Pioneering multi-day energy storage technology

Transforming the grid to be fully renewable

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 Hardware System

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.

Our Software System

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. 

Technology Applications

Firm Renewables over any weather event or season

Transmission Capacity without new wires

Reliability without thermal generation

Multi-day resiliency during grid outages

Key Advantages of Our Technology
