UK science park opts for Tesla battery

April 27, 2018


A Tesla Powerpack battery has been installed as a backup power option for a science and technology park in the UK.


Four Powerpack lithium-ion batteries and one inverter have been installed in the Bright Building at the Manchester Science Park. However, if the energy demand for the building increases, the system can be added up to 16 additional Powerpacks, MSP said.


According to the park’s operator, Manchester Science Partnerships (MSP), the move will help reduce reliance on the National Grid and allow it to “offer customers operating in R&D-heavy sectors unrivalled assurances in resilience and business continuity”.


More than GBP400,000 ($546,000) has been invested in the project, including funding from the government-backed agency Innovate UK.
