UK-based clean energy company Circuitree will launch new battery storage device Cirrus, which will enable households across the country to store wind or solarpower for use when required.

Circuitree intends to launch Cirrus to offer greater energy independence to UK homes and businesses, enabling them to use electricity on demand and reducing reliance on the power grid.

Cirrus is a saltwater battery, which offers a smart energy storage solution combining the internet of things (IoT) with renewable energy and modern battery technology. It will also help reduce carbon emissions and save users money.

Circuitree's energy independence director James Dean said: “Traditionally, energy supply has been controlled by a few very large companies, effectively monopolising the market, but this is changing and the results will be radically disruptive.

"Solar panel owners could only use solarpower as it was generated or lose it to utilities."

“Solar panel owners could only use solarpower as it was generated or lose it to utilities. Now, they can take control of their energy and gain significant savings along with their independence.”

The Circuitree system uses patented toxic-free saltwater batteries that are safe and eco-friendly throughout their manufacture, composition, and disposal. They can also outperform and outlast traditional battery chemistries.

The Cirrus battery is equipped with smart electronics and acts as an efficient automated home energy management system that can always prioritise the cheapest and cleanest source of energy.

Along with solar, Cirrus can cater to the demands of approximately 80% of a UK home’s electricity requirements every year. In addition, with the web-connected systems of the company, customers can monitor and control energy remotely.
