30 Emerging Companies to Watch 2021
Power management represents a critical area of interest for many industrial facilities. Energy costs can be a daunting operating expense for even small companies, so identifying economical options is a high priority for many managers and executives. One answer that has been growing in popularity and effectiveness is the installation of energy storage systems.
Long-duration energy storage, in particular, poses many benefits for brands struggling with energy management. Implementing such systems offer heightened control over distributed energy resources, allowing businesses to save on demand charges, provide critical backup power to protect against grid outages, and incorporate renewables and energy storage to foster more sustainable and economically sound business practices.

We conversed with Steven Dworkin, Founder and President to get a better understanding of the company
Q. Why was the company started?
MPINarada is the North American operations for Narada Power Sources. The company was founded to assist Narada in its efforts to grow globally and focus on North America. We have become a leader of the broadest and most reliable VRLA and Lithium LFP battery solutions for data center, energy storage, and telecom markets. Our products support our vital infrastructure like the internet, banks, hospitals, utilities, renewable energy, cell phones, cable TV, and more. They keep us safe and secure, and they keep us connected. My team and I are honored to be working in an industry that matters so much to so many people.
Q. How has your company developed over the years?
We started in the telecom market with VRLA batteries to support carriers with backup power. This is a highly focused market with a need for quality products at competitive prices. We addressed this first. Narada had already had decades of experience in the telecom space and has established itself in over 100 countries with hundreds of telecom carriers around the world as an approved vendor. We are NEBS approved for the Telecom market place - which is a requirement for major carriers.
As we achieved success in the telecom market, we added high-rate Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) batteries to our product range. Over the past few years, we added lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries manufactured by Narada to our offering including telecom, UPS and energy storage. Energy Storage Systems (ESS) is our latest emerging market which is growing rapidly.
