WILLIAMS ADVANCED ENGINEERING COLLABORATES WITH NETFFICIENT TO DEVELOP ENERGY STORAGE FOR HOMES

Jun 7, 2016

Williams Advanced Engineering is working with European consortium, NETfficient, to design, develop, integrate and validate stationary energy storage in buildings on the island of Borkum, Germany.

With an increased demand for smart energy storage and efficient management, Williams Advanced Engineering is working with Nissan Europe to demonstrate how electric vehicle battery storage technology from its cars can be repurposed to help power buildings in combination with solar photovoltaic (PV) energy.

NETfficient, which is co-funded by the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, is addressing the main challenge faced by the energy industry today of being able to utilise solar, wind and tidal power in a reliable and cost effective way. The project will use locally available renewable energy sources and then store and distribute it, in an effort to create a fully self-sufficient community on the island of Bokrum.

Having developed energy storage systems for Formula One racing and subsequently for other motorsport, automotive and energy applications, Williams has been able to use its experience and expertise to help demonstrate this application in a real world environment with NETfficient.
