Describe your company's current technology and solutions
TROES Corp. is a Canadian-based, Advanced Battery Energy Storage Systems manufacturer, specializing in Intelligent Distributed Energy Storage solutions.

TROES develops, designs, manufactures and delivers safer (LiFePO4-tech, rigorously tested and UL/UN certified), longer-lasting, cloud-based BESS's integrating owned proprietary IIoT and AI-based modular Battery Packs, Battery Management Systems, Enclosures & Power Conversion System.

Serving the CII markets, TROES differentiates itself by offering “Customized-Off-The-Shelf”, scalable designs covering wide range of applications (56kWh

Are you aware of any current government challenges or opportunities that would be addressed by using your technology solution? Or a future need you can identify?
Currently, our customer base covers commercial, industrial and institutional sectors as well as communities. The major “pains” in these market segments we provide “reliefs“ are:
1. Peak problems: higher and higher energy demand caused by electrification of everything (i.e. more people, more devices, more Electric Vehicles), causing expensive peak demand charges, power supply instability especially during extreme weather conditions and disaster or special situations.
2. Greater waste of renewable energy (as renewable resources grow) due to instantaneous power generation and lacking of proper technology to store.
3. Growing voice on off-diesel, GHG/carbon emissions/footprint reduction initiatives
4. An alternative technology is required to replace the dirty, noisy, low efficient and high operation costly diesel generator and an alternative technology to replace short life cycle, high maintenance cost, corrosive, toxic and low energy density Lead-Acid battery.
5. Big trend on decentralized energy requiring a proper technology to store and adjust the load generated by all kinds of decentralized power source
6. High cost of bring natural gas generator to support power stability and resilience in some of the commercial and industrial uses.
7. TROES comes up with advanced energy storage technology and systems combining hardware and software to solve a series of cost, environmental and resilience problems caused by existing by grid system or diesel generator system.

As the COVID crisis continues, please describe specific opportunities where your technology might support Canadian needs / government needs
TROES Systems can help in at least two situations:
1. a. The “Stay at Home” mode due to CoViD-19 has created extra electricity demand from the grid for the Residential segment to cover the now day-round “active” house. At the same time the Commercial segment (i.e. Offices, Hotel, Factories, Hospitals etc) still absorbs a great amount of energy with the total electricity demand to be in some areas much higher than before, creating major electricity distribution/supply problems.
b. The Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS's) can alleviate this power grid congestion. The BESS's can support the grid -- Non-Wires Alternative application.
2. a. CoViD-19 pandemic outbreak is creating a rather continuously shifting demand for medical infrastructure -- location wise, and with that potential bed shortage challenges
b. Our technology could support stakeholders seeking to solve COVID-19's- (or any other emergency- and crisis-) induced potential bed shortage challenge with mobile units -- i.e. hospitals, new mobile medical units, nursing homes, community centers, disaster and emergency response units, Armed Forces etc, by providing BESS's, which will supply the required energy, either as primary source or as backup power -- on- or off-grid (i.e. remote areas; integration with renewables/diesel generators).
Other relevant stakeholders could be:
Private Sector: EPC/Renewable Project developers/Energy engineering and management/Property developer and management/Field-indoors farming/Telecom(Cell Towers)/Mining/Data Centers,
Public/NFP Sector: Governments (on Federal, Provincial, Municipal levels), Military, Eme on Green Energy, CleanTech etc policies/projects - i.e. on buildings retrofitting, Global adjustment, De-carbonization credits, Demand response.
