Battery storage for local councils

Supporting local councils and the public sector towards their decarbonisation and net zero goals.

Powering the future

We’re all under increased pressure to take positive steps to support our planet. If you want to do things differently, battery energy storage can support local councils and public sector energy management goals. By linking with renewable generation or providing additional power for energy intensive equipment such as heat pumps, a BESS could help you take more control of your energy.

Support decarbonisation goals

A battery storage system from Connected Energy will help you achieve your net zero goals because it works together with renewable sources such as PV and wind. It allows you to make greater use of your renewable energy and helps your site to run on cleaner, greener energy for longer.

Overcome energy constraints

If a site is facing energy constraints, a battery energy storage system can be much cheaper to install than increasing your grid connection. Our system allows you to store energy when demand is low and then use it when demand is high – so you create some leeway and ensure your current grid connection is sufficient.

Integrate with energy intensive equipment

Our systems are being used across Europe to decarbonise infrastructure.  When working together with specific assets, a battery energy storage system can offset a metered load using renewable energy. Linked to EV chargers this can be used to decarbonise a fleet or linked to ground source heat, to further decarbonise heating systems.

Contribute to the circular economy

Made from second life electric vehicle batteries, our systems are further supporting decarbonisation goals by re-using valuable resources. So not only do they provide huge carbon reduction benefits on site, but they also support the circular economy model.

Case study

Battery storage to reduce solar energy waste and promote the decarbonisation at the North Tyneside site.

Connected Energy worked with the North Tyneside Council to maximise the value of their PV array and work towards the decarbonisation of the Killingworth site. One battery energy storage systems is being used to store excess solar energy, power the building during the night, and provide a reliable source of energy for their EV charging ports.

Case study

Creating an energy management system for Cranfield University

Connected Energy worked with the energy team at Cranfield University to help them reimagine how they balance their energy onsite. Three battery energy storage systems are being used to help smooth out interactions between the site’s solar farm, air source heat pump, gas CHP and the import of energy.

Case study

Keeping the University of Sheffield's AMRC on their green tariff

With an ambition to develop one of the UK’s most advanced building management systems, the University of Sheffield’s AMRC has installed two Connected Energy battery energy storage systems. The systems support their solar PV to provide clean energy to their manufacturing centre.
