In the past few years, battery energy storage systems (BESS) have made the headlines for being able to support the electricity grid through a number of often competing services - demand side management, frequency regulation, embedded renewable energy whilst also providing site resilience services. However often the business decision for investing in a BESS is based purely on expected revenues that can be achieved.
Dr Alex Mardapittas, MD, Powerstar will consider this revenue-driven approach but also present the wider business case that is available from investing in a BESS system and why they are so critical for the future of the decentralised energy sector.
Dr. Alex Mardapittas is as an experienced Chartered Engineer with a research doctorate. He possesses extensive knowledge of software programming and innovative engineering design, which has enabled him to create and deliver award-winning smart energy solutions to the market. Alex established Powerstar in 2001 and has spearheaded the company since its inception. During this time, Powerstar has built a reputation as an industry market leader renowned for engineering excellence, innovation and high-quality UK manufactured solutions. Alex believes that constant innovation and investment into research and development should be considered fundamental aspects for a business, which is why he contributes substantial funding, time and effort into R&D activities to allow Powerstar to evolve with the rapidly advancing energy sector.
