Manchester continues to retain its smart city status as it invests in yet another initiative to boost the city’s operations.

The City of Manchester’s ongoing push to become a smart city took another step forward this week, as the Manchester Science Park (MSP) installed a Tesla Powerpack System, as part of the CityVerve Project

MSP has invested over £400,000 in its energy strategy installing Tesla’s Powerpack System outside the Bright Building, along with two new electric car charging points, hoping to reduce its carbon footprint through wider use of renewable energy.

“MSP and Bruntwood are committed to investing in our buildings, utilising cutting-edge technology to both improve the experience of our customers and reduce our carbon footprint,” Tom Renn, Managing Director at MSP, said.

“We have bold plans to harness the opportunities provided by advanced energy and the pilot installation marks a key milestone in our advanced energy strategy.”

Tesla’s Powerpack system has been installed with four Powerbacks and one inverter; with the capability to have up to 16 additional Powerpacks added on request, if building requirements increase on a power or energy level.
