Mitchell Ishmael
Active Energy Systems

Mitchell is utilizing a saltwater material to store electricity as thermal energy. The method provides a much cheaper alternative to providing onsite backup power for customers than standby generators or batteries, and is expected to encourage the installation of more distributed, renewable power generation.
