With zero emissions and no harmful gases, lithium-ion batteries are an ideal power alternative. Without the need for fuel storage, battery powered emergency response units can be deployed indoors and underground with minimal risk. Delivering significant cost savings, lower maintenance and reduced noise pollution than their diesel counterparts, they provide less disruption to residents, businesses and the general public.

Northern Powergrid’s Silent Power project - Case Study

The Problem

Northern Powergrid is an electrical distribution company serving 8 million customers across the North East and Yorkshire. In response to customer demand for quiet emergency response throughout the night, the Silent Power project aims to deliver emergency response with minimal disruption.

The Challenge

We were tasked with developing an on-board energy storage system within their new electric response vehicle. A rackable system, the project included full systems integration and support.

The Solution

Fitted with five lithium-ion battery packs, the electric response vehicle is a quieter, cleaner alternative to the traditional diesel-powered generators currently used and provides better air quality and less noise pollution for customers.
