Armada Power rises above strong field of innovators to win Start@ETS at Energy Thought Summit (ETS22 Power Up)

We believe Armada Power is a true game changer with our ability to transform an ordinary household appliance into storage that actually helps the grid with no negative impact to consumers.”
— Timothy J. (T.J.) Harper
COLUMBUS, OH, UNITED STATES, April 18, 2022 / -- Armada Power, an energy technology company invented and headquartered in Ohio that empowers cooperatives and utilities to use their customer’s electric water heaters as energy storage and grid resilience resources without compromising the availability of hot water, earned first place in the innovation-driven Start@ETS competition at the Energy Thought Summit (ETS22 Power Up) event held April 11-14, 2022 in Austin, TX.

Armada Power’s Chief Engineer, Eric Rehberg, delivered the winning Start@ETS pitch titled “Residential Thermal Storage as a Grid Resource.” Start@ETS was designed to offer a platform for inventors and innovators to pitch their most brilliant ideas to utilities, cities, and investors. More than 30 applications were initially submitted with the Top 12 startups advancing to the preliminary rounds in March. Of those 12 presentations, six were then chosen as finalists with each giving their final pitch on the main stage at the Energy Thought Summit in Austin.

Deployed across ten states and Canada, Armada Power distinguished itself through a case study revealing how its patented, millisecond response system created a single-event, cold-load pickup savings of $40,000 for an Ohio multifamily property, post grid outage.

Throughout the Start@ETS process, the judging panel selected top companies from five S.C.O.R.E. categories: Sustainability, Customer Experience, Optimization, Resilience, and Electrification. Evaluation criteria included overall team, business model, level of innovation, and if the solution would solve key problems faced in each S.C.O.R.E. element.

“All of the finalists gave powerful presentations, but we believe Armada Power is a true game changer with our ability to transform an ordinary household appliance into storage that actually helps the grid with no negative impact to consumers. Winning is validation to the industry that this group of judges confirms our position,” said Armada Power President, Timothy J. (T.J.) Harper.

“I am honored to represent such a great team, technology, and company,” Rehberg said. “A lot of people have worked really hard to get us to where we are and it’s great to see it paying off.”

The Energy Thought Summit (ETS) is an annual 4-day, immersive conference hosted by Zpryme that brings the world’s thought leaders together to debate the state and future of energy. The 2022 event marked the conference’s ninth year and delivered “rousing talks, engaging panels, interactive workshops, and thought-provoking dialogue to make for a unique and unforgettable experience.”
