The electric grid now faces a challenge: how to manage the multi-day variability of renewable energy without sacrificing reliability or cost. We are developing a multi-day energy storage technology that will enable the grid to run on low-cost renewables year-round. Our pioneering battery technology will entirely reshape the global electric system and give it new form.
Our first commercial product is an aqueous, air-breathing battery made from abundant global commodities at system costs competitive with conventional power plants. This front-of-the-meter battery would allow for a 100% renewable grid.
Formware™ is a next-generation, technology-agnostic analytic platform able to optimize over multi-year, hourly resolution data sets. It is capable of providing capacity expansion and production cost modeling as well as other complex co-optimizations to help project developers and grid planners understand and capture the value of energy storage in future grid transformation scenarios.
