Founded in 2002, Premium Power Corporation manufactures the world’s lowest cost, grid scalable flow batteries based on the company’s proprietary Zinc-Flow® advanced energy storage technology. Our products are lower in cost than lead acid batteries up front and roughly equivalent to pumped hydro, at under 2 cents/kWh, on a long-term basis. Our Company is headquartered in North Reading, Massachusetts, USA.

Our products offer a number of compelling advantages over alternative energy storage technologies. Primary benefits include:

* Lower initial cost and total cost of ownership;
* Longer operable life with an unlimited number of cycles;
* Fully integrated systems that can be trailer mounted to reduce installation and relocation time and cost;
* Greater energy density; and
* A wide degree of packaging flexibility.

Commercial applications include:
