choosing to harness
battery energy storage

Battery storage enables you to capture surplus electricity and store it for later use.

Working hand in hand with solar and wind energy, battery storage solutions are often installed as part of an integrated system. This allows you to capitalise on energy savings and unlock other financial and environmental benefits.

optimise your energy usage

They enable you to use your electricity at times that are most beneficial to you. And they make energy generation via your solar panels or sustainable technology more reliable, increasing your energy security.

complete energy independence

Battery storage gives you even more independence and flexibility over your energy storage and consumption.

easily enable load shifting

Your business can reduce energy costs by charging the solar battery storage when energy is cheap: either at night via the grid when tariffs are low and/or during the day with excess solar or wind generation. The power can then be ‘shifted’ to periods when energy is expensive (during the day and peak periods.)

manage peak shifting

Peak shaving is the process of quickly reducing power consumption for a short period of time by triggering an on-site power generation system, scaling down production temporarily, or utilizing a battery. Peak load monitors that track and regulate peak loads are also a vital part of this process. During peak shaving overall electricity consumption is reduced or “shaved.”

maximise your renewable technology

Battery storage enables you to maximise all the benefits that a solar/wind system brings. Cheaper energy bills and easier budgeting with reliably priced electricity. An unlimited source of energy and a reduced carbon footprint. Independence from utility companies and protection from rising grid prices.

reliable back up power

It’s possible for our systems to restore critical loads, automatically in the event of a power cut, providing there is sufficient back-up energy stored in the system.

renewable energy generation

renewable energy generation

Renewable technologies such as solar and wind harness the environment to generate energy. This captured energy is captured as Direct Current (DC) electricity which is then passed to an inverter.

converting the energy

Once the energy hits the inverter, the energy is converted from DC electricity to Alternating Current (AC) electricity. This AC electricity is a powerful renewably generated alternative to your grid supply.

traditional grid supply

Any power not offset by renewables is traditionally supplied by the grid. This will be consumed in its entirety by your day-to-day operation.

Energy from your inverter is then transferred to a meter where your system production is measured. At this point, excess generation is passed to your battery inverter.

Your energy is then distributed into your organisation to offset or replace your grid supplied electricity.

AC electricity hits the battery inverter, where it is converted back to DC electricity to enable efficient storage of the maximum energy.

battery storage systems, how it works and common questions…

energy generated by renewable technology is stored in batteries for use at a later time

Battery storage enables you to capture surplus electricity and store it for later use. Batteries are connected to a provided on-site energy generation system, such as solar panels or a wind turbine.

For example, if your solar panels produce more electricity than your premise needs, the extra electricity is automatically diverted to your battery.


Battery storage lets you use more of your solar PV system’s output increasing self-consumption. This reduces the amount of grid electricity you need to buy, saving you money on your electricity bill.

Our battery systems are incredibly safe. We use the most progressive lithium battery technology to ensure maximum safety assurance, even during extreme changes in temperate, voltage and current.

All of our services are delivered according to the highest quality and safety standards. All of our installers are accredited by the national regulatory body for low-carbon technology (the Microgeneration Certification Scheme, MCS) and we offer only the highest performing technology (ISO 9001). All battery systems also come with comprehensive performance guarantees and warranties.

It’s possible for our systems to restore critical loads, automatically in the event of a power cut, providing there is sufficient back-up energy stored in the system. However, you will need to specify this requirement as it is not a standard feature of all technologies.
A battery storage system for can typical look like a small fridge or hot water system. However for larger commercial applications, they can be larger ranging in size from a large fridge to a 20-foot shipping container.

With the growing uptake of electric vehicles (EV) increasing demand on the grid, the future of batteries is now. In addition, recent advances in battery manufacturing technology mean prices for large scale storage systems have fallen whilst performance has improved, making them viable for many commercial operations.

To give you peace of mind, we only source tried and tested, ‘tier one’ products from the world’s leading manufacturers and will use the most up to date kit available at the point of installation.

We will always notify you if there are any changes to the products listed in your design specification.

Battery storage enables you maximise all the benefits that a solar/wind system brings.


Cheaper energy bills and easier budgeting with reliably priced electricity. An unlimited source of energy and a reduced carbon footprint. Independence from utility companies and protection from rising grid prices.

On top of that, batteries give you even more independence and flexibility over your energy storage and consumption. They enable you to use your electricity at times that are most beneficial to you. And they make energy generation via your solar panels more reliable, increasing your energy security.

We always conduct a detailed analysis of your electricity consumption and will match the system size as closely as possible to your usage profile, to ensure you get the maximum benefit.

The size and type of battery required will depend on how much electricity you use and how much electricity your renewable supply generates.

This is dependent upon the type of technology installed (whether lithium or flow), and the load profile of the site in question. Typically, lithium
batteries have a 10-15-year warrantied life-cycle. With regular maintenance, flow machines have a 25-year guarantee.

Your business can reduce energy costs by charging the solar battery storage when energy is cheap:

either at night via the grid when tariffs are low and/or during the day with excess solar or wind generation. The power can then be ‘shifted’ to periods when energy is expensive (during the day and peak periods.)

Operating your solar PV and battery storage in this way will typically flatten out your company’s demand for energy from the grid, giving you savings and helping to offset more of your carbon emissions.

Yes, of course, our team of experts can analysis your requirement, plan a suitable solution and propose a fully funded system installation based on a Power Purchase Agreement.

Installations via our PPA’s usually save businesses around 30% on their current energy costs.
