Standards

Our Bar is High

At Able Grid, we strongly believe in operating at the highest safety and environmental standards. Before working with any major equipment vendor or provider of engineering, procurement, or construction services, we employ a robust selection process based on:

Rigorous Evaluation
Cost, safety, performance, supply chain diversity, and financial standing are examples of the key elements we use to evaluate each new vendor or supplier.
Responsible Sourcing
Ethical practices in mining of raw materials and manufacturing components of our systems are critical to fulfilling the promise of the energy storage industry. We require that all cell suppliers have a sourcing policy with a clear process, third party verification, and mitigation techniques if policy violations are found. When considering the overall carbon footprint of energy storage systems, we always take into consideration what happens at the end of a project’s life.
Decommissioning
and Recycling
We work with leading cell manufacturers who recycle approximately 75% of raw materials found in lithium-ion cells. Minimizing non-recyclable waste and maximizing component recycling also reduces the cost of decommissioning.
