WattJoule is a provider of engineering services and technology development with key expertise in Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries (VRFB). We were founded in 2012 by Dr. Frank Gibbard and Greg Cipriano, experienced entrepreneurs in the energy business, and knowledgeable about difficult product development challenges. Our technology is based on over $10 million worth of early R&D work funded by the DOE, DOD, and the NSF starting in 2010. WattJoule now has an IP portfolio consisting of patents, exclusive licenses, and trade secrets.
WattJoule’s “Think Globally, Act Locally” business model embraces a holistic cost reduction spiral for energy storage solutions, utilizing an open innovation approach combined with large strategic industrial partners, both upstream and downstream in the VRFB value chain. WattJoule has a world-class team that is based on strong entrepreneurship, deep technical experience in hardware product development, and a commitment to realize our vision.
Our primary customers are large strategic energy companies focused on the Long Duration Energy Storage (LDES) market that seek our unique expertise and industry network for next-generation VRFB deployment with 50% reduced cost. Typically, our customers are looking to own and operate over 20-year time periods or greater. For these customers, we offer engineering services for feasibility, planning, deployment and for investor grade due diligence across the entire VRFB supply chain. We offer additional custom engineering services as required, to support the specific regional value proposition roadmap. Our secondary customers are strategic stakeholders throughout the VRFB supply chain that may require our engineering services and technology in order to facilitate the deployment of the ElectriStor™ platform.
