A Word From Our New CEO

Change is how you know you’re growing, a sentiment that applies as much to Powin as it does to the entire energy storage space. I’m proud to say that Powin’s Q3 2023 was characterized by bold change and growth in our innovation, our partnerships, and our global workforce.

In Q3 2023 Powin:

  • Joined forces with Apex Clean Energy to support IKEA’s commitment to clean energy
  • Teamed up with partners in the global supply chain to bring manufacturing to the United States
  • Signed an 8GWh Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Vena Energy

As Powin’s new CEO, I’m honored to be part of these changes, and to lead Powin into the future. Thank you for being a member of the Powin community. Together, we’re doing the important work of realizing a carbon-free tomorrow.Jeff Waters,

Powin CEO

Powin Power

There’s a New Way to Power Our World

Energy storage is an essential part of our transition to a brighter tomorrow. But not just any energy storage will do. We need clean, abundant, and resilient energy storage now more than ever. And that starts with rethinking how we power things. It starts with relentless innovation. We’re proud to be doing our bit to redefine the energy landscape so that more people can access clean energy when they need it most.

Watch this video to gain a deeper understanding of Powin and what sets us apart.

Our energy future looks bright

A Huge Win for The Energy Storage Supply Chain

One small step for batteries, one giant leap for the US energy storage landscape: In a decisive move for Powin, we recently secured supply agreements with key partners that are expanding manufacturing capabilities in Tennessee, Georgia, and South Carolina. This means that starting in 2025, we will source 5 GWh of US-made battery technology and components annually.

The significance of this goes beyond ensuring we have a steady supply of high-quality battery cells and will also boost domestic production capabilities. Powin’s investments in the US supply chain underscore our commitment to quality, on-time delivery, and local economic growth.

Case Study

Texas Grid Gets 500MWH Boost Powered by Powin & Apex

As a grid that remains disconnected from neighboring states, the Texas grid is forced to be self-sufficient. This is why, in the face of increasingly extreme weather events, grid resilience and reliability have become top priorities for Texas. And that’s where a new collaboration between Powin and Apex Clean Energy comes in.

When completed, these energy storage projects will add 500MWh capacity to the grid, generating over $24 million in tax revenue and an estimated 100 new jobs. But beyond the numbers, this game-changing collaboration will help strengthen and modernize the Texas power grid while adding flexibility and resilience.

Exploring the Powin Battery Lab

Power You Can Feel. Innovation You Can Trust

Our unwavering commitment to battery performance and quality is at the core of everything we do because we understand how vital system performance is. It’s why we launched the Powin Battery Lab in 2020.

This world-class battery test facility enables us to characterize and validate all batteries from cell to system. Equipped with the latest testing facilities, equipment, and specialists, the Lab plays a central role in establishing better performance guarantees, warranties, control processes, and strategies for each of our products.

Looking Back On Industry Events
