Power resilience for a net zero world

Automotive Manufacturing

UK automotive manufacturers face significant global competition, and with the impact of the energy crisis more pronounced in the UK than most competitor countries, energy costs are having a huge impact. Consumers and regulatory bodies alike expect improved sustainability from car manufacturers, while power disruption on a site can risk huge disruption to assembly lines, impacting productivity and profitability. 

Powerstar specialises in supporting manufacturers with their energy management priorities, providing market-leading technology and expertise that make our customer’s energy usage more cost-effective, sustainable and reliable. We understand that every customer has different needs and priorities when it comes to using their energy more intelligently, and we deliver bespoke solutions tailored to their individual sites. 

    Reducing Costs

    Powerstar’s voltage optimisation technology offers substantial reductions in energy consumption and subsequent costs, while our battery energy storage and smart microgrid solutions offer a range of ways to use energy more intelligently and cost-effectively 

    Reducing Carbon

    Better energy efficiency is key to improving the sustainability of a business and the products it manufactures, and fundamental to serious net zero ambitions. For sites that are considering investing in further clean technologies, or even those that have already done so, battery energy storage and turning a site into a smart microgrid ensures those technologies perform to their maximum potential 

    Solving Grid Constraints

    With automotive manufacturing already representing very high energy demands, many sites may find that localised grid constraints prevent the installation of new, low-carbon technologies or increased electrification of processes. Powerstar’s smart microgrid solutions are an alternative to costly connection works, or projects being refused outright 

    Protecting Productivity

    Power disruption can be disastrous for vehicle manufacturers, resulting in additional costs, lower productivity and impacting negatively on supply chain partners. Powerstar’s integrated UPS functionality for our battery energy systems provides site-wide power resilience, while also having the potential to contribute across a range of other energy management priorities
