Power resilience for a net zero world
Your power supply from the national grid is not as reliable or constant as it once was. Your risk of blackout, brownout, voltage drops, voltage spikes, and frequency variations is increasing. We can help in a number of ways.

Grid constraints can come in several formats. These key types of constraints can prevent you from connecting electrical equipment on your site to the national grid. The most common are insufficient demand, authorised capacity, insufficient resilience, or incorrect permissions

A microgrid is a localised energy system with the capacity to disconnect from the grid and operate as a standalone system. While the majority of the time a microgrid operates while connected to the grid, it is able to switch to its own, on-site generation indefinitely to prevent power outages on the grid from disrupting the site.

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.

The public sector consumes £3.4 billion of energy every year, with £1.1 billion attributed to the NHS. The impact of the UK Government’s 2050 net zero target is a key focus for this sector, with a variety of funds in place to help public sector organisations achieve their carbon reduction targets, such as the public sector decarbonisation fund.
