We are a country of mover-shaker risk-takers, if something doesn’t work, we fix it. That’s what it means to be Made in America. We’re explorers, dreamers, dare-to-believers and we’re working hard to make this nation stronger for all the future proud-to-be Americans. Sustainable. Resilient. Strong. American.
If there is one thing we know how to do in America, it’s to innovate. And, if there is one type of American we know can get the job done – any job – it is our nation’s servicemen and women.

There are 2.5 million inactive oil wells in the United States, and that number continues to grow. Texas-based startup, Renewell Energy, is out to convert 700,000 of these abandoned wells into giant mechanical batteries, enough to power the entire U.S. grid.
And they’re doing it with what they sum up as a “fancy regenerative wench,” weighing in at 10,000 pounds, fondly referred to as Artemis Prime. Renewell’s energy storage solution is highly valuable to wind and solar industries whose power is intermittent and based on the weather.
