Fractal EMS founders helped deploy the first battery storage projects in ERCOT, PJM and the Hawaiian Islands (coupled with solar and wind generation). This includes development experience with two prior control systems, the first deployed at the South Pole telescope over twelve years ago. We’ve been there to see the industry, technology and markets change and have accumulated a wealth of experience in installation, integration, commissioning, testing, O&M and even firefighting. Through storage operations we learned the advantages and disadvantages of control system design, functionality and usability. Fractal EMS represents a culmination of years of experience and a modern approach to energy storage controls. We already knew how to do controls, what was lacking, and we wanted to make something better for the industry with best in class functionality and deployment capability.
