    Our insight

     

    Energy storage was viewed as risky, unknown technology when we first began pioneering battery storage. But, we knew it had untapped potential that was key to unlocking a 100% carbon-free future.

    gradient-2

    How it started

     

    AES was the first to go big into utility-scale batteries in 2007 and built one of the world’s largest battery fleets over the next decade. Siemens is one of the world’s biggest energy and grid technology providers. We joined together in 2017 to create the industry powerhouse Fluence, dedicated to innovating modern electric infrastructure.

    Our insight

     

    Transportation is the single-largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in the United States and accounts for about 1/4 of global emissions.

    gradient-2

    How it started

     

    The switch to electric represents one of the greatest opportunities to reduce carbon emissions. Electric vehicles currently make up 5% of new global car sales. That number needs to increase to 60% by 2030 to reach a net-zero future by 2050.

    Join the journey to the futureThe future is electric

    Electric vehicles currently make up 5% of new global car sales. That number needs to increase to 60% by 2030 to reach a net-zero future by 2050.

    • Introducing electric car sharing for workplaces and apartment buildings
    • Online car buying service
    • Accelerating the seamless transition to EV adoption

    Fluence, Uplight, 5B and Motor are all examples of what we call Scalable ecosystems

    It’s how we take innovative partnerships to create impact far beyond what we can do on our own to accelerate the future of energy for everyone.
