HENDERSON, Nev., June 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- K2 Energy Solutions, Inc. today announced their participation in Expeditionary Energy Concepts (E2C) 2015, the annual technology demonstration conference held by the United States Marine Corps. At E2C, select companies are invited by the Marine Corps to demonstrate technologies that can address current material and non-material capability gaps identified by the Corps. K2 will be attending as an American battery manufacturer alongside other prominent technology suppliers.
K2 will be demonstrating the Expandable Modular Energy Storage Battery (EMESB), their latest portable UPS battery. K2's innovative Lithium-Ion battery is light-weight, long-lasting, environmentally sustainable, boasts superior power and has significant safety advantages over the typical oxide based lithium-ion chemistries. The EMESB is a 2.2 kW fully portable energy storage system. It features an intelligent interface with an interactive touchscreen and inter-battery communications. The design allows for any number of EMESBs to be combined together, and K2's proprietary battery management technology equalizes the state of charge across all batteries, allowing for maximum efficiency and power delivery. This pack also incorporates K2's new advanced energy cell which is optimized for energy density and for performance in challenging environments.
"K2 is in the midst of introducing a new line of next generation cell products," says Dr. James D. Hodge, K2's Chief Technical Officer. "We are excited about this opportunity to demonstrate our new system to the Marine Corps at this prestigious event."
K2 is presently manufactures batteries for the military, most prominently through their recent $81 million contract with the Navy Surface Weapons Center for the Electromagnetic Rail Gun (EMRG) project. K2 is also a current supplier of the Ground Renewable Expeditionary Energy Systems (GREENS), a program that operates out of the Office of Naval Research. K2 has an advanced R&D program that will provide enhanced technologies and more advanced systems that will help change the future of high-powered energy storage. K2 continues to expand and develop enhanced technologies and advanced systems that will fill mission critical gaps and drive adoption and application of future high-power energy storage for military and civilian products.
