Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability
ARES produces no emissions; uses no fossil fuel; does not require water;
creates no hazardous waste; requires no harmful extraction of materials;
and can be cleanly decommissioned with no lasting impacts.
ARES energy storage facilities are scalable from a 10MW ancillary services installation up to a 2-3GW regional energy storage system.
Extensive Site Options
ARES sites are abundant in arid regions coincident with wind and solar
resources — maximizing transmission resources by providing storage at the point of intermittent generation.
An ARES system operates at a constant high efficiency over its full range of power output regardless of discharge state.
Lower Capital Cost
ARES’ cost is approximately 60% of an equivalent power pumped - hydro facility.
Lower Operating Cost
ARES has the lowest annualized capacity cost per kW of comparable
