Urban Electric Power revolutionizes energy storage with safe, affordable zinc-battery technology. Our mission is more than energy: reliable access to electricity is critical to public health, education, and economic well-being.
What We Do
UEP’s core technology revolutionizes the chemistry found in alkaline primary batteries (e.g. common household AAs, AAAs) and makes it rechargeable at scale. This century-old battery chemistry is now reliably rechargeable, thanks to breakthrough technology advancements.
Our battery utilizes earth-abundant zinc and manganese dioxide, which provide high energy density, low self-discharge, and are safe to operate and handle.
UEP batteries serve a number of vital energy storage applications, including backup power, uninterruptible power supply (UPS), microgrids, and demand management. Our batteries are effective for both off-grid and grid-tied systems, and serve as a ready replacement for lead-acid batteries.
Who We Are
As chemists and engineers, we take great pride in creating innovative and effective technologies to help solve some of the world’s most pressing energy challenges. Our team’s diversity of background and expertise is emblematic of our shared identity as New Yorkers.
