Our free to attend breakfast seminar in Scotland on Tuesday, 1 May will explore the importance of a decentralised energy network in the future energy landscape to deliver a more reliable and efficient smart power network.
A decentralised or distributed energy network is the opposite of the UK’s current traditional centralised network and refers to the process of utilising microgrids to generate local energy that maximises on renewables and energy efficiency.
This concept is continuously gaining momentum due to increasing fears over the resilience of the energy supplied from the grid due to the harsh statistics showing that blackouts or brownouts are becoming more frequent, with a staggering 46% increase recorded in 2016 compared to the number of occurrences in 2015.
Investment into smart systems will help decentralisation become a widespread reality as distributed generation will enable energy sources to be more effective, secure and efficient.
In addition to the decentralised concept, this seminar will explore the important role that battery-based energy storage can play in securing the supply and protecting against the aforementioned costly power failures by providing full Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) capabilities which can seamlessly kick in within a three-millisecond timeframe when a supply issue is detected to protect from expensive power failures.
Registration for the seminar opens at 8.30am with refreshments and networking. The seminar begins at 9.00am and after the presentation finishes there will be a Q&A session.
This seminar will give delegates the chance to explore and discuss the current constraints on the electricity network and the supply issues across the UK which are causing a high demand for a complete, connected solution.
Refreshments and breakfast pastries will be provided for all attendees upon arrival.
The speaker will be announced in April 2018.
The seminar will address the following topics:
During the seminar, guests will also be introduced to the innovative energy storage system, VIRTUE, which provides businesses with a completely secure supply through power loss and quality issues. Powerstar’s VIRTUE is delivered as a bespoke solution in an engineering-led approach, and so is tailored to each organisation and its needs.
Powerstar is proud to announce that, in late 2017, it signed a framework agreement with multinational utility company Centrica plc, owner of British Gas. The terms of the agreement outline Powerstar as a preferred supplier, and highlights Powerstar’s commitment to provide Centrica with behind-the-meter (where a client utilises energy storage onsite) energy storage systems during...
