  • Waxman Energy Celebrates Best Year Yet at Solar & Storage Live 2018

    Waxman Energy Celebrates Best Year Yet at Solar & Storage Live 2018

    What a show! With a bigger turn out than ever, 2018 was a great time to be exhibiting at Solar & Storage Live down at Birmingham’s NEC.

    This year saw us launch the Victron Multiplus 3000, Victron Quattro 3000 and Victron Color Control from our newest partnership with Victron Energy.

    Panels from AUO and Jinko also stole the show alongside big names such as SolaX, BYD & GoodWe who all had products on display.

    Returning to the Waxman stand for the second year was German-based battery storage leader VARTA Storage, with the compact energy storage system, the VARTA pulse. Global Sales Manager, Christopher Britzger, Sales Manager of Residential Energy Storage - Roman Jordan and Steve Saunders - UK Account Manager were on hand to discuss the future domestic battery storage and improvements to the technology.  

    A key area, 2019 is primed to be the ‘year of battery storage’ for Waxman Energy with a brand new Victron training rig already in the pipeline. This follows the already successful VARTA Storage and BYD & SolaX battery storage training days.

    Speaking of Waxman Energy’s commitment delivering expert advice on battery storage products, Technical & Business Development Manager, Ben Vinyard said:

    “It’s clear to see that battery storage is the future of British energy and I think it's going to be an exciting transition from needing a subsidy to promote solar to greener self-consuming technologies. Solar & Storage was an amazing event for us this year. The attendees were extremely high quality and all of them asking the right questions. ”

    This year's Solar & Storage was a great chance for our brand new Sales Manager's to meet and talk to current and prospective customers about their upcoming projects. Sales Manager for the North, Sarah Wallace and Southern Sales Manager, Huw Cooper,  joined Waxman Energy earlier this year alongside Ben Vinyard who took on the role as Technical and Business Manager.  The three major hires mark the growing success of Waxman Energy as the company goes from strength to strength.

  • Are you ready for Green GB Week?

     

    Are you ready for Green GB Week?

    On the 10th anniversary of the Climate Change Act, this week marks the start of Green GB Week, led by Minister of State for Energy and Clean Growth, Claire Perry MP.

    Green GB week aims to bring both businesses and communities together to celebrate the UK leadership on climate change and discover new solutions and technologies to tackle climate change - one of the biggest challenges in the world today.

    Since 1990, the UK has cut their emissions by over 40%, with clean growth placed at forefront of both the governments Industrial Strategy and Clean Growth Strategy

    Clean Growth
    Clean growth is a term used widely in the media. But what does it mean?
    Simply put 'clean growth' is all about growing our national income, whilst still cutting our greenhouse gas emissions. The UK's early action on clean growth has lead to a vast increase in low carbon technologies with this sector supporting over 400, 000 jobs with no signs of slowing down.

    In 2018, the UK produced enough electricity without burning coal for a record-breaking 76 hours which is a landmark step for the UK and our commitment to tackling climate change.

    "Our goal is to leave our environment in a better state than we inherited it, and I’m proud to say that the UK has led the world in tackling one of the greatest threats – climate change."  - Claire Perry

  • Compact Energy Storage System VARTA pulse Now Shipping in the UK with String of Successful Installs

    Compact Energy Storage System VARTA pulse Now Shipping in the UK with String of Successful Installs

    Elland, UK: After a successful UK launch, the smart energy storage system - the VARTA pulse is now ready for shipment to the UK as part of an exclusivity agreement between German based VARTA Storage and Waxman Energy of Elland in West Yorkshire.

    After successful installations across five UK test sites, the first VARTA pulse was installed in a self-built project located in the Ulster countryside in Cumbria. Home to Bill and Sharon Tyrer, the project features a 6kw roof PV array and benefits from a south facing roof meaning that his chosen ‘VARTA pulse 6’ is often full by 10am. In the first 13 days of install alone, Bill and his wife had only purchased 17p from the grid.

    Speaking of the first VARTA Storage install, Bill Tyrer said:

    “The installation was straightforward and included intuitive software which allows me to take control of my energy usage by monitoring generation, feed in, self-consumption and grid consumption. Instantly after installation, I found that I increased my self-consumption and can see for 6 months of the year I can be grid independent, hence reducing my electricity expenditure"

    With over 130 years of battery expertise and significant investment into product development, VARTA Storage has always been one step ahead with an unparalleled desire to excel in safety, quality and reliability.  The VARTA pulse 3 & 6 is no exception and features an integrated multi-stage safety concept.

    As well as being safe, the VARTA pulse line is also smart, providing seamless integration with smart homes, e-mobility and data logging. Benefiting from an open system, users have total freedom and flexibility with the reassurance that the pulse will work with their existing products.

     

    Steve Saunders, Key Account Manager for VARTA Storage UK said,

    "It was great to meet Bill and his wife Sharon and to witness first-hand how they were using the pulse system to maximise their self-consumption from their own generated energy - leading to huge savings.

    Bill's company "Dalliam" were used for installation work during the UK testing phase with Bill being so impressed with the storage system, he purchased a pulse 6 on release day for his own self-build project - what a great seal of approval for pulse"

    Wall mountable and adjustable, the VARTA pulse is available in two capacity sizes; 3.3 kWh and 6.5 kWh and measures just 60 x 69 x 18.6 centimetres, making the unit perfectly suited to domestic environments where space is limited.

    Its compact size allows for a fast one-man install, setting it apart from its competitors. Coupled with a European support base and 10-year warranty, the pulse is the perfect choice for those who wish to generate, store and monitor their own energy with full control.

    The VARTA pulse is available for purchase by contacting Waxman Energy directly or online

  • STA Investigates the Benefits of Solar Today

    STA Investigates the Benefits of Solar Today

    As shared on the Solar Trade Association's website, Angela Terry, founder of One Home: Positive Solutions  gives her thoughts on why now is the best time to revive the domestic solar installation market:

        • The prices of solar panels have plummeted, however, consumers are not aware of efficiency improvements or that the cost of an average installation has fallen to around £5,000.

       

        • Blazing hot summers are increasing the direct association in people’s minds to the power of renewable energy to reduce increasing energy bills.

       

        • Women, in particular, are increasingly looking for ethical investments that provide a good return.

       

        • The future of mobility is electric and the synergy of solar for charging electric cars is key.

       

        • Crucially, the impacts of climate change are dramatically increasing. This environmental awakening will only grow as extreme weather events intensify.
