WHAT WE DO
Today’s generation doesn’t meet tomorrow’s needs.
There is a new requirement for assets to be very flexible
- High ramp rates / responsive startup
- Low minimum generation (zero or negative is even better)
- Short start-up time
Inflexible Generation is not economically sustainable
- Many plants face operating frequently at a loss and frequently cycling
- Frequent shutdowns increase O&M costs and shorten equipment life
This creates emissions challenges at startup.
Inflexible Generation assets can result in renewable curtailment.
Our BolderBloc™ storage technology converts legacy thermal power generation into state of the art, storage + generation assets at a fraction of the cost of new generation or storage. It offers unlimited cycling with greater than 30-year life.
- Repurpose thermal generation plants that currently use steam turbines
- Baseload power plants can be converted to peaking plants
- Dramatic improvements in ramp rates and start-up time
- Unlimited cycling, 30-year life
- Simple and modular technology scalable for all applications
