Our technology will reduce waste within the existing energy infrastructure, and unlock the potential of renewables for a sustainable future.
GRID-SCALE ENERGY STORAGE
Energy drives all processes. Producing and using energy efficiently and cleanly is essential to our future.
Less than 1% of the daily energy used in the US can be stored on the grid.
95% of this storage is pumped hydroelectricity, a legacy technology where excess energy is used to pump water uphill to a reservoir, for later release through a hydroelectric generator.
U.S. DOE (2017) “Global Energy Storage Database Projects.”
We aim to bring widespread electrochemical storage to the grid for use anywhere, anytime.
