Thank You, Supply Chain Heroes

Urban Electric Power, Inc.
Based in Pearl River, NY, Urban Electric Power, Inc. (“UEP”) typically develops and manufactures high-capacity, rechargeable and reasonably priced 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.

To help meet the urgent demand for medical and sanitizing supplies, UEP has shifted production to make hand sanitizers and battery power packs for ventilators. While some raw materials needed to be outsourced, UEP was able to utilize its existing equipment and process know-how to move quickly to make hand sanitizer. With the national focus on ventilators, the components of battery backup systems are consistent with UEP’s existing product line, so the conversion required little in the way of process augmentation. UEP’s chain of operations have changed slightly as new suppliers and customers have been engaged, and different process methods have been implemented. However, UEP was able to utilize much of their existing systems to quickly make this pivot and deliver these essential supplies to those in need.

Our thanks to the UEP Team – a perfect testimony to their collective innovation in addressing challenges and providing solutions.
