AFFILIATION:   FreeWire Technologies, Inc., San Leandro, California, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

Track: Energy & Resilience
Area: Energy Storage
Tech Readiness: TRL 7

Tech Brief: The Mobi Gen is an energy storage system designed to replace portable diesel generators. It incorporates energy-dense lithium batteries previously used in electric vehicles (termed “second-life”). The system is powerful (outputting up to 30kW and storing 48kWh), clean, quiet, and highly mobile. Variants include a self-propelled or trailer-mounted option.

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: The Mobi Gen is a clean and quiet lithium battery energy storage system that adds resiliency to forward operating bases, outposts, and any other military installation. By storing solar energy, the Mobi Gen can mitigate an installation’s dependence on diesel or gas, thereby reducing the need for tanker trucks and fuel shipments. It can also island from local grid utilities, thereby adding additional resilience. Lastly, the unit is completely mobile, so armed forces can take it with them as they move bases or even reconfigure their base operations.
