Please note, this energy webinar is specific to the UK audience.


Following recent high profile incidents of energy-related failures, such as issues at two popular UK theme parks in the summer as discussed in our August Industry Insight, energy resilience is a topic that continues to hold attention within the energy industry as we transition from a centralised energy grid to a decentralised and decarbonised network.

This free online webinar will discuss the advantages of implementing a steadfast energy resilience strategy to protect businesses from energy-related failures, which often have significant financial, operational, and even reputation consequences.


As the aforementioned energy transition progresses more renewable energy sources are being introduced to the network as we work towards a more sustainable future. However, the intermittent nature of renewable energy leads to further challenges for the network to balance supply and demand, contributing to a less reliable energy network. It is here where energy storage technology provides unparalleled benefits, as the seamless uninterruptible power supply (UPS) capabilities that leading-edge solutions can provide create a compelling business case for the technology.

Join Powerstar on 4th December for a free online session to explore the importance of energy resilience at the current juncture in the energy transition, especially for businesses that rely upon critical or continuous operations, and the impact energy-related failures can have when steps are not taken to protect against them.

Through the implementation of an energy resilience strategy, the operations of the company are protected and the cost implications associated with energy-related failures, such as resetting production and running back-up generation, are negated. It is because of this that, for many companies, energy storage is not purely viewed as a device for revenues, but as a way to protect the operations and needs of the business.

This is exemplified within Centrica’s Resilience Report, which found that UK businesses without an energy resilience strategy are risking as much as 17% of their revenue; this equates to potentially £2.8m each year in damages and lost opportunities for a typical medium-sized UK business.[1]

Leading-edge energy storage technology, such as Powerstar’s VIRTUE, can provide instantaneous, responsive and seamless support to a site’s load, minimising the number of energy-related failures experienced and protecting against loss of power.
