ESS partners with CWL Energy to develop energy storage opportunities across Canada


The companies will collaborate to deploy ESS Inc. Energy Warehouse systems across Canada’s industrial, remote community, mining, and utility sectors, using CWL Energy’s MultiGen Energy Platform (EP). MultiGen EP incorporates distributed energy resources, such as wind, solar, and battery storage, utilizing adaptable energy management software to optimize renewable energy use in a customer’s electricity supply.

“This partnership with CWL Energy gives our company an immediate presence in the fast-growing Canadian market,” said Craig Evans, ESS Inc. co-founder and CEO. “Our low-cost, long-duration Energy Warehouse is ideally suited for the range of applications this market offers – from load shifting to integrating renewables, reducing supply intermittency, and providing grid-quality ancillary services.”

Trevor White, CWL Energy Vice President of Business Development and Special Projects, stated, “We are excited to establish this partnership with ESS Inc. Our target markets and opportunities align well, we believe in the inherent benefits of the technology, and it will be an integral part of our deployment of sustainable energy projects.”

“There are many battery technologies available today, but none with the aggregated benefits of ESS Inc.’s all-iron flow chemistry,” added Claude Mindorff, Manager of Special projects at CWL Energy. “With its low cost, clean and safe composition, long-duration storage capacity and utility-grade operating life, the Energy Warehouse™ offers the range of performance and value metrics our clients need.”
