Storage Solutions

Storage technologies are becoming more efficient and economically viable.  US Department Of Energy administered $185 million of funding to procure 16 large scale energy storage projects with a combined capacity of over 0.53 GW.

Lithium Ion batteries is one of the fastest growing energy storage markets due to their high energy densities, high power, near 100% efficient and low self-discharge.
