Problem Primus is Solving
Batteries for grid scale applications must last decades and deliver long duration energy discharge on-demand. Primus Power has developed a modular and cost effective energy storage solution that provides consistent power with long duration flow batteries.
By using high performance batteries we can improve energy efficiency, as well as our ability to use variable energy sources like wind and solar power. In the future, with these types of innovations, the datacenter could effectively operate independently of grid capacity constraints.

The Primus Solution
Primus’ patented, liquid batteries provide flexible capacity from 25kW to 25MW, for stationary, grid scale applications. Primus’ EnergyPod provides five hours of energy discharge and a long twenty-year life span. The company’s innovations provide for more robust systems and high power density to yield grid parity pricing and dependable performance.
Why Chrysalix Invested
Energy storage as a distributed energy resource is often described as the missing link of the electric power grid.
Nearly a decade ago, Chrysalix did a deep dive to anticipate the future evolution of energy storage applications and what that meant for the ideal emerging technology. Primus Power’s solution has valuable differentiated characteristics and a path to outstanding low cost. To date, they have demonstrated a proven technology with installed systems in the field.
