Corvus Energy designs and manufactures the world's most powerful lithium ion batteries. Corvus was founded to fill a niche for hybridization of the commercial marine industry; however the batteries have potential far beyond marine propulsion. The batteries are ideally suited to many other applications; any industrial machine with heavy power needs (such as port and dock equipment and airport ground support equipment) can now be converted to a hybrid form to reduce or eliminate fuel consumption.
