Welcome to the December roundup of news from Powerstar, keeping you up to date with the latest company and industry news.
1) A LITE, leisurely video
In October 2017, we published a case study covering a project for Tees Active Ltd’s site, Billingham Forum, a diverse leisure complex located in Teesside. The facility utilises a wide variety of electrical equipment 7 days a week. You can read the full published case study by clicking here.
Following the successful installation of a Powerstar LITE solution at the facility, we have produced a short case study video showcasing the results of the project. The video summarises the key facts and figures from the installation in under 2 minutes, including the significant savings the bespoke solution produced for the site’s energy consumption and electricity costs.
2) Industry Insights: the Autumn Budget
Following the Clean Growth Strategy, the Industrial Strategy and amid Brexit negotiations, 2017’s Autumn Budget was a highly anticipated event.
After reviewing the investment commitments and proposals presented during the Autumn Budget, we created a short blog to summarise the elements of the budget that may affect the energy industry and provide discussion on what it could mean for the future of the energy industry. This was particularly interesting when considering the adoption of electric vehicles (EV) in the UK.
3) VIRTUE EV celebrates its 1st birthday
December 2017 marked a momentous occasion for our latest innovation, VIRTUE EV; one year since its launch to the market.
VIRTUE EV is a rapid/fast EV charging solution with energy storage and integrated renewable generation. The solution received a lot of interest throughout 2017 and will continue to be a popular discussion point following the Government’s 2040 EV plans, the Clean Growth Strategy, and the Autumn Budget.
We look forward to continuing to deliver VIRTUE EV to the market in 2018 and continue to drive innovation within the energy and EV industries.
