Grants


Department of Energy

Seeo was awarded $6.2M from the Department of Energy as part of the Smart Grid and Energy Storage demonstration program. This 4-year project supports development and deployment of a battery pack using Seeo’s proprietary nanostructured polymer electrolyte. The battery pack is targeted for utility-scale storage operations with an initial focus on Community Energy Storage applications.


Seeo was selected for a $4.9M award from the Department of Energy’s Vehicle Technologies program. The project supports development of high-energy solid state cells suited for electric drive vehicle applications. Independent performance, reliability and safety testing are being conducted in accordance with automotive industry standards for lithium-ion batteries.


With support from the Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative, Seeo has partnered with SunEdison to develop an Energy Storage System (ESS) that pairs Seeo's battery pack with control analytics designed to optimize performance of a joint solar and energy storage installation.  The program combines a field demonstration with an evaluation of financing structures that can be deployed to accelerate the adoption of distributed PV with advanced energy storage.

Califomia Energy Commission

Seeo received a grant from the California Energy Commission in support of the Department of Energy Smart Grid and Energy Storage Demonstration program. The Energy Commission grant provides cost share funding to Seeo.
