C-Rate Solutions was created to meet demand from a new industry. During his tenure as CEO and founder of the word’s first industrial energy storage company, Brent Perry, CEO of CRS, saw many energy storage manufacturers struggling to find their way in the industry. Where he and his team found success, he saw companies with excellent products focusing on the wrong markets, struggling with operational inefficiencies or poor understanding of where their products provide value to end users.

Meet the Leadership Team
So in 2009 I founded an energy storage company that become, if you what the vessel that I could build to realize how a company should run. While other companies were focussed on the obvious markets like automotive and grid energy storage, we focussed on a sector that had never been explored – heavy industrial and marine hybrid. Put together as a package, it was then and is now a very compelling idea. After five years of developing the industrial energy storage industry, it become apparent that there are a lot of companies that would benefit from my acquired knowledge. This was the driving motivation to create C-Rate Solutions; to not only help other companies build better, bigger, stronger, faster and less expensive energy storage products, but also make it a lot more purpose-driven and thus drive the positive change in the world that is so important to all of us.
