KORE Power Inc., the nation’s leading U.S.-based developer of battery cell technology for the energy storage and clean energy industry, announces it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with Mesa Technical Associates, Inc., an integrator of large-scale battery energy storage systems (BESS).
The MOU allows KORE Power and Mesa Technical Associates to form a strategic alliance and increase business opportunities for both companies. In addition to traditional DC power systems for utility substations and telecom systems, Mesa provides full integration, construction and services for large-scale BESS, making the company a perfect fit to deploy KORE Power’s 1500V Energy Storage System (ESS).
“Mesa is a trusted provider of critical power systems and services to leading electric utilities such as Con Edison, Exelon and AvanGrid,” said Lindsay Gorrill, CEO of KORE Power. “This partnership is a wonderful opportunity to equip Mesa with our state-of-the art, American-manufactured technology as it moves forward into the energy storage market. Together, we can help stabilize our nation’s grid by offering secure, reliable infrastructure to its 200+ utility customers.”
“We are excited to announce our partnership with KORE Power, a leading U.S.-based manufacturer of lithium-ion batteries for energy storage systems,” said Howard Gartland, president of Mesa Technical Associates. “The combination of Mesa and KORE Power creates a uniquely positioned solution to meet the electric utility industry’s needs for reliability, resiliency and cybersecurity in the energy storage market. Mesa’s experience servicing the critical power needs of utilities, combined with KORE Power’s domestic manufacturing capabilities, are ideally suited to meet the high standards and growing demand for energy storage systems on the U.S. electric grid.”
