Urban Electric Power

Urban Electric Power (UEP) is a New York based company manufacturing and deploying high-capacity, rechargeable, and inexpensive batteries. Made from earth-abundant and safe materials, zinc and manganese dioxide, these batteries can be stacked to power homes and businesses for several days during power outages and recharged hundreds of times. These batteries can be recharged from a variety of sources, including solar panels and wind turbines, and can be easily incorporated in micro-grids powered by renewable resources. UEP’s vision is to provide affordable power to everyone, enabling a future where fuel is replenished on a human timescale.
