EaglePicher is aggressively developing battery solutions in the quickly emerging Grid Energy Storage Market to meet application demands. The company has established the PowerPyramid™, a patent pending hybrid solution that surpasses conventional storage techniques by leveraging the potential of multiple storage technologies. It has the capability of managing a single chemistry or multiple chemistries that provide virtually instantaneous power that will meet requirements of the various scales of power deviation occurring in intermittent renewable energy sources or grid-scale energy storage applications.
EaglePicher unveiled their 2MWh demonstrator system this year at their Crossroads facility in Joplin, Missouri. This multi-tiered battery system controls and regulates supply and demand of wind, solar and grid power. “This has been a very exciting year for EaglePicher” states Dave Lucero, Director of Alternative Energy Storage. “We have worked diligently to provide a high-energy efficient system that can be used to minimize the cost of energy storage while providing the greatest return on investment for the consumer. We are excited to be partnering with ATK and are proud to play a major role in the growing renewable energy market”.
Based in Joplin, Missouri, EaglePicher Technologies, LLC (an OM Group company) has a lengthy history of manufacturing state-of-the art batteries and systems for the defense and aerospace industries, with work in recent years to expand its expertise by developing and manufacturing energy storage solutions.
