Energy storage information including lithium battery solutions.

Off-The-Grid (OTG) or Off-Grid refers to being without a connection to a grid electrical supply such as that from the National Grid.

Flywheels are a device used to convert Kinetic energy into a standby supply of direct current (dc) power for a UPS either in place of a battery set or to reduce the initial discharge during momentary interruptions.

A Fuel Cell is a device that uses hydrogen as a fuel to generate an AC (alternating current) or DC (direct current) supply in addition to heat and water.

Behind The Meter (BTM) energy storage is the use of energy storage systems on a domestic, business or industrial site and installed behind the metered and not after. BTM installations are designed for local energy usage rather than export to the grid. In the case of a renewable solar PV installation, the energy generated is stored in a local energy storage system rather than exported.
