Powerstar, the voltage optimisation brand will be showcasing the recently launched pioneering energy storage system Powerstar Virtue on stand L20 at Sustainability Live at the NEC from 21–23 April 2015.
Powerstar Virtue uses the patented Powerstar voltage optimisation technology and harnesses the induced negative power feedback to the supply, to charge a storage medium. In essence, the savings achieved from the voltage optimisation system are diverted into the energy storage system to be used at a time most beneficial to the electricity user.
The solution can be integrated with on-site renewable energy generation to combine the energy saved from the voltage optimisation system with that generated from the renewable energy source. As a result, users can save energy and switch to the stored supply at any time they wish, to avoid peak tariff times, as well as ensuring a constant and reliable energy supply.
Due to the easy way in which the availability of power can be predicted, Powerstar Virtue, can in effect, act as a virtual power station (VPS). With this capability, users are able to make informed decisions on when to switch to the stored energy and participate in national grid led initiatives like FDR, STOR and EDR.
The Powerstar Virtue solution can act as a full facility UPS system for up to two hours and due to the modular nature of the system, storage modules can be fitted post installation to match any future needs of the site.
Powerstar has been leading the field in voltage optimisation since being established in 2001 and has built an enviable global reputation as an innovator at the forefront of the development of the technology. Now Powerstar Virtue represents a further first and is set to revolutionise the energy storage market.
