The University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) has an ambition to create one of the UK’s most advanced building energy management systems. Located at AMRC North West in Samlesbury, Lancashire, the centre is designed as a low carbon building demonstrator site. It will be used to support North West manufacturing businesses to showcase how they can reduce carbon emissions while maintaining productivity and manufacturing output.
AMRC North West wished to install two types of solar on site – a traditional rooftop array and another comprising two solar flowers – and needed battery energy storage to support them. Connected Energy was chosen following a competitive tendering process.
