Powerstar were engaged to replace a large hospital’s existing Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system with a more efficient, intelligent Battery Energy Storage (BESS) alternative.
The healthcare sector has by far the most critical requirement for a consistent, reliable electricity source.
Critical care facilities literally have a life and death need for an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS). Furthermore, providers are faced with some of the strictest carbon reduction requirements of any sector, while stretched budgets mean that securing energy cost savings is also a priority. For these reasons, energy management for the healthcare sector can be extremely challenging.

Why Power resilience is critical for healthcare and Hospitals
The need to protect critical care from any risk of power disruption makes power resilience fundamental to healthcare organisations. While improving sustainability and reducing costs are both pressing issues, every part of a healthcare provider’s energy strategy must fully support the requirement for reliable power.
In addition, any technology implemented in support of power resilience must be proven to be reliable and adhere to strict compliance measures. In the case of the UK’s National Health Service (NHS), this would mean complying fully to the Health Technical Memoranda (HTM).
The risk of disruption from grid supplied power is steadily increasingly for many UK healthcare providers, requiring more attention than ever to be placed on long-term power resilience and sustainability. Proper planning and implementation of a power resilience strategy offers not only security of supply for critical applications but offers further cost and environmental benefits.
Fully supporting healthcare with Resilience+
The healthcare sector’s recognised need for reliable backup power, alongside a growing number of further energy priorities, makes it extremely well suited to the added functionality and flexibility of Resilience+. Our leading technology allows your backup power system to help you achieve a wide range of additional energy strategy objectives. Whether your priority is maximising returns from on-site generation, bolstering energy efficiency, or integrating new technologies such as EV charging, Resilience+ means you get more from your Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) than just power resilience.
Our technologies have previously been awarded full HTM compliance for deployment within the NHS. So, you can rest assured that your energy strategy is in the hands of someone you can trust.
