Spider9 Spins Out New Residential Energy Storage System

A young environmental technologies company founded in the University of Michigan is offering homes the Energy Vault, an energy storage unit suitable for residential installation and applications. Spider9’s Energy Vault is an update on its older brethren, the Mega Vault, and boasts an operational lifespan of two decades, one-third more usable energy than other lithium-ion based energy storage solutions, and a greatly reduced footprint over lead-acid based systems.

The Energy Vault will run on Spider9’s own operating system, OSE, and is constructed from a lightweight space-frame for a hassle-free installation. Additional features include the option to operate independently from the grid and round-the-clock remote system monitoring. President and chief executive office of Spider9, Glynne Townsend, exclaims that the Energy Vault “combines a light weight, compact footprint, with unsurpassed levels of performance and safety at a competitive price point”.
