Health, education and economic opportunities are all compromised without access to energy. Children cannot study or do homework in the dark. Without access to computers, the internet or other electricity-dependent technology, children and adults alike are not able to keep pace with those in electrified communities. Without electricity, communities often lack access to vaccines and medicines because hospitals and healthcare facilities do not have the power necessary to keep drugs refrigerated.
ExprESS allows people to generate, store and use their own power without relying on centralized infrastructure. The mobile, non-toxic lithium ion battery-powered AC generator stores electricity and provides instant, reliable power in remote areas, during emergencies and whenever the grid is intermittent or unavailable. ExprESS can be charged with solar, wind, diesel or grid power. It can optimize or completely replace diesel generators that are polluting and expensive to fuel.
ExprESS can supply reliable, mobile power to anyone, anywhere in the world to power any device. Our initial deployments of this technology have been to help schools, emergency centers and medical clinics -- increasing social equity through access to energy.
Mission and Vision
As former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon once articulated: “Energy is the golden thread that connects economic growth, social equity, and environmental sustainability....Widespread energy poverty condemns billions to darkness, to ill health, to missed opportunities.” SimpliPhi’s vision is to empower people globally to generate, store and utilize their own sustainable, reliable and affordable clean energy, eradicating energy poverty and creating prosperity, social equity and sustainability.
The ExprESS is a mobile, non-toxic lithium ion battery-powered AC generator and Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) that stores electricity for use when and where power from the grid is intermittent or unavailable in remote areas and in emergency and black-out situations. The system’s supply of instant, reliable and uninterrupted power is even available during extended blackouts.
ExprESS can be charged with any source of energy, including solar, wind, fossil fuel or grid power. It can optimize or completely replace diesel generators that are expensive to fuel and service, loud and environmentally polluting. ExprESS has the potential to have the same impact on energy access that cell phones have had on communications access -- allowing people to generate, store and use their own power today without relying on centralized infrastructure to deliver the power they need.
The ExprESS is available in 5.4 kWh/24V or 7 kWh/48V models — providing a sufficient power reserve to operate computers, appliances, AV equipment, refrigerators, power tools, fans, electric blankets and medical equipment for hours or days at a time.
Because it is enclosed in a NEMA-3 rated cabinet on wheels, ExprESS can be deployed inside or outside in a wide variety of commercial and emergency use cases. ExprESS is safe for indoor use, is non-toxic, environmentally benign, poses no risk of fire, and does not require ventilation or cooling. It is also suitable for outdoor use in temperatures up to 122°F.
ExprESS provides a safe, non-toxic, reliable and mobile power solution capable of providing power on a single charge for days at a time. It can be recharged by any power source, including solar, wind, diesel or the grid.
