What is E-STOR?

E-STOR is no ordinary battery storage technology. British designed and developed, E-STOR uses second life Renault electric vehicle (EV) batteries to deliver a smarter, affordable and more flexible approach to grid load management. We optimise E-STOR using our sophisticated operating software and load management services to maximise the potential for efficiencies and savings.

Why use 2nd life EV Batteries?

The concept of reusing electric vehicle batteries - giving them a second life is highly compelling. This new value chain adds to the sustainability credentials of the vehicles as well as the electricity system. Using 2nd life batteries also reduces system costs - making our storage system financially viable for a wider range of end users.


Who is Connected Energy?

Connected Energy was established to commercialise the research and development work undertaken by our awardwinning parent company Future Transport Systems (FTS). Our team is on a mission to catalyse new approaches to grid decarbonisation, whether that be stationary or mobile (such as electrical vehicles).

What does the UK Government think about battery storage?

According to a House of Commons Briefing Paper entitled 'Energy Storage in the UK' (published July 2016), energy storage could result in savings of around £2.4 billion per year in 2030 for the UK electricity system.

We're catalysing smarter, more sustainable approaches to energy use.
