Greensmith, a leader in grid-scale energy storage technologies has announced it is on track to successfully integrate an additional four new battery types in 2014, bringing the companyâs total since inception to 12 using its battery-agnostic technology platform, now in its fourth generation. With over 23 MW of energy storage capacity to be deployed in 2014, Greensmith continues its rapid growth by serving an expanding list of strategic customers and channel partners looking to take full advantage of the companyâs proven technologies and application expertise, including frequency regulation, grid stability/deferral, renewable integration, and commercial/industrial functionality.
Refined over many years of development, innovation, and real-world deployment experience, Greensmithâs software platform enables the rapid economic integration of both current and future battery technologies, always selected and configured according to the objectives and requirements of the target application. Although the company continues to develop and deliver turn-key energy storage systems at scale, a number of customers and partners are choosing to license Greensmithâs software and integration technology a-la-carte.
âFrom the very start, Greensmith believed that the potential for energy storage lay beyond âbatteries-in-a-box,â and that robust layers of software, integration and optimization were critical to capturing its full valueâ, said John Jung, Greensmith CEO. âIt was also clear that a variety of battery alternatives, suitable for different application needs, would be available over time and therefore need to be easily integrated into a single, resilient technology architecture. So we built and advanced our battery-agnostic technology through multiple cycles of product development and delivery. Weâre quite pleased to be on pace to successfully integrate our 12th battery type by the end of 2014â and while itâs become fashionable to proclaim battery-agnosticism in the marketplace, itâs quite another thing to have actually executed and delivered the goods.â
