ElektrikGreen develops and produces clean energy hydrogen storage systems that are environmentally-friendly and more efficient than traditional battery storage systems. Our patented technology provides a zero-carbon solution that is effective at capturing renewable-generated energy and converting it to electricity on-demand, when needed.
We’re changing the landscape of energy storage by providing a residential and commercial hydrogen-based energy storage product that is greener and more sustainable than any other storage solution on the market today.
We want our customers to have a cleaner, more sustainable choice for storing the energy they’re generating from renewables such as solar and wind or the energy being supplied by the grid in a distributed system. By offering a hydrogen-based storage solution, we’re helping people become more energy-independent while ensuring they won’t be stranded without power.
