The company’s value proposition is largely centred around its HybridOS energy management system platform, which Brandt told us in a previous interview is aimed at being like the Microsoft Windows of energy storage; the platform is designed to allow asset owners to access the full range of applications and market opportunities available.

In addition to his role at FlexGen, Brandt is chair of the energy storage division at the US Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA).

The interview you’re about to see was recorded at the 2024 Energy Storage Summit EU in London.

The discussion spans a lot of areas: from why a company with a foothold in the US is watching the UK and European markets with great interest, the role of the energy management system (EMS) in solving operational and availability challenges, to how economic growth and growth in energy demand go hand-in-hand and much more.

Later in the year, we anticipate launching an online interview series with energy storage industry experts, insiders and thought leaders exclusively for Premium subscribers, so again, stay tuned for that.
