HCP’s life science properties are configured in business park formats in core life science markets and typically include multiple facilities and buildings.
“At HCP, we take pride in delivering best-in-class facilities for customers,” said Tom Klaritch, HCP’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “Sustainable building operations that incorporate renewable energy, integrated and efficient subsystems and now, stationary battery systems like those from Primus, provide savings that benefit all of our stakeholders, in addition to supporting our corporate sustainability initiatives.”
Primus EnergyPods are long duration flow batteries that store electricity from the grid during times of low price and demand, and release it back at times of high price and demand. Utilities can use long duration batteries instead of fossil-based systems to satisfy peak power needs, defer costly system upgrades, and shift mid-day oversupply of renewable photovoltaic generation to evening peak periods.
The Company’s flow batteries are currently shipping to U.S. and international commercial/ industrial, data center, microgrid, utility, and military customers.
