What We Do
With huge advances in technology and scale making it one of the cheapest options for generating electricity, solar is now a real option all over the world.
At a domestic home level, demand is growing for better looking, integrated solar panels whilst industrially, the lower harmful emissions and lower costs to generate electricity, compared with coal, gas and nuclear power, make for a more attractive energy solution. Paired with energy storage solutions, solar power systems give homeowners and companies an accessible level of control over rising energy costs and grid reliability
Energy storage technology is advancing and cost are coming down significantly. There are many ways to store energy, but Lithium Ion batteries are one of the most common, flexible and cost effective today, in part because of the boom in mobile devices and electric vehicles.
Whether stabilizing the electricity grid, helping customers avoid Peak hour charges or simply acting as a backup to homes and businesses, some analysts describe the potential of energy storage to make our grid significantly more efficient and cost effective as, “revolutionary".
In the UK, two thirds of the electricity generated is lost in transmission to our homes and businesses. As we increase demand for electricity, it’s clear the current system is simply not sustainable
Across the world, the way electricity is generated, managed and used is changing rapidly, with the move from centralised power generation and high voltage distribution networks towards de-centralised power plants, often from renewable sources. Smarter use of energy, more efficient appliances and lighting, plus more localised electricity generation creating virtual power plants will make our grid more reliable, more efficient and a lot more cost effective.
