Electric vehicle energy storage range ‘cuts costs, emissions and grid congestion’


batterySponsored post: Powerstar is officially launching its Virtue energy storage range for electric vehicles. The firm says the system cuts costs, network congestion and CO2.

As more companies are looking to invest in electric vehicles (EV), the need for convenient and rapid charging is becoming apparent. However, large numbers of EV connecting to the National Grid will have a significant impact upon the distribution network, causing major network overloads – unless appropriate management systems and network upgrades occur.

Not only is this issue applicable to the grid operators, but also business owners who have the issue of a limited supply, and face potential costly supply upgrades.

Virtue EV is a rapid/fast charging system which utilises battery storage to limit the amount of energy required from the network at any given time. The system doesn’t just provide feasible rapid charging services; it also offers:

  • Cost reduction
  • Smart grid integration
  • UPS functionality
  • CO2 reduction
  • Renewable connectivity

The market launch of Virtue EV will be held at Powerstar head offices and will be underpinned by keynote presentations from esteemed energy efficiency professors at Sheffield University, along with a visit from the Lord Mayor of Sheffield.
