Below is an overview of the key technologies that we specialise in. Click a technology for further details.
Roof-mounted solar PV panels allow you to generate green electricity for consumption onsite. Converting the suns rays in to AC electricity during daylight hours, a good solar PV installation can generate electricity for over 25 years, particularly when supported by a proactive operation and maintenance service. Solar panels can be installed on south, east and west facing roofs that are unaffected by shading.
Commercial battery storage can be installed in conjunction with solar PV, in part charging the battery with excess generation, or used purely as an income generator to provide grid services (frequency response) to the National grid. Batteries can also be charged from the grid when energy is cheap and released back in to the business during more expensive periods. Operating the battery this way will reduce DuOS and triad charges.
In addition to the benefits of solar PV, solar carports create an enhanced parking experience for your staff, visitors and customers. The canopies – used to install solar panels – protect vehicles from the elements and also create opportunity to install Electric Vehicle charging points; green energy charging green vehicles. All solar carports are engineered bespoke to the layout and generation potential of your car park.
EV Charging Stations
Installing EV charging stations onsite gives you the facility to charge electric vehicles, whether this is your own commercial fleet or those of your staff/visitors; or both. Various charging speeds are available to accommodate different levels of demand. Incentivised by the Government, Electric vehicle ownership is increasing rapidly and EV charging facilities will be expected at all commercial locations for personal and commercial use.
HV & LV Infrastructure
HV and LV (high voltage and low voltage) infrastructure has a key role to play in maximising the efficiency of an industrial facility. If your business lacks the proper infrastructure or if your current infrastructure is in need of an update, you could be spending more money than necessary to power your machinery and technology. Greensphere’s team can manage the entire planning, installation and upkeep process for HV and LV infrastructure.
Deployment of solar PV has soared since the 1990’s when the first grid connected arrays were installed. With huge advancements in the market, today, solar technology is more sophisticated and reliable than ever; falling prices have also made it the cheapest way for a business to consume energy compared to importing ‘brown energy’ from the grid.
The recent viability of battery storage in a commercial environment is also a game-changer. The eagerly awaited technology now gives businesses another option for better managing their energy onsite, whilst also providing an option to provide valued services to the National Grid.
