About Us

Leading The Energy Transition

Our Mission

Safe, Reliable, And Built To Last

The next decade is critical for transforming the way that we generate, transmit, distribute, and consume electricity as a global society.
Our mission is to lead the sustainable transformation of the outdated electric grid through increased renewables penetration, non-wires alternatives, and power decentralization.

Our safe and cost-effective energy storage solutions are revolutionizing the way energy is generated, transmitted, and distributed for utilities, IPPs, and energy consumers worldwide. Our energy storage systems are helping to mitigate the economic and environmental impacts of climate change by ensuring that no energy is left to waste.
