Motivated by Technology

Technology is at the core of every major advancement in human society. From the Wright brothers’ first flight at Kitty Hawk to the first man on the moon, from the discovery of penicillin to the rise of robotic surgery, advanced technology makes it all possible.

We are motivated, every day, by the possibility of moving technology forward in order to leave the world a better, safer, happier and healthier place than we found it.

 

BUILD KNOW-HOW BY DOING

With a 125-year track record as the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, it would be easy to pat ourselves on the back for a job well-done. Nothing could be farther from reality.

Our goal is, and always has been, to develop and lead with innovative technology designed to deliver the best possible experience for our customers. That means investing resources in the next technology – like lithium ion – and spending the time necessary to evaluate and choose the right chemistry to deliver a safer, more reliable experience for our customers. It also means staying true to our heritage by enhancing a proven technology such as our Thin Plate Pure Lead products and adding carbon to the plates in order to increase energy throughput by a factor of three.
We pursue these challenges because it’s our strongly held belief that know-how is built by doing, not observing.

Our goal is, and always has been, to develop and lead with innovative technology designed to deliver the best user experience possible.

LEADERS INNOVATE

Sounds interesting, right? It is. But it doesn’t end just end with a battery. We are focused on other areas like designing an innovative modular product development strategy that will pay dividends for our customers in all the industries we serve with faster product development, increased product reliability and scalability. Imagine a power system that can scale as your business grows, allowing you to address your baseline power needs, not what you might need at the peak. It’s much easier to buy and install a new module or two instead of an entire pack. Ownership ease needs to be mirrored with operational ease and development of patented wireless chargers is an example of our focus on reducing complexity and risk for customers.

Our acquisition of Alpha Technologies means we are the industry leader in Cable Broadband and Telecommunications network power infrastructure solutions. We could easily take our foot off the gas pedal and coast. We have chosen instead to double our efforts in those markets with everything from our collaboration with Corning to rollout streamlined 5G deployment solutions to our next-gen DOCSIS 3.1 enabled power systems that supports RF network diagnostics and high-speed data backhaul.

In essence, we take a macro level view of energy storage and power management to build systems to provide greater value for our customers.

We are motivated, every day, by the possibility of moving technology forward in order to leave the world a better, safer, happier and healthier place than we found it.

DECISIONS BASED ON KNOWLEDGE

We’re also working on new ways to gather product information through secure and reliable IoT infrastructure. Combined with the deep product and application knowledge in EnerSys we can provide holistic and incisive insights to maximize the utilization, performance and life of assets. What if you had the ability to know the health and risk of every battery, battery charger, power supply and other component in your system or network allowing you to resolve potential problems before they become real problems that could impact your bottom line? How about the ability to dynamically optimize your batteries for variables like temperature or weather forecasts in order to extend battery life, maximize performance and preemptively prepare for a storm? We already have that ability in many of the industries we serve and are leveraging that know-how to bring this advanced functionality to all.

EnerSys Operating System

While we develop new technology for customer systems, products and services we are equally keen on exploiting it for increased quality and customer support. We manage this through our EnerSys Operating System which is deployed throughout the organization and underpins a customer focused and lean culture that emphasizes continuous improvement.

WE CARE WHAT'S IN THE BOX SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO

At the end of the day it’s all about partnering with customers to identify the challenge and choose the right technology from our broad portfolio to deliver the best solution. That’s what we care about. Understanding and developing technology enables us put the best parts and pieces in the “box” so you don’t have to care about it. You just know it works.
