About this group
Here’s an exciting project that will help with reducing CO2 emissions and mitigate ever-rising energy prices.
Initially, the pilot project will define the commercial business case and we are looking to connect a local Kingston organisation with a leading-edge energy saving innovation that uses photovoltaic energy to power office equipment.
Photovoltaic cells generate DC electricity, and Ethernet cables in offices can carry this load to power Laptops that also use and store DC electricity. This reduces the need to power these devices directly from the mains supply. .
The project aims to pilot how organisations can take advantage of these facts by proving that the system can run a small office for about a year, based on a photovoltaic power supply.
The parties involved in this exciting project are the Strathclyde University Energy Unit, Building Research Establishment (BRE) and Siemens IT Solutions and Services.
TTKingston is keen for this kind of project to succeed and would be pleased if there was a business or organisation in Kingston that would like to become a pilot project site.
