Johnson Controls honored for its distributed energy storage products
Nine companies including Johnson Controls received the award, which recognizes Wisconsin’s leading manufacturers who have contributed to the state’s economic growth through the development, manufacturing and marketing of new and innovative products.
“Innovations we’re seeing from Wisconsin companies of all sizes in all industries is a main reason the state’s economy continues to grow,” said Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. “I am proud to recognize these inventive products that keep the state’s economy moving.”
Johnson Controls launched its new distributed energy storage product in October 2015. Johnson Controls is bringing its world-class battery technology and building systems expertise to the growing energy storage market through its L1000/L2000 Energy Storage Systems.
