What We Do
UEP’s core technology revolutionizes the chemistry found in alkaline primary batteries (e.g. double AA) and makes it rechargeable. This trusted 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. The battery cells are modular, scaling from residential to commercial to utility applications.
UEP batteries serve a number of vital energy storage applications, including backup power, uninterruptible power supply, microgrids, and demand management. Our batteries are effective for both off-grid and grid-tied systems and are safe to use indoors.
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.
