Winter Peaking

Winter Peaking

When winter approaches, the demand for natural gas rises. This time of year usually includes preparing for heightened fuel consumption and costs for facilities or manufacturing processes that use natural gas regularly. With peak shaving, however, you can maximize your resources and keep your operations running unimpeded. Discover how our peak shaving natural gas services can help your business prepare for winter.

Supply and demand volatility significantly impact the cost of energy. Like anything else, natural gas for power generation can rise in price when the demand is high, and the supply is low. In the same way, having a low energy supply can cause blackouts or service interruptions that could impact the overall performance of your operation. LNG systems use peak shaving or load shedding to guarantee consistent power over time. With a solution to guard against those peak energy usage times, your business can reduce utility costs and ensure long-term reliability.

DefiningPeak Shaving

In the energy industry, peak shaving refers to leveling out peaks in electricity use for all consumers. During high demand, natural gas companies will essentially reduce the amount of power consumption at small increments to avoid peak loads. Also known as load shedding, companies will either scale down production or rely on a source of backup power until power is restored.

Peak shaving is one of the most common uses of liquidated natural gas or LNG. By storing LNG at a power plant during months of low usage, customers can tap into that source of energy during peak demand to maximize the performance of their power grids.

There are two different types of peak shaving systems that customers can use, onsite liquefaction or LNG transportation. While companies solely rely on LNG storage tanks to hold their fuel, having the onsite capabilities of a liquefaction facility ensures that your business will retain power at all times. For those who don’t have a liquefaction facility, the LNG storage tanks can be filled by having tanker trucks provide delivery.
