FAQs - Building Systems

Building electrical systems and how to select the right ones to improve energy efficiency.

We provide a comprehensive range of on-site maintenance contracts for the power solutions we supply and third party systems we are asked to take on board and for which we have manufacturer certified engineers. Our maintenance contracts include emergency call out (8 or 12 working hours or 4 clock hours) and 24/7 access to our technical support team.

A Virtual Power Plant (VPP) is an energy storage system that allows a building or part of a building to run off-grid when the mains power supply fails or when it decides to during peak demand on the grid or when electricity charges are highest. An uninterruptible power supply (UPS system) Is a form of Virtual Power Plant where the traditional lead-acid battery set is replaced by a Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery as Li-ion batteries are more suited to the more regular and higher number of charge/discharge cycles required.

A Local Energy Storage System (LES) is a system for storing electrical energy in a battery for use on site when the mains power supply fails or at peak period and/or when electricity charges are highest. A local energy storage system will generally use Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries and be charged from the mains power supply or an alternate renewable power source including solar PV or wind turbine installations.
