Power resilience for a net zero world

Public Sector

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 improve their energy efficiency and achieve their carbon reduction targets, such as the Public Sector Decarbonisation Fund.

The public sector has the power to drive the net zero transition within the UK. However, in order to do this, it is essential that organisations are moving forward and becoming more power resilient, making sure operations are not interrupted due to a power disruption.

How to achieve power resilience for your public sector site

Ensuring your critical operations aren’t interrupted due to a power disruption or failure can be achieved through installation of Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) with an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS). Many hospitals already have a traditional UPS system, which does work effectively if maintained. However, they are inefficient, costing around £200,000 a year and often generating additional carbon emissions. In comparison, the innovative Powerstar UPS solution consumes about 95% less electricity, saving carbon emissions and cost. This will improve the energy efficiency or the public sector site.

Utilising a battery energy storage solution with fast-switching UPS capabilities will give your organisation electricity to downstream demand if your grid supply is disrupted. Battery energy storage also enables public sector organisations to simultaneously enhance their energy efficiency, generate additional revenue, and maximise the impact of on-site generation.

Achieving Net Zero carbon emissions at a public sector site

Achieving net zero carbon is a priority at any public sector organisation. A battery energy storage solution is an important piece of the complex energy efficiency strategy jigsaw required to achieve this target.

As well as giving sites full power resilience, this technology also offers a wide range of additional applications as well, including, but not limited to, EV charging, generating additional income and resolving any issues due to grid constraints.

Procurement Frameworks

Being able to effectively contrast and compare responses to your tenders is important to ensure your process is as efficient as possible.  We work across a range of public sector frameworks that can provide you with a more effective way of bringing a tender to market.

The NHS and healthcare sector is a major contributor to the UK’s total emissions. Coupling this with ambitious Net-zero targets means there is huge scope for reducing the United Kingdom’s total emissions but must also be balanced with reducing costs and still providing vital lifesaving care. Find out how we are helping the NHS and the healthcare sector achieve their Net-Zero targets.


We work with several education providers to help them lower their energy costs and CO2 emissions. At the same time Powerstar Battery Energy Storage systems help provide energy security in the form of UPS functionality to enable undisrupted education and provide the opportunity for generating extra revenue from national grid service contracts, helping to bolster their stretched budgets. Find out how we’re helping the Education Sector

Local Government

Local authorities and local government institutions have a key part to play in the Energy Transition. By investing in smart energy technologies now local governments can be well-positioned to lead the charge towards net zero and in turn, save a considerable amount on their energy bills and offer even better value for their constituents.
