As the market leader in energy storage, Stem has unmatched experience in solar plus storage deployments. Our Athena smart energy software optimizes and automates interactions between solar, storage, and the grid, bringing our customers more savings and greater project ROI.
Storage’s ability to “time-shift” solar is key for developers seeking to maximize ROI from solar projects. Storage makes solar dispatchable, enabling it to earn more revenue in wholesale markets. For businesses, solar by itself reduces total costs on a utility bill, while storage reduces expensive demand charges and protects the value of the solar investment against shifting rate structures.
Battery storage enables you to use solar power even when the PV system is not actively generating due to time of day or weather conditions. This flexibility reduces your overall reliance on fossil fuels and can help attain long- and short-term sustainability goals.
Pairing solar with storage greatly improves the ability of solar power to provide clean backup power in the event of a grid outage. Stem’s Athena software optimizes any viable combination of onsite energy resources, including solar PV, to help customers achieve the energy resilience they want.
Stem’s AI-driven leading energy storage software, Athena®, combined with AlsoEnergy’s edge-to-cloud clean energy optimization software, PowerTrack, provides a complete solution for managing intelligent and profitable energy assets. Together, our integrated clean energy intelligence platform controls, monitors, and manages solar + storage assets.
