StorWatts -- Energy to Grow
StorWatts' mission is to enable families and small business owners in developing economies to take all of the advantages of distributed and renewable energy sources without the tradeoffs and unpredictability; giving them the clean, affordable, and relaible power to improve their lifestyle, their health and safety, and their commercial endeavors.
StorWatts is the better energy storage solution for developing economies where more than 1.3 billion people have no electricity service or unreliable and expensive electricity service. StorWatts micro-compressed air energy storage (micro-CAES) is based on the same ubiquitous and dependable fluid-power technologies found in vehicles, buildings, farm machinery, public works, and beyond. Compared to electrochemical options such as lead acid batteries, StorWatts is 5X longer lived, can operate in the harshest environments, and can be serviced and maintained locally with available tools and skillset.
In addition, StorWatts provides local entrepreneurs the opportunity to deliver relaible distributed energy as a service to local businesses and families using a micro-enterprise business model.

As the price for energy generation technologies such as solar and wind rapidly decline, storage becomes a more and more important part of the overall system. This technology offers significant advantages over existing alternatives in terms of cost, reliability and performance.

StorWatts has merged the best of both worlds when it comes to green technological innovation and community service. The team has developed a reliable and efficient prototype for off-grid energy storage that is not only environmentally friendly, but also integrally beneficial to rural communities in emerging economies.

StorWatts’ storage solution can be a game changer in the field of rural electrification through solar energy. Increasing the reliability of energy storage attacks the weakest link in the chain of decentralized energy supply in remote areas, which I believe is storage. Greater reliability means lower costs and thus the viability of different business models (loan, pay-per-use, fee-for service) that in many places are still not financially viable.
