Society’s ability to experience and maintain a high quality of life depends on energy. As older fossil fuel power plants are retired and replaced by smaller and more widely distributed intermittent forms of generation such as wind and solar - energy storage becomes increasingly vital to maintain grid reliability and security.
Energy access, energy reliability, energy security - the developed world has taken these aspects of daily life for granted. As the system response demands increase, our national security and quality of life are in jeopardy. Our immunity to disasters, personal and communal, depends on energy security and reliability. Our well-being dictates a requirement to become less dependent on fossil fuels.
ARES is committed to providing the grid-scale energy storage technology that will allow for a far broader and more secure integration of new generation technologies that reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.
