At Manchester Metropolitan University (ManMet), a sign has recently been erected providing details about Triangulum’s solar photovoltaic and battery storage installations at the Birley Fields Campus Energy Centre.
As a key partner in Triangulum, ManMet benefitted from the installation of a Siemens lithium-ion battery, a micro-grid controller and an array of solar photovoltaic panels. These innovations complement the existing Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant and the private heat and power network on site at the University. The micro-grid controller seamlessly connects and manages assets throughout the network – reducing energy costs (less power purchased at peak times/price bands), flattening of peak demand, increasing network resilience, and providing CO2 savings via the solar PV and energy storage facility.
The sign provides students and visitors to the University with details of the impact and the benefits that Triangulum has brought to ManMet.
