Work for Powervault: Projects Assistant

POWERVAULT

Powervault is the leading UK-based home energy storage manufacturer. The Company’s mission is to make home energy storage as commonplace as a dishwasher; reducing energy bills whilst also interacting with the grid to make a decentralised, 100% clean energy system possible.

The lead product is an advanced, integrated battery and control system. The Powervault 3 stores surplus solar generation and low-cost electricity from the grid to use when the customer needs it. It is capable of interacting with and controlling other household appliances, forming the foundation of the smart home and increasing demand flexibility. Groups of Powervaults can be aggregated and controlled remotely to support the smart grid, helping maintain network frequency and reduce local peak constraints, as well as allow partners to buy and sell energy to trade in the wholesale market.

Powervault launched in 2014 and has developed multiple award-winning products, with an approved patent. The Company has secured over £2m of innovation funding and prizes from BEIS, Innovate UK, Climate KIC, Nesta and the Prince’s Trust and others, and £5.5m in private equity predominantly from Crowdfunding (including the world’s fastest cleantech crowdfunding activity). Powervault is targeting a trade sale in the next 2-3 years realising a 10 X return for its investors. The energy storage market is now entering an exciting new phase with the rollout of smart meters and new business models and market opportunities.
