Hybrid-Electric BuildingsTM

Intelligent. Efficient. Resilient.
AMS's Hybrid-Electric BuildingsTM Project deploys large networks of battery systems in targeted buildings where electric utilities need grid support. AMS can seamlessly shift an entire fleet of buildings from grid power to battery power providing real time support to the electric grid. Building owners get paid for being part of the solution to today's energy challenge.
