Efficient Sustainable Electrification

What we do

Our focus is on the design, build and supply of hybrid power solutions to marine, vehicle and off grid markets. Energy Solutions supply the full range of products needed to build fully integrated power, monitoring and control systems.

Our innovative solutions have given focus for many years towards a sustainable and resilient energy future. With the fast progression of renewable energy markets, the importance of combining different sources of power into a hybrid renewable energy system (HRES) has gained more attraction to our clients for the efficiency and cost savings, security in downtime and flexibility in integration.

Hybrid power energy solutions can be complex. As we continue to grow our highly creative team of engineers, designers and builders, our understanding and modelling of hybrids puts us at the forefront of the industry, meeting the demands of increasingly sophisticated end users.


Marine is Energy Solutions’ longest established market area, since 1996 we have been working with leading OEM boatbuilders, superyacht owners, boat yards and individual sailing and motor yachts. As well as helping clients find power and control systems that fit their requirements we continually strive to introduce new, innovative products to our customers. We research, design and manufacture in house and provide new ways for our clients to attract customers and set themselves apart in terms of look, efficiency and technology. Working with products from the world’s leading manufacturers we are able to offer clients fully designed systems incorporating all elements form helm panels to tank senders.

Off Grid

We are the UK’s leading supplier of off grid power systems supplying high quality hybrid power systems to residential and commercial customers across the UK and internationally for whom connection to the grid is not a viable option. Our range of Off Grid Solutions includes EasyGrid – a plug and play hybrid solution for homes and businesses looking for a straightforward, affordable way to generate their own power and Containerised systems – robust, semi bespoke systems ideal for isolated projects. We work with off grid power for a variety of sectors including Residential, Farming, Construction, Commercial, Leisure, Glamping, Broadcast, Monitoring, Humanitarian Aid, Utilities and Telecoms.


With service, work and recreational vehicles using an increasing amount of tools, equipment and electrical devices onboard there is a growing demand from automotive builders and owners for power & monitoring systems that offer reliable yet sophisticated capabilities. Energy Solutions provides a range of onboard power systems and services for vehicles that allow you to buy or develop the system that is right for your needs.


The move towards net zero and a more sustainable world is driving the electrification of many vehicles and onboard equipment that would have traditionally been powered by fossil fuel combustion engines. Energy Solutions' extensive experience and engineering expertise in battery and inverter systems position us well to support and assist clients as they progress towards their own sustainability goals by developing new ways of powering their systems.

Our Story

Back in the day, I was living life on the water. I’d bought a 38-meter Dutch Barge—a sturdy vessel with character. But it wasn’t just about leisurely cruises; it was a pivotal moment that would change my trajectory.

The barge community is tight-knit. Fellow barge enthusiasts introduced me to some Dutch manufacturers. These folks were engineering marvels.

Their products fascinated me. The precision, the innovation. So, in 1994, armed with determination and a dash of madness, I took the plunge. Energy Solutions was born. A small team—just a handful of us—set up shop. Our passion grew wings, and so did our team. Today, we’re a team of over 90 engineers, production technicians, logistics, sales, and service staff.
