Introduction to the applications of the VIRTUE energy storage solution
Powerstar VIRTUE works by capturing the electricity produced by both renewable and non-renewable sources and storing it for discharge when required, in addition to allowing users to come off-grid and switch to stored electricity at a time most beneficial.
VIRTUE energy storage is playing an integral part in the future development of smart cities, enabling energy generated from sources such as wind and solar to be stored locally and ultimately utilised more efficiently.
Some popular applications include:
- Energy storage for maximizing generation and time-shifting
- Power resilience delivered through full Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) capabilities to avoid power cuts
- Demand Side Response (DSR)
- Maximizing existing on-site generation (such as PV and Cogen)
- Electric Vehicle (EV) charging
The benefits of the Powerstar VIRTUE energy storage solution
- Avoiding high cost electricity periods through time shifting activities
- Avoiding costly downtime caused by power cuts
- Average reduction of 25% off your electricity bill (dependant on application)
- Balancing services: frequency response
- Balancing services: energy arbitrage
- Renewable portfolio balancing
- Power resilience through full Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) capabilities
- Ability to maximise assets such as renewable generation and CHP
- Energy optimization through integrated voltage regulation
