Intergrate battery storage, solar panels, and electric charging in one system.
Powerstar is a market-leading smart energy solution manufacturer founded in 2001.
Through extensive investment into research and development, Powerstar have developed an impressive range of advanced hardware and software from super low-loss transformers, to patented voltage optimisation, and battery energy storage with site-wide Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) capabilities. All manufactured at our facilities in the UK.
More of everything we do is becoming automated and electrified, and at the same time we shift to greener, sometimes less reliable forms of power generation. This has led to real concerns about power supply and quality.
Businesses generally have 2 choices. Hope that governments solve these issues quickly or ensure their own energy resilience. Powerstar are committed to helping businesses achieve the latter.
Solving the Energy Trilemma
Using innovative technologies is key to solving the energy trilemma and vital to ensuring business energy usage is affordable, sustainable, and reliable.
Reliable Energy – Bolstering the energy resilience of your business sites can be one of the more challenging aspects of the trilemma to address without compromising the other two.
Affordable Energy – Historically better procurement was seen as the primary way for businesses to reduce energy costs, however the margin for significant savings simply by changing tariff or supplier is vanishing. Instead, it falls to businesses to make changes in how they operate and use energy, cutting costs by either simply using less or by using the energy they do pay for more intelligently.
Sustainable Energy The UK’s ambitious net zero targets aren’t going anywhere, and progressing towards them is an increasingly vital part of maintaining good relations with consumers, partners and investors. Fortunately, many of the options available to businesses can also help to reduce energy costs and co2 Emissions.

AESSEAL CASE STUDY
AESSEAL®, one of the world’s leading specialists in the design and manufacture of mechanical seals and support systems, was suffering from power disruptions, interrupting their manufacturing processes.
After a thorough site survey and analysis of the site requirements, Powerstar recommended the installation of a 500kW/500kWh Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) with seamless Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) capabilities.
The battery energy storage system is providing full UPS capabilities to the AESSEAL® site, increasing power resilience of the site and negating costly interruptions. Additionally, the system is being optimised to produce cost savings during peak tariff periods as well as generating revenue through grid contracts. Additionally, the solution is able to simultaneously support the ambitious net zero objectives of AESSEAL®
Powerstar’s 1MW Virtue Battery Storage System
The 1MW VIRTUE was installed with full UPS capabilities with a less than 20ms engage time should the company need to rely on stored energy when a power outage occurred.This particular client was suffering from interruptions to their manufacturing process caused by site-wide blackouts, which had significant financial consequences with regard to spoiled materials.
