UK-based portable hybrid power firm Off Grid Energy has announced a partnership with battery manufacturer Hyperdrive Innovation.  

The two firms will collaborate on fitting the latest version of Off Grid Energy’s ‘gridtogo’ hybrid generator with Hyperdrive’s lithium-ion batteries.

Danny Jones, Off Grid Energy’s CEO, said adding a battery to his firm’s hybrid power system will increase cost savings, further reduce CO2 emissions and help the company to “build more powerful and more efficient solutions ideally suited to the rigours of the temporary power sector”.

The system is available with outputs from 5 kVA to 30 kVA single phase and 15-120 kVA three phase, and features energy storage from 10-30 kW.  It can be fitted with a remote monitoring system and top-mounted solar PV panels, Off Grid Energy said, as well as an input connection for a PV array or wind turbine.

Hyperdrive Innovation says it is the first company to secure the supply of Nissan’s Leaf lithium-ion battery technology for its own commercial products. The firm said it is incorporating new and used Nissan-developed battery modules in its intelligent battery systems.
