Specially engineered control software is used to ensure the bricks are placed in exactly the right location each time. The system is modular and flexible with each plant having a capacity of between 10 and 35MWh and a power output of between 2 and 5MW. The system is ideally suited to longer duration storage but with very fast response times can also be used to deliver short and medium term.

Hydropower operators need accurate water inflow predictions to generate energy most profitably. In snowmelt dominated catchments (1/4 of the world’s hydropower), uncertain snowmelt quantities deteriorate inflow predictions resulting in overall losses of 7-10%, annually. Our solution to this problem includes data from multiple satellite constellations, ground station networks and numerical weather forecasts to derive real-time snow quantities as well as forecasts in a 20 m spatial resolution for entire mountain ranges. Using scalable cloud processing and innovative machine learning algorithms, we are capable to serve hydropower stations globally.
