【March 15, Taipei】Achieving net-zero emission goals across industries heavily depends on maximizing energy efficiency for carbon reduction. NextDrive is set to reveal a cutting-edge corporate emission reduction solution, Multi-Energy AI Forecasting, at the ‘2050 Net Zero City Exhibition,’ on March 19th to 22nd, aiming to optimize the behind-the-meter energy storage through artificial intelligence, assisting enterprises in bolstering their proportion of green energy adoption and utilization of renewable energy. Based on estimates of real-world solar storage projects, commercial and industrial electricity consumers could potentially witness a 17% increase in annual electricity cost savings after implementation, along with a substantial enhancement in green electricity integration.

 

In response to the continuous attention in energy emission reduction within industries, focus has shifted from the utilization of low-energy consumption equipment to maximizing renewable energy. Therefore, NextDrive introduced an innovative solution in behind-the-meter energy storage, which aids in boosting the proportion of green electricity in energy portfolios and enhancing power distribution strategies. NextDrive emphasized that behind-the-meter energy storage represents an advanced approach, in which ‘by retaining green energy within the resources of power dispatch and employing AI and systems as core, whether it’s optimizing electricity costs, reducing penalties for exceeding contracts, or maximizing the proportion of green energy, instructions can be issued efficiently to arrange resources across the entire field, enabling real-time and precise decision-making.’ 

 

NextDrive introduces its ‘Multi-Energy AI Forecasting’, leading the industry in merging solar energy prediction and load forecast technology. With the implementation of AI, this innovation directly impacts the accuracy of energy data assessment, making abrupt improvements in scheduling efficiency. Empirical calculations based on the real-world conditions demonstrate the superiority of the ‘Multi-Energy AI Forecasting’ over existing market models as it enables consumers to realize tangible cost-saving benefits, especially as surplus electricity declines, resulting in almost 2% increase in renewable energy utilization and overall reduction in grid electricity consumption. NextDrive emphasizes that ‘benefits derive from data-driven insights,’ making the behind-the meter energy storage a profitable investment. 

 

In addition, NextDrive has introduced the ‘Multi-Site Energy Management’ solution to encourage more industries to participate in emission reduction endeavors. This not only enables logistic and retail service sectors to initiate net-zero strategies, but also promotes a group-oriented organizational structure. Both headquarters and branch stores have the flexibility to select system management monitoring interfaces customized to their operational requirements.

 

Building Infrastructure for Energy Service Providers: Smart Meter to Cloud Data

 

With extensive experience in energy technology validation across Japan and Taiwan, NextDrive will be announcing multiple net-zero cases such as isolated island microgrids and near-net-zero demonstration sites. Moreover, NextDrive is releasing comprehensive technical solutions encompassing smart energy gateways compatible with communication protocols from Japan, Taiwan, and the US, diverse energy data API services, as well as the Route B meter communication module, which is currently the only device to pass the Taiwan Power Company’s compliance testing. The overall aim is to consolidate their expertise in integrating energy data from meters to the cloud, establishing a foundational infrastructure for industry-wide energy application services.
