How it Started?
Introducing Qbots, an smart energy tech startup based in Innospace, Manchester. Qbots started in May of 2017, with Dr. Li Yao and Vijay Natarajan with the goal of bringing new capabilities in data processing and analytics to the energy industry while taking advantage of advancement in energy storage solutions.
After being accepted onto Exeter City Future’s Accelerator Programme in June, Li and Vijay were able to start turn the concept of energy storage into a reality.
ECF gave us the platform and help we needed. We received great opportunities being part of ECF such as meeting with Exeter City Council to look at different sites where they already had solar installed, from this we did a feasibility and impact analysis report . We created a detailed design for one of the sites -Livestock centre with a 500 KW /500 kWh of Li-ion battery storage system. Throughout the time at ECF we were working towards Demo Day, where we were able to showcase a prototype version of our system with an attractive dashboard.
