SAN DIEGO COUNTY, Calif., Dec. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- EPC Power Corp. (EPC), an innovator in energy storage power conversion technologies, provides the power conversion technology for use within the latest generation of the Lockheed Martin GridStar® storage system. Lockheed Martin's GridStar® is a high-quality, compact, turnkey energy storage system with the ability to shift load demand in time, improve grid stability, provide backup power and more. GridStar® is fully factory commissioned, easy to install and boasts a footprint equivalent to a typical vehicle parking space. Lockheed Martin recently deployed its newest generation of GridStar®, available in a range of power and energy levels up to 500 kW and 1350 kWhr.
Today, GridStar® energy storage systems are in use across Canada and the United States. Lockheed Martin relies on EPC's conversion technology to maximize their performance under a wide range of grid conditions. The first-generation GridStar® system utilized EPC's 375 kW inverter. Building on the success of those systems, the latest GridStar® system incorporates a choice of EPC's 500 kW or 250 kW inverters, enabling GridStar® to meet increasing performance demands in the field.
"We're proud to play a role in the success and share in the excitement of GridStar®, and to have supplied Lockheed Martin with premium power conversion since the first commercial GridStar® systems were introduced to the market," says Allan Abela, EPC's Chief Commercial Officer. "The ongoing GridStar® partnership is a vote of confidence from Lockheed Martin, and it will help bring the benefits of EPC's conversion technology to more users globally."
Lockheed Martin Energy's GridStar® product portfolio includes GridStar® Lithium for short and medium duration applications and GridStar® Flow for longer duration applications.
