Powerstar VIRTUE is an on-site energy storage system that integrates energy management, storage and microgrid capabilities with smart grid control. It provides complete power resilience as well as greater control and flexibility of your electricity usage. Learn more by navigating through the product pages below.
Minimise impact of power outages with flexible energy storage
With increasing amounts of inflexible generation such as wind and solar, being added to the UK’s energy mis, the risk of power disruption is becoming more likely. As a business, if you place too much strain on your power infrastructure or if there is an error that causes a power outage, every minute of disruption could mean thousands of pounds of lost revenue. Many organisations throughout the UK rely solely on electricity from the National Grid, which means that they have little flexibility in their own power infrastructure to limit the damages of power interruptions.
We can work with you to develop a bespoke, future-proof energy storage system that fits seamlessly into your existing power infrastructure.
Maximising renewable energy sources and time-shifting
Energy storage technology allows you to maximising on-site generation, such as renewable energy sources. Renewable generation, in particular, can be transient and unreliable, being heavily dependent on the weather. By storing renewable energy during periods of peak or over-generation for use when renewable generation is low, users can maximise the effectiveness of their renewable generation to provide the best ROI for that generation asset.
Also, by utilising the electricity storage capabilities of our battery energy storage technology to time-shift during periods of peak demand, users can store energy provided by the National Grid during off-peak periods, where there is usually excessive electricity generation (low cost), and use it during peak hours (high cost) to provide cost savings.
Why you should invest in on-site storage solutions
Whether you’re in manufacturing or hospitality in order to maintain maximum operational efficiency, you need to be able to safeguard against outages and latency in your power infrastructure. Being able to rely on a behind-the-meter storage system unit will protect your operations from unpredictable events like outages and power surges, and lessen your site’s reliance on the power grid.
Off-grid energy storage
Having an off-grid energy infrastructure allows you to save excess electricity generated for later. This is extremely beneficial to the power resilience of your site as it protects against operational latency by providing unlimited power supply.
How do our energy storage systems work?
Our robust industrial power storage systems work by providing you with your own on-site battery storage unit capable of storing the excess power generated in times of lower demand in order to provide electricity to your site in a time when you need it most.
