Training takes place on the 2nd May and 7th June
In exclusive partnership with Waxman Energy Ltd., VARTA Storage has been evaluating the market for home energy storage systems in UK and Ireland since autumn 2017. As a result the first VARTA pulse home energy storage systems will be installed at the end of June 2018. Successful operation of the system requires correct and safe installation of the device. Therefore Waxman Energy Ltd. offers two free installer training days for the first time. The technical training which will take place on 2nd May and 7th June, at Waxman Energy in Grove Mills in West Yorkshire, will qualify attendees as approved VARTA installers.

VARTA Storage will be represented by a Technical manager at the training and will demonstrate the complete installation of our home energy storage system VARTA pulse. The small, compact storage system for private households is available in two sizes: 3.3 kWh and 6.5 kWh. It can be installed in only 30 minutes and is designed to be “plug and play” .The pulse system is compatible with all sources of green energy. This means that the end user will see an increase in self-consumption rate reducing costs and minimizing the payback period especially as the UK and Irish governments cut feed-in tariffs in future.
The training day is divided into two parts. At first the participants will learn everything about the technical details of the system, the transport of lithium-ion batteries and the preparation of the installation location. Afterwards there will be a live demonstration of the installation, the connection to the grid and finally the commissioning process will be demonstrated.
In the afternoon the installers will hear about the ability of the VARTA energy storage system to communicate with PV data logger, Smart Grid and Smart Home applications via VARTA’s proprietary virtual system “VARTA Connect”. The real-time data of the system with graphs and statistics can be monitored through the online portal or the VARTA Storage App. Following this we cover topics such as accessories, safety, warranty and portal registration, maintenance and repair.
