blackouts and other forms of power disruption, it is more important than ever to ensure your productivity, equipment, and operations are not affected by costly downtime.
How to Achieve Resilient Power for Your Distribution or Logistics Site
This can protect your site from the risk of power cuts and other forms of power disruption that could cause critical equipment to fail and restart, such as automated picking and packing technologies.
By rapidly switching to stored energy in the event of a power disruption being detected, a battery system intervenes to take over from the grid and supply the required power. This prevents disruption to your site to allow operations to continue uninterrupted, until a grid connection can be re-established.
By installing this technology, you can avoid the risks to your business associated with a loss of power, such as temporary closures, process disruption or orders being delayed.
Achieving Net Zero in Distribution and Logistics
Logistics UK launched its ‘Route to Net Zero’ campaign in November 2021, which calls on businesses within the sector to lay out their own plans for net zero. With increasing numbers of large businesses looking to address their Scope 3 emissions, those that originate in their value chain, bolstering your sustainability is vital for logistics and distribution providers to maintain working relationships with key customers.
A battery energy storage system (BESS) can play a key role in delivering this goal. This technology enables you to fully protect your site from potential power disruptions, while simultaneously driving your net zero goals through maximising renewable generation and energy efficiency, and supporting EV charging initiatives.
