Photo Voltaic (PV) & Batteries
Advancements in solar photovoltaic (PV) power technology has pushed it from alternative to mainstream development, with improvements in mass production, efficiencies, continuity and quality.
Coupled with the availability of affordable chemical energy (batteries), that can shift the energy from point of generation to the point of demand, ensuring higher yield and lower reliance on the national grid.
Whilst there remain concerns relating to the embodied carbon in manufacture, ‘cradle to cradle’ design and use of finite resources such as lithium, this clean and silent electricity in a visually unobtrusive and environmentally friendly, ensuring it remains extremely appealing as we head towards a more green and renewable tomorrow.
- WME understands the market trends and developments in technology, complete with emerging innovation in fabrication and application that provides the best value.
- WME can determine the dynamic energy use that balances solar energy generation, with chemical energy storage, against occupant demands. Setting out profiles to deliver improved efficiencies.
- WME can provide embodied energy calculations that determine the carbon emissions associated with the manufacture, transportation, and construction, as well as energy generated in use.
- WME can develop PV and battery solutions to fit within a project’s overall energy strategy, complementing it, or reducing the reliance on PV solutions by implementing other better value solutions.
