Connected Energy showcasing energy storage expertise and products at FoodEx

Newcastle’s Connected Energy is taking its team of experts to the country’s premier trade event FoodEx. 16-18th April at the NEC.

One of the UK’s energy storage leaders - the company will showcase its storage expertise and products, which are already making significant savings for customers including Statkraft and Engie.

Nigel Dent, Connected Energy’s Sales Manager comments, “Our British designed battery storage systems and energy optimisation expertise are rapidly changing the way industrial and commercial energy users can capitalise on load flexibility. Our mission is to catalyse smarter, sustainable approaches to energy use.

“One of the major challenges for the food industry is maintaining the highest quality products while ensuring value for money and cost competitiveness within the marketplace.

“One way that we can help, is by managing the peak electricity loads for a food manufacturing site and thus reducing the customer’s energy bill. Our innovative technology harnesses the energy of ‘second life’ electric vehicle (EV) batteries for site electric usage and grid balancing. In addition, through the grid services market we can provide customers with a revenue stream by helping balance the electricity grid during peak times.”

Mr Dent concludes, “Our experts will be on hand to discuss visitors’ energy saving and storage requirements, and demonstrate how our award-winning British-designed energy storage systems and optimisation expertise, can help customers within the food manufacturing industry can maximise the potential for efficiencies and savings.”
