Problem Primus is Solving
Primus Power is a modular and cost effective energy storage. The challenge with electricity grids is stability and consistency. Primus provides consistent power through a smart battery technology solution.
By using high performance batteries we can improve energy efficiency, and in the future, with these types of innovations, the datacenter could effectively operate independently of grid capacity constraints.

The Primus Solution
Primus is creating a power grid for the 21st century through smart grid storage with long duration flow batteries. These patented, liquid batteries provide flexible capacity from 25kW to 25MW of electricity.
Primus’ EnergyPod provides 5 hours of energy discharge and a long twenty year life span. The company’s innovations provide for more robust systems and high power density that create consistent power performance and reliable cost ratios for their customers.
Why Chrysalix Invested
Energy storage as a distributed energy resource is often described as the missing link of the electric power grid, as transformer and distribution towers and other infrastructure ages.
Back in 2009, 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 for clients across North America and a growing international footprint.
