We are excited that Wei-Tai has joined us as we begin to serve global customers.”

Kwok said: “Coming from the solar energy industry I have been on the lookout for a viable, large-scale energy storage technology that can be tapped into when the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing.

“For a 100% renewable energy future, which I believe we will achieve in our lifetimes, we must develop commercially viable, scalable, safe and low-cost energy storage solutions like the technology Amber Kinetics is innovating.”
