As partners for over two years, Stem and Royal Industrial Solutions have continually enhanced their expertise in assisting customers with utility bill optimization, resiliency, and energy security. Stem’s AI-driven Athena platform and Royal’s industrial automation and sustainable power solutions capabilities create compelling synergy, particularly for commercial and industrial (C&I) customers.
In this informative Q&A blog post, catch up with Stem and Royal, revisiting their successful partnership and delving into the valuable insights they offer in sustainable energy solutions. Read on to better understand our collaborative efforts and how we empower customers to achieve their energy goals.
How does Royal Industrial Solutions collaborate with industrial customers to optimize energy usage and reduce utility expenses?
Royal Industrial Solutions works closely with our industrial customers to optimize energy usage and reduce utility expenses through our automation and power solutions expertise. We offer hardware and software related to industrial automation, including SCADA and dashboard monitoring systems and intelligent motor control centers. By designing and implementing efficient systems, Royal helps customers proactively manage utility expenses and view them as controllable variable costs rather than fixed costs.
Explain the role of energy storage systems in addressing power quality issues and ensuring energy security for manufacturing plants?
Energy storage systems are crucial in addressing power quality issues and ensuring energy security for manufacturing plants. Royal assists customers in implementing energy storage solutions that can inject or compensate for sags or fluctuations in grid power, particularly for plants located in areas with unreliable grids. These systems provide a reliable and clean power source during outages or downtime events, mitigating the risk of revenue loss and reducing wear and tear on backup generators.
What are the key benefits of implementing a microgrid configuration, and what factors should industrial customers consider when adopting one?
Microgrid configurations offer several benefits for industrial customers. They provide greater control and resilience by allowing the option to operate critical processes independently of the utility grid. Royal helps customers evaluate the specific needs of their site, considering factors such as critical loads and desired level of independence. Whether for running critical processes or the entire site in island mode, Royal ensures customers have a well-designed microgrid solution tailored to their requirements.
How does Royal’s partnership with Stem contribute to fostering innovation in the industry, specifically in energy security, reliability, and redundancy?
Stem’s expertise in energy storage systems aligns well with Royal’s focus on optimizing energy usage and implementing sustainable solutions. By leveraging Stem’s advanced AI-powered energy management capabilities, Royal can offer customers intelligent energy storage solutions that enhance power quality, enable demand response participation, and provide reliable backup power for critical operations.
Can you discuss the importance of educating industrial customers about the benefits of energy storage and how it can help them make strategic decisions for their energy needs?
Educating industrial customers about the benefits of energy storage is a crucial aspect of Royal’s approach. We emphasize how energy storage systems can help customers manage their power effectively, avoid downtime, and address power quality issues. Royal helps customers deploy intelligent energy storage systems that proactively respond to events and optimize energy usage by analyzing on-site generation, grid conditions, and load patterns. This proactive approach ensures customers can make strategic decisions about their energy needs, unlocking benefits beyond utility cost reduction.
