Ampd Energy, an Earthshot Prize finalist, pioneered the use of battery energy storage systems in urban construction. In partnership with Select, AMPD Energy deployed the UK's first Enertainer at Laing O'Rourke's London Olympia Redevelopment.
Compared to fossil fuel generators, the Enertainer reduces carbon footprints by up to 90%, is significantly quieter, emits zero air pollutants, and eliminates diesel handling and usage risks.
With very few moving parts, the Enertainer requires minimal maintenance and zero refuelling downtime. Additionally, as an IoT-enabled device, the Enertainer can be remotely monitored anytime and anywhere, providing a deep level of data to enable enhanced decision-making. The Enertainer is the first energy storage system in the UK able to power such large construction equipment, an important development as the entire sector seeks to deliver projects more sustainably.
