UK battery storage manufacturer Powervault has launched P4, its fourth-generation energy storage system. It is designed for larger homes and commercial properties and features a larger battery and inverter than the sister PVCompact.
Artificial intelligence SmartSTOR software drives Powervault. It optimises the device on a daily basis, depending on the customer’s tariff, power use and weather forecast.
The system runs on Lithium-ion LFP cells with AC capacities of 8kWh, 12kWh, 16kWh, 20kWh and 24kWh. They are all compatible with solar PV and wind turbine systems and enclosed in a slim, wall-mounted design.
In February, Powervault raised £3.8 million ($4.75 million) in an investment round from existing and new investors, including Green Angel Syndicate and its Climate Change Fund.
