    PolyJoule, Inc. | Fixing Grid Volatility at its Endpoints with Ultra-Safe, Green Energy Storage

    Presentation Start-ups

    The unsolved problem of the renewable renaissance is to fix transmission and load volatility at its endpoints, urban load centers. PolyJoule aims to solve this deliverability problem: use ultra-safe, sustainable, long-life, and low-cost batteries that can be deployed to urban load centers, en masse, anywhere, to defer transmission upgrades, eliminate the need for higher emission peaking generation, and provide decentralized distributed grid backup and support.
