In a collaboration with Gridspan Energy, we are introducing Mobile energy storage transmission (MEST). MEST is an innovative solution which complements the shortcomings of conventional electricity transmission; specifically, the techno-economic inefficiencies of subsea cabled transmission and small-scale diesel generation. This novel electricity delivery solution uses modular battery systems to transport electricity from one market to another via conventional freight systems.
In essence, MEST is a flexible alternative to conventional transmission that utilizes freight logistics, energy storage technology, and regional electricity price differentials to connect markets separated by large bodies of water or other substantial geographic features. In addition to using our mobile battery systems for MEST, our systems act as a 2-in-1 Storage & Transmission Solution; providing many of same benefits as stationary storage.
