Good Energy partners with BELECTRIC and Powerstar for business battery storage

13.02.2019

Partners chosen to provide design, installation, operation and maintenance of Good Energy’s commercial battery storage projects

Good Energy, the clean power sharing company, has selected two partners to work with on the design, installation, operation and maintenance of commercial battery storage projects. The partners, BELECTRIC and Powerstar, both specialists in renewable energy engineering, have been appointed following a tender and procurement process.

Dr. Randall Bowen, Sales and Commercial Director of Good Energy, said: “Storage is one of the key enablers in the move from supplying to sharing energy. Not only does it help resolve the issue of variability in renewable power — a benefit to the grid — it benefits customers practically too.

“Its attraction to businesses is in the control and independence batteries can offer, allowing them to store, share and use clean power at times when it is not only cleaner, but more cost effective. Having the right partners in place to deliver this for our customers is a really important step in realizing Good Energy’s strategic vision.”

The new partnerships ready Good Energy for future battery storage projects, putting in place a key part of the framework for delivery. It follows a number of key appointments involved in the development of battery storage proposition, across the company’s product, strategy, partnerships and business services teams. A number of these hires have come from Big Six suppliers, including Tim Wynn-Jones into the newly created Head of Energy Solutions Sales role in October.

Good Energy is in discussions with a number of its existing and prospective business customers with regards to how battery storage can help them take ownership of their power, enabling energy security, carbon savings and cost efficiencies. Having BELECTRIC and Powerstar on board allows for the progression of these, and alongside Good Energy’s developing self-generation, electric vehicle and smart propositions, it marks a significant step towards solutions for domestic customers, too.

Amit Oza, Managing Director of BELECTRIC UK, said: “Battery storage technologies are the link between modern grids and intermittent power generation from renewables. We expect that these systems will deliver significant value to corporate customers, especially in conjunction with Good Energy’s electricity supply contracts

“We are quite proud of the flexibility in terms of technology and software solutions we can offer to this partnership. We always design our battery storage systems to the respective applications and usage requirements of the project and we are looking forward to delivering this expertise to Good Energy’s project portfolio.”

Dr. Alex Mardapittas, CEO and founder of Powerstar, said: “We are incredibly proud to be one of the first few chosen suppliers selected to be a part of Good Energy’s business battery storage framework. Securing a place on this framework displays the level of quality we uphold for our solutions and highlights our focus of sustainability as a business.

“It is a positive step towards the wider adoption of energy storage technologies to maximise renewable energy in the UK as renewable generation continues to become a larger part of the energy mix. We look forward to working with Good Energy to provide a sustainable, and more resilient, future for the UK’s commercial sector.”
