Free Energy Breakfast Seminar in Sheffield: Decentralised Energy Network – a Sustainable Future through Energy Storage

On Tuesday 5 December, Powerstar is hosting a free to attend seminar over breakfast and coffee at its head office in Sheffield. This short and focused seminar will explore the concept of a decentralised energy network, which utilises integrated energy storage technology to form microgrids which can help to relieve demand on the network by providing areas with more reliable, efficient, locally generated energy.

With demand for electricity in the UK growing yearly, the traditional centralised energy network is experiencing more demand and consequently, more supply issues causing a multitude of problems for businesses including reduced security of the supply and power failures. This is evidenced by the increase in blackouts and brownouts from 2015 to 2016, which was recorded at a staggering 46%.

By attending this free seminar, delegates will learn the current restrictions and limitations of the UK electricity supply network and the increasing demand it faces in the wake of announcements such as the government’s 2040 electric vehicle plan, in addition to how a decentralised electricity network can provide a realistic solution to these challenges.

In addition, guests will explore the following topics:

  • What is decentralised energy and how does it work?
  • The limitations of the current electricity network and how a decentralised energy network can help
  • The role of energy storage technology in storing decentralised energy
  • The benefits of decentralised energy, including cost and emissions reductions
  • How decentralised energy could be implemented on both a local and national scale
