Utilities and the Future of Energy: Meet Maxwell in New Orleans for DistribuTECH

Utilities and the Future of Energy: Meet Maxwell in New Orleans for DistribuTECH

| Yayoi Suzuki

Where better to have in-depth discussions about efficient, reliable and cost-effective grid energy storage than at DistribuTECH?

The theme of this important conference is "Utilities and the Future of Energy," and that's reflected in the topics to be covered at the New Orleans event, including:

  • Emerging power system needs
  • Improving power reliability
  • Distributed Energy Resource (DER) integration
  • Enhancing system energy and performance
  • Enabling new electricity markets

Maxwell invites attendees looking to build-out their near and long-term energy storage strategy to join us at booth #10829. Discover how our ultracapacitor-based energy storage systems address these topics and more.

Meet with Maxwell at DistribuTECH

Meet and speak with our grid energy storage experts
Our team, including Dr. Kim McGrath, Ph.D., MBA, Maxwell's senior director, Technical Marketing and Business Development, will be on hand to answer your specific questions about ultracapacitor (supercapacitor) technology and its applications in grids and microgrids. Share with us your wish list of applications to be addressed and we can tell you how to check-off that list with Maxwell's latest advances and system solutions. The systems on display in our booth were designed by our unparalleled engineering, research and development teams to help resolve the most pressing challenges that utilities and grid operators face today.

On display!

Grid Energy Storage System (GESS) Grid Energy Storage System (GESS) - utility scale energy storage

Maxwell's GESS can be sited at utility distribution, substation, sub-transmission, fossil and renewable power plants. The system dispatches power and energy to the grid to minimize costly transient grid events. The GESS includes advanced interfaces for two-way communications, monitoring, and control to utility, microgrid, and commercial/industrial communication networks.

Grid Cell Pack (GCP) Grid Cell Pack (GCP) - configurable for microgrids and manufacturing facilities
This is the solution for project developers and system integrators for microgrids, remote grids and commercial/industrial facilities. The Grid Cell Pack dispatches power in milliseconds and can be deployed to stabilize frequency, provide voltage support, smooth renewable power output and provide bridging power as a stand-alone energy resource or when combined with batteries.
Generator Starting Solution (GSS) Generator Starting Solution (GSS) - reliable, rapid starting for gensets
Compared with lead-acid batteries, Maxwell’s ultracapacitor-based GSS starting technology provides higher reliability, fast start time, long life, less maintenance and superior cold temperature performance. Ask our team for a copy of a case study featuring a US-based global telecom customer’s application of the Maxwell GSS. If you manage an NFPA 110 site, get a copy of our NFPA 110 compliance diagram ahead of the conference.
Get hands-on with Maxwell’s 3-volt XP™ technology Get hands-on with Maxwell’s 3-volt XP™ technology
Have you ever held an ultracapacitor? We will have our 3-volt XP Series ultracapacitor cell product line on display and you will have the chance to check it out up-close. Get a true feel for our technology’s lightweight, cylindrical design and learn about its versatility for smart meters. With two decades of experience in the design and manufacture of ultracapacitor storage and power delivery technology, our expertise has enabled us to respond to market needs once again with this new line of small and large cell solutions.

See you soon in New Orleans!
