United around a shared vision

At CEL, we believe that future-proofing our energy systems requires longer-duration, long-term solutions that don’t cost the earth.

Our flagship eTanker storage system is built around a commitment to sustainability, ensuring a minimal environmental footprint from design through manufacturing and recycling.

By repurposing off-the-shelf hardware from the automotive and compressed natural gas industries, our technology ensures longer cycle-life, capital cost reductions, financial savings and, most of all, long-term sustainability. Underpinned by a customer-first approach and a continued commitment to innovation, we are dedicated to helping clients to optimise their energy use and achieve their decarbonisation goals for a greener, cleaner planet.
