Manchester Science Partnerships (MSP) has invested more than 400 000 GBP in an advanced energy strategy as it seeks to become a self-sufficient “energy island”. This investment by the science and technology park operator includes installation of a Tesla Powerpack system outside its flagship HQ, the Bright Building at Manchester Science Park, along with two new charging points for electric vehicles. The project has received grant funding from CityVerve – Innovate UK’s smart city demonstrator project in which MSP is a lead partner.

The system at the Bright Building has been installed with four Powerpacks and one inverter. It is a flexible, scalable battery system, with, in this case, the ability to have up to sixteen additional Powerpacks added to it if the requirements for the building increase on a power and/or energy level. MSP will be monitoring the cost savings and CO2 reduction in the coming months, with a view to installing further units at other Bruntwood buildings and developments, such as Circle Square, Alderley Park and Innovation Birmingham.
