Powin Energy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Powin Corporation (OTCQB: PWON), announced today that it has been invited by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) to participate in the development of industry protocols for measuring and quantifying the performance of energy storage applications. PNNL has invited technical experts, utility companies, manufacturers and leaders in the renewable energy industry to help identify key applications and storage metrics that will set the stage for a formal standards process with an appropriate standards body.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with PNNL and industry leaders in the development of energy storage measurements and protocols,” said Michael Morse, Vice President of Operations for Powin Energy. “This important effort will help accelerate the development of innovative solutions that support our region’s renewable energy goals,” Morse added.
The DOE’s protocol development effort addresses the industry’s urgent need to define and measure performance characteristics for energy storage technologies and applications. The development of the protocol will allow technology developers, power grid operators and other end-users to differentiate energy storage technologies and evaluate their performance. The PNNL process will provide transparency and uniformity in how performance is measured.

PNNL’s research strengthens the U.S. foundation for innovation, and it helps find solutions for not only DOE, but for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the National Nuclear Security Administration, other government agencies, universities and industry. Two important goals of PNNL are to increase U.S. energy capacity and reduce dependence on imported oil through research of hydrogen and biomass-based fuels, and to reduce the effects of energy generation and use on the environment.
