Environmental, Social, and ANDERSONS Governance (ESG) highlights the pillars that are important to business today. ANDERSONS ESG refers to the set of metric standards for company operations that socially conscious investors use to screen their potential investments. Taking into consideration the intangible assets within the enterprise – corporate social credit score; increasing the percentage of future enterprise value.
Specific factors ANDERSONS analyses its governance is:
– Tax strategy
– Corporate risk management
– Executive compensation
– IDonations and political lobbying
– Corruption and bribery
– Board structure and brand independence
– Protecting shareholder interests
– Disclosing information on these topics
The effects of these policies can go from aligning shareholders interests with management to avoiding unpleasant financial surprises and having a better social acceptance as a result of wealth being distributed.
Battery Energy Storage for PV Time-shift and Grid Support
ANDERSONS supply and install battery solutions to provide time-shifting of PV solar input, and to allow grid-tie and four quadrant operation and grid support. Battery installations can be configured to accept input from both PV solar and from the grid, allowing an energy arbitrage facility.
Systems can be sized to suit any application, and can be selected to match any grid voltage and frequency. Installations typically include transformers and ring switches to match the required grid specifications.
Containerised Solutions: Utilising LGChem battery technology.
These containerised solutions are configurable in multiple arrangements, and can be expanded by adding additional cells, and by paralleling extra containerised arrangements. Containerised LGChem installations suit locations where there is ready crane / swing-lifter access, and where a fully pre-configured solution is required.
Modular Solutions: Utilising TESLA technology
These modular solutions are configurable to suit any application, and can be installed using small cranes, onto a preformed concrete pad.
Modules are preconfigured, and readily connect together for rapid commissioning.
BATTERY ENERGY STORAGE FOR OFF-GRID AND MICROGRID SOLUTIONS
ANDERSONS supply and install AlphaESS off-grid/microgrid solutions, to provide 100% energy independence, in regions that lack grid access.
A solar PV installation paired with a battery system can provide all or most of the required electricity consumption, and the addition of a backup generator can guarantee power supply during periods of prolonged bad weather.
ANDERSONS / AlphaESS solutions can also enable communities with multiple distributed energy resources to share energy with a microgrid. This type of interconnected “virtual power plant” is ideal for areas with no grid access or communities that want to disconnect from the network.
