ElectricFish Receives California Energy Commission Grant to Accelerate Production
Berkeley, California -- ElectricFish Energy, Inc., an energy storage as a service company, today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued a new patent No. #11,007,891, which strengthens its position as an innovator in the distributed energy resources and EV fast charging markets.
The patent, titled “Fast Electric Vehicle Charging and Distributed Grid Resource Adequacy Management System”, covers the system-level design of a self-contained battery-integrated charging unit and network architecture which enables hybrid energy storage services for EV Charging and local electricity providers.
As EV adoption ramps up significantly, risks to electrical grid resilience will also mount as grid infrastructure will be overwhelmed by the additional energy loads brought on by EVs. This patent enables ElectricFish to capture share in the fast-growing DC Fast charging market with a grid-friendly approach and also deliver reserve capacity back to utilities as they experience increasingly strain-inducing peak loads amid the EV transition.
“The newly issued patent demonstrates our commitment to a more sustainable and resilient energy future,” said Anurag Kamal, co-founder of ElectricFish. “We are excited to support utilities amid the rapid shift towards mass transportation electrification and power communities using 100% renewable energy.”
ElectricFish will be bringing this patented technology to market this Summer with partner gas stations in California, where they will serve extreme-fast charging (XFC) to EV drivers while helping utilities adapt to volatile energy needs during the upcoming wildfire season.
ElectricFish Energy, Inc. was founded in 2019 by battery researchers, hardware engineers, and repeat founders with the mission of bringing reliable and equitable clean power to communities. ElectricFish is headquartered in Berkeley, CA, and is a climate tech company building and deploying innovative energy storage solutions to power a grid-resilient transition to electric vehicles.
