Madison County a high-tech hub

(Continued)

ANDERSON, Ind. —

The battery modules also have applications for industrial — think elevators and mining trucks — and grid operations, where the modules can help make renewable energy more available and help avoid intermittent power shortages when wind stops moving a turbine or clouds block a solar array.

By the way, some of the software that helps avoid those shortages — and excess power, when the turbines are going gangbusters — was also developed at Flagship, by Integrated Dynamics, Inc., which has been in Madison County since the 1990s.

For grid use, up to 3,000 individual battery cells are packed into a trailer, designed and produce in Madison County. Those trailers can store up to 1.2 megawatts of electricity — enough to power 1,200 houses.
