Powerstar, the market-leading energy storage and voltage optimisation brand, has announced confirmation that its most recent application to both the European and USA patent offices has been successful, further demonstrating the company’s innovative approach and engineering validity on an international scale.
The Sheffield based company is known for its innovative ethos and the latest European and USA patents ensure that the company’s intellectual properties are significantly enhanced.
The company’s range of voltage optimisation solutions has held a global patent on its design and specification, which ensures that no other voltage optimisation solution - although similar in principle and application - is able to replicate the exact design specification of a Powerstar system.
It is through this patented design that Powerstar is able to generate what it calls ‘negative power feedback’, or ‘back EMF’, to provide additional energy consumption savings to its customers, the effect of which has been confirmed through several independent reports which can be found on its website.
Powerstar’s newly accepted intellectual property with the European and USA patent offices, under patent numbers EP15002651.6 and 14/850996 respectively, takes this one step further and demonstrates how the company can integrate the patented Powerstar design as part of an integrated energy storage solution to deliver a unique and complete, behind the meter energy storage solution. This solution, named Powerstar VIRTUE, can provide customers with process optimisation, voltage regulation, seamless stand-by Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) and Demand Side Response (DSR) services.
Furthermore, the company is currently pursuing further patents within the UK for a variety of other services and products developed as a part of its continued commitment to R&D.
Powerstar’s CEO, Dr. Alex Mardapittas, said: “This is an exciting development for Powerstar, especially on top of recent company growth, that really underlines our commitment to an engineering-led approach and our desire to continue to innovate and develop industry-leading solutions that produce tangible results for our clients.
“We constantly strive to develop our service and product offering to meet the changing needs of our customers through continual investment into our R&D team. Our appetite to deliver a differentiated product that is fit for purpose will keep innovation at the heart of our business. Our newly granted patent provides a unique behind the meter storage solution to our clients and differentiates us significantly from all other storage systems in the market.”
