Our teams of technical experts cover many disciplines, giving us the ability to combine skills in areas such as renewables and storage to ensure all aspects of design are optimized in unison. 

Our experts can work with you to understand your energy storage requirements and assist you in developing a storage system that is designed efficiently based on aspects such as its application, grid connection and location. We can consider the whole lifetime cost of the asset and can carry out modelling to ensure both technical and financial elements are optimized. In addition, we can carry out analysis to ensure both energy storage and renewable systems are correctly sized in accordance to each other.
