concept of Energy Cube is straight forward; a complete, self-contained
power system in a single module that can be delivered, positioned,
connected and is ready to go.
What makes Energy Cube different is in the way it integrates a number of
energy sources to achieve the most efficient operation possible in terms
of emissions, fuel consumption and running costs.
The standard Ecube come in different
capacities but consist of:
A portable, vented container which carries a diesel
genset, inverter-charger, battery pack, fuel tank and standard monitoring
system. Solar panels and wind turbine can be easily integrated if they are

Choosing Energy Cube means you don’t need to
construct or adapt a dedicated building or space to
accommodate your power system. Neither do you need to
provide for bunded fuel storage. Also, as the system
comes pre-tested and ready to go, there is little to do
in installation terms other than connecting to your
power network. So you don’t have the cost of an
expensive technician on-site with considerable savings
to be made, therefore, in terms of cost and time.
Low emissions, low running
As a hybrid power system, Energy Cube is able to
make use of energy generated by both renewable and
conventional means. A diesel generator is used as a
power source when the integral battery bank requires
charging or energy demand is at a high level. Under
these conditions, the generator is called up
automatically. When power demand is modest, the
inverters deliver power that has been stored in the
batteries. Energy that is generated by optional
renewable resources (wind and solar power) is used to
support the loads and, where there is excess, to keep
the batteries charged up. When conditions are good,
demand for the generator can be substantially reduced
with the obvious benefits in terms of fuel consumption
and running hours.
Efficient use of energy
What makes the Energy Cube concept really clever
is how the battery is used as an electrical flywheel.
When power demand is low, which is in fact for the
majority of the time, power stored in the battery is
converted into mains energy by the inverters. During
periods of sustained higher power demand, when cooking
sunday lunch for example, the generator will run.
Switching between the two sources is seamless so you
don’t know that it’s happened. When power demand is at a
maximum the inverters and the generator work together
through a feature called ‘Power Assist’. This way the
generator does not have to be sized to cover the maximum
load and energy is borrowed from the battery to make up
Putting all this together means generator running time
is kept to a minimum keeping fuel consumption, emissions
and service needs to absolute minimum; it also means
noise is restricted to the shortest possible periods.
Sophisticated control and
The whole system is managed and controlled
through a sophisticated monitoring network that displays
information on battery condition, system performance and
fuel tank levels on an LCD panel. The panel can also be
repeated in a main building.
Flexible and adaptable
Energy Cube comes in a number of standard
configurations to suit modest, average and higher power
demands. There are a number of optional features that
can be added to the standard system that include wind or
solar PV input, remote web-based monitoring and control,
high-grade sound attenuation as well as the possibility
of accommodating individual requirements.
