 Software Supplier
 Testing | Certification
 Kinectrics’ new GRIDSIM Power Laboratory is an independent facility in Toronto, Canada aimed at testing smart grid systems, renewable genera- tion equipment, and medium voltage power systems over a wide range of voltages and frequencies and at power levels up to 12MVA. They perform the evaluation, testing, certification, and standards solutions energy storage products require in support of safe renewable power integration with the grid. The lab will be able to perform testing to UL 1741 SA and associated source requirement documents, CSA C22.2 No. 107.1 and IEC 62109. Their laboratory gives energy storage products a simple, fast, and efficient path to new markets with full type-test certifications across indus- tries, made possible with large-scale grid simulation capabilities.
Thermal Energy Storage
  Chromalox designs and manufactures electric heating and control systems which are utilized with thermal energy storage systems. Their electric heaters and heat trace systems are used to preheat/charge energy storage media. Chromalox electric heating systems can also generate hot water, thermal oil, or steam for consumers from the low cost electricity generated by a thermal energy storage system.
WEH designs and manufactures high-quality nozzles, breakaways, receptacles, filters, and check valves for hydrogen refueling and has become a partner to the automotive industry in this technology. Safety, ease of operation, and the well-executed design make WEH H2 products a solution for manufacturers for H2 filling stations and fuel cell vehicles worldwide.
