Industry can best deliver on aspirational goals if policy and decision makers encourage transitional technical pathways

Pintail Power has been operating in stealth mode over the last few years: researching the needs of power producers and load serving entities, patenting a portfolio of technical concepts, refining product line opportunities, building relationships with equipment vendors and EPC contractors, and working within professional associations to develop technical standards to guide a mix of storage solutions. We learned industry can best deliver on aspirational goals if policy and decision makers encourage transitional technical pathways, such as novel hybrid storage + generation assets designed to leverage reduced-carbon fuels under development.
