The document is based on a recent combination of online questionnaires and in-depth discussions with energy storage procurement decision makers including project developers, utility representatives, and consultants. This white paper captures the growing need and focus to combine energy and power applications into a single flexible and longer-duration energy storage asset.

Key findings in this white paper include:

Smart storage purchasers are beginning to look beyond capital expense to more effective measures of lifetime cost and flexibility.

The capability of long-duration storage (LDS) to seamlessly integrate energy and power applications.

The ability of LDS to provide substantial flexibility in dealing with ever-changing regulatory and legislative landscapes, not to mention commercial volatility.

The next frontier…flexible-duration™ storage.


ESS Inc
. is poised to lead project developers, utility representatives, and EPC’s in the transition to a more flexible, longer-duration energy storage asset that can be used in many different use cases and for many different durations of time from 2-8 hours.ess-logo-high-res
