The Technology Early Deployment (TED) is a process where innovative technologies are selected for assessment and review based on the technology application, team strength, and alignment with the Technology Priority Maps, to fulfill the California decarbonization challenge. These technologies are all winners of Cal Tech’s Rocket Fund technology challenge.

TED was sponsored by the Electric Power Research Institute and Southern California Edison’s Emerging Technologies Program. These new technologies were selected for TED because they support California’s clean energy goals of increased energy efficiency, reduced GHG emissions, energy storage capacity and demand flexibility.*

* These technologies are not endorsed, recommended, or favored by EPRI or SCE or are the product or company described herein
