Power storage unit

Quality Essential Distribution (QED) are launching their new energy system at Energy 2017. The Energy Vault unit can charge, store and distribute continuous electricity for businesses, for powering security, retail, industrial and office spaces with applications.

QED, the Preston based security distributor has sparked the interest of Ribble Valley MP, Nigel Evans. As a resident of the district for 26 years, Mr Evans commits to supporting local businesses. He hosted his 26th Annual Summer Surgery from Monday to Saturday, September 25 30, which QED attended. They discussed with him their new power storage device which can reduce electricity consumption by 100pc the firm says when combined with solar or renewables. Not only did the product itself spark interest with the Ribble Valley MP, but he also demonstrated enthusiasm towards its potential. Among recent news, he was delighted by the Government’s decision to invest £246m to develop battery technology; evidently in support of renewable energy solutions and a greener country.

Whilst outlining the importance of making the UK a world leader in battery technology, Evans stated that “the role of batteries in a low-carbon economy is absolutely imperative, whether it be in the use of automobiles, household electronics or on an industrial scale.”

QED describes its EV is an energy-efficient battery storage system that allows you to charge, store and distribute electricity over PoE. The system reduces electricity consumption up to 100pc it’s claimed when used with solar or renewables; and up to 66pc against other storage systems. This product enables the flexibility of PoE Distribution for both PoE devices and everyday electronic devices such as tills, credit card machines, lighting, PCs and CCTV equipment; any items powered by a DC supply.
