SPI 15 - SimpliPhi Power Showcases 98% Efficient Storage Solutions Without Hazardous Cobalt or Heat Mitigation Requirements at Solar Power International

Schneider Electric, ZeroBase, Lotus Energy to illustrate SimpliPhi technology performance in the field at September 17th energy storage workshop

Ojai, CA September 9, 2015 - Launching their long standing energy storage battery technology into the light-commercial and residential markets, SimpliPhi Power, is collaborating with Schneider Electric, ZeroBase Energy, Lotus Energy at Solar Power International to demonstrate the benefits of eliminating hazardous cobalt chemistry in Lithium-ion energy storage and management solutions. Founded in 2002 (and formerly known as Optimized Energy Storage), the SimpliPhi Power battery technology utilizes lithium ferrous phosphate with proprietary architecture and power electronics to deliver energy storage solutions that are non-toxic, lightweight and do not require costly and bulky heat mitigation.

Visitors to Solar Power International (SPI), held in Anaheim, Calif., from September 15-17, can visit SimpliPhi at Booth #7505 at the Solar Home or attend the free workshop, ‘SimpliPhi Power Storage On/Off Grid Optimization: Commercial, Residential & Remote.' Attendees will learn about real world applications of SimpliPhi technology at Los Angeles Department of Water and Power and the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, among others.

"Whether for residential, commercial, emergency, military or entertainment markets, our customers use SimpliPhi's safe and reliable energy storage solutions for power security and resilience on or off the grid, as well as for peak shaving," said Catherine Von Burg, CEO of SimpliPhi Power. "Our products do not generate heat or require ventilation or cooling and do not pose the risk of thermal runaway characteristic of lithium cobalt based batteries, and this creates significant efficiencies and savings for any given installation."

These energy storage benefits will be showcased in SimpliPhi's participation in the SPI Solar Home as well as the free workshop the company has organized with Schneider Electric, ZeroBase and Lotus Energy.

"Integrated solutions for homes and businesses that increase optimization, efficiency and savings are the future of a variety of markets, from energy generation to new construction and smart home technology," said Doug Wicks, product manager for off-grid systems and battery-based inverters at Schneider Electric. "We have been very impressed with SimpliPhi products' ability to be able to replace lead acid batteries directly with much higher performance as well as having no need for ventilation or cooling. These and other technology innovations, such as their modulatory, make for a remarkable energy storage solution."

"As a leading innovator in operational energy and resiliency for our country's defense and security forces, we have used SimpliPhi's energy storage technology to meet the need for reliable power in the harshest environments." said Jaron Rothkop, president and CTO for ZeroBase Energy. "ZeroBase systems with by SimpliPhi batteries have passed through the U.S. Army Aberdeen Testing Center's stringent safety and performance testing and been qualified as safe, non-hazardous power and energy solutions for the tactical edge."

"Consumers are growing more savvy about the energy they use and where it comes from," said Jeevan Golf, president of Lotus Energy. "We're excited to present our case study on outfitting an award-winning on-grid and off-grid smart home in New York state utilizing 48 SimpliPhi Power batteries. No other battery supplier out there could match the power density, compact, lightweight and modularity we needed to meet the requirements of this home."

The SimpliPhi Power technology has been serving the film and entertainment industry since 2002, with fully grid-integrated and grid-independent systems being installed since 2010. SimpliPhi Power storage solutions eliminate heat mitigation requirements and offer a 98 percent efficiency charge and discharge rate. SimpliPhi technology utilizes patented, licensed lithium ferrous phosphate cells with state-of-the-art proprietary management boards, circuitry, cell architecture and methods of assembly to create safe, intelligent and energy dense storage and management systems. In addition to offering seamless integration with all industry standard inverter charge controllers, SimpliPhi Power solutions are modular and scalable with a lightweight form factor - all backed by a 10-year warranty.
