The company says their new brand reflects the company's commitment to ethical energy and building sustainable, "green-engines" .

EDMONTON — Grengine™ announced it has named Erin Rand as its new CEO, while founder and former CEO, Connie Stacey, will move into a new role as CTO. Formerly known as Growing Greener Innovations, the company also publicly announced its new corporate brand: Grengine™.

The company says their new brand reflects the company’s commitment to ethical energy and building sustainable, “green-engines” that allow anyone — commercial organizations, government entities, and remote communities — to access clean energy.

The Grengine™ Power System adds a tool in the face of power grids under pressure. Its ability to pair with any energy source – solar, wind or even the grid – and create a stable, uninterrupted energy supply reportedly alleviates risk, cost, and uncertainty. North American made, they say the system does not require engineering or technical support to set up, operate, or maintain. The batteries can easily be switched out or stacked on top of each other, like building blocks, to provide as much energy as is required, and is plug-and-play.

“Economic growth correlates directly to access to energy. Giving someone enough energy to read at night is good, but you have to also be able to build on that capacity if you want to help someone better their life,” said Stacey. “When one in seven people around the world rely exclusively on candlelight, being able to deliver clean, portable, energy that can be scaled up or down to meet their needs is a fundamental game changer.”

Grengine™ manufactures its systems entirely in North America. The company has its own facility in Edmonton and is planning to expand with new manufacturing plants in other North American markets in the next three years. The batteries themselves are chemistry-agnostic, meaning they can be built with any combination of metals and chemistries.

Projects featuring Grengine’s™ patented technology for “modular energy storage systems and related methods” are already underway with the Canadian government and its Department of National Defence, the International Minerals Innovation Institute (IMII), an indigenous community in rural Canada, and other organizations.

“The Grengine Power System is helping Canada create a greener future by reducing emissions, and saving Canadians money,” said Canadian Federal Cabinet Minister, Mary Ng. “In the face of global climate change, our government knows the only way forward is to help develop and support green energy solutions, like the Grengine initiative.”
