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.

Through our partnership with AMPD Energy, Bowmer & Kirkland made the switch from diesel to battery power with their first Enertainer at Goods Yard, Stoke-on-Trent.

Using the Enertainer they have replaced 1000kVA equivalent of diesel generators with one battery energy storage system charged at 28A from the grid. The battery system has allowed Bowmer & Kirkland to reduce diesel consumption by a whopping 147,313 litres, and counting! This in turn has enabled them to celebrate a 386 tonne CO2e saving in just a year, the equivalent of 167,826 commutes into Stoke on Trent.


Transforming the construction landscape at the Olympia Redevelopment in London.

“When we were approached by Ampd Energy, we immediately saw the opportunity to help eliminate diesel from sites, particularly to power large tower cranes with high power demands. Each one of these Ampd units removes a 500kVA generator and all its associated emissions, noise, space, and cost. It is a significant step forward to lessen the environmental impact of essential construction activities.”

“We are excited by the platform’s ability to transform construction and are proud to be partnering with industry leaders like Select and Laing O’Rourke, as we continue our journey towards making this a reality. We look forward to building on this first deployment over the course of 2023, powering cleaner, cheaper construction in the UK and across the world.”
