What is peak shaving gas?by Smith Warner Blogger
Peak shaving is a concept used in the energy industry to describe the method of levelling out peaks in electricity consumption for all customers. To avoid peak loads, natural gas companies can minimise power usage in small increments during times of high demand. Companies can either minimise output or rely on a backup power source before power is restored, which is also known as load shedding.
One of the most common applications of liquidated natural gas, or LNG, is peak shaving gas. Customers can tap into LNG stored at a power plant during months of low demand to optimise the output of their power grids by tapping into that source of energy during high demand.
Customers may select from two forms of peak shaving systems: onsite liquefaction or LNG transportation. Although some firms rely entirely on LNG storage tanks to store their gasoline, having a liquefaction plant on site means that the organisation is still powered up. LNG holding tanks can be loaded by tanker trucks for those that do not have access to a liquefaction plant.
