Powerstar’s energy storage solution,VIRTUE allows for greater control and flexibility of electricity usage, providing an integrated energy management and microgrid solution with smart grid control.

Energy storage enable business users and electricity grid operators to benefit from flexibility, lower energy costs and greater security of supply.

By using the energy storage capabilities of the VIRTUE system during peak periods, users can switch to stored electricity generated during the cheaper periods, therefore enabling the customer to make savings on electricity costs.

Powerstar’s VIRTUE works by capturing electricity produced by both renewable and non-renewable sources and storing it for discharge when required.

Applications of Energy Storage

Powerstar’s VIRTUE is an innovative solution which allows it to deliver benefits above and beyond that of a typical energy storage system. The general benefits provided by VIRTUE energy storage solution can be broken down into four areas This includes:

  • Reduce your sites electricity consumption from the grid by using the scalable energy storage system capabilities of Powerstar VIRTUE to take your site off grid during peak times.
  • Store onsite renewable generation and energy at off-peak times when electricity is cheaper and it would normally be wasted, therefore allowing for the maximising of renewable sources and contributing to the decarbonisation of the local area.
  • Save: Switch to stored power at any time to save on average 24% off your electricity bill by minimising network charges.
  • Eliminate operational risks through the full Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) capabilities of the VIRTUE energy storage solution, boosting the energy resilience of your organisation and eliminating costly shutdowns.

Applications of the VIRTUE energy storage solution include:

  • Energy Storage: Utilising the most appropriate technology, Powerstar VIRTUE will store energy provided by the electricity grid throughout night hours where there is usually excessive electricity generation (low cost) and use it during peak hours (high cost). This allows it to deliver substantial electricity cost savings to the customer.
  • Full Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) capabilities: The VIRTUE energy storage solution has the ability to provide sites with full UPS capabilities to the load at all times, eliminating the need for additional back-up generation. This is particularly important for sites that require a constant energy supply to critical equipment, and can protect in the case of blackouts and brownouts, offering energy resilience.
  • Save: Switch to stored power at any time to save on average 24% off your electricity bill by minimising network charges.
  • Maximising Renewable Energy Generation: Allied with an effective storage medium, energy generated by renewable sources can be stored within the VIRTUE energy storage solution for discharge during periods of peak demand. This is known as renewable firming and allows businesses to maximise renewable generation and revenues as well as helping to support the grid.
