Virtue: An internet of energy


the-internet-of-energySponsored post: Virtue is an integrated energy management and micro-grid solution with smart grid control. It is forming an integral part in the future development of smart cities, enabling energy generated from sources such as wind and solar to be stored locally and ultimately more efficiently.

By allowing ultimate flexibility to business users and electricity grid operators, Virtue enables the evolution from the traditional model of electricity provision to a future smart system of integrated supply and consumption, resulting in lower energy costs, greater security of the supply and transition to a low carbon economy.

Sharing the storage – Virtue EV charging stations

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’s connecting to the National Grid will have a significant impact upon the distribution network, causing major network overloads – unless appropriate management systems and network upgrading occurs.

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

On Tuesday 6th December 2016, a fully operational Virtue EV demonstration system will be unveiled at Powerstar head office in Sheffield, as part of an event which will also see leading professors from the University of Sheffield deliver keynote addresses on power generation, energy storage and the future EV landscape.
