A New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) award will help support the design, development, prototyping, scale-up and installation of the large scale lithium ion energy storage system. The system will integrate lithium ion batteries, ultracapacitors and renewable-energy generation sources, including wind and solar, and will allow utility companies and renewable energy generators to intelligently manage energy for consumption or storage.

Ultralife is organizing and leading a collaborative team composed of partners including academic institutions, industrial and consulting businesses to develop the system to store and mange power generated from any source for use at optimal peak times.

"We are extremely pleased that Ultralife has chosen the WindTamer wind turbine to be a component of this system," said William A. Schmitz, Chief Executive Officer of WindTamer.
