Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been very vocal about his disdain for short-sellers, especially those who he claims are manipulating the stock market.
The what company makes the 1.2 million-mile battery is a question that many people are asking about Ray Blanco’s Secret Tesla Project. The BESS Stocks are stocks that were purchased by Ray Blanco, and he plans to sell them at a profit.
We’ll talk about Ray Blanco’s newest presentation on a “Secret Tesla Project” and a new “game-changing technology” he’s calling “BESS” today.
BESS is a $1.2 trillion potential, according to the presentation, that’s “expected to explode 12,100% in the next years.” One that has the potential to “deliver the greatest genuine wealth-building opportunity since the birth of the internet” to early investors.
Sounds interesting, but what exactly is BESS? Is it genuine?
To discover out, I decided to go through Ray Blanco’s presentation and investigate his assertions. And I’ll show you all I learnt in this essay.
To begin, I’ll dissect his general forecast and argument. Then I’ll disclose the stock I believe he’s teasing, the “Perfect BESS Investment.” Finally, I’ll give you the lowdown on Technology Profits Confidential, the advice service he’s offering, to help you determine whether it’s appropriate for you.
Dissecting Ray Blanco’s “BESS” Prediction
Ray Blanco’s BESS forecast was introduced to me via a St. Paul Research presentation, and my first thought was, “What on earth is BESS?”

BESS stands for Battery Energy Storage Systems, according to Ray Blanco.
He describes it as a “combination of two game-changing technologies that have been combined to produce one new disruptive technology.”
The first breakthrough concerns the energy storage battery itself. Large-scale lithium-ion batteries, according to Blanco, may eventually replace conventional fossil-fueled power plants.
The second “game-changing breakthrough” that makes BESS so amazing, according to Blanco, is artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Big batteries, he claims, are still a “stupid” technology on their own.
When you “train” them with artificial intelligence and machine learning, he claims, you get “BESS,” a “really unique smart technology.” This works as a “computerized network of smart batteries that can “think” for themselves,” according to the researchers.
This invention, according to Blanco, is so revolutionary and disruptive that it has the potential to be 1,000 times bigger than the internet.
BESS is building the groundwork for a new digital network that has the potential to become 1,000 times bigger than the internet.

Tesla, it seems, is at the heart of it all…
According to my current study, Tesla’s secret BESS project will be a part of the biggest ground-floor opportunity I’ve ever discovered…
What is Tesla’s connection to BESS?
What Is “Tesla’s Secret BESS Project?” and What Does It Mean?
Ray Blanco’s argument is heavily reliant on what he refers to as a “secret project” that Tesla is working on in Texas.
However, Tesla isn’t the business he’s promoting.
Instead, he cites Tesla to illustrate his point, implying that Tesla is at the vanguard of the “revolutionary BESS surge” he mentions.
To what “secret project” is he alluding?
Blanco is referring to a Tesla company called Gambit Electricity Storage that is constructing a massive 100-megawatt battery that will be plugged into the Texas power system to assist stabilize the state’s energy supply.
He also mentions that Tesla is doing this in response to the February 2021 winter storm that wrecked havoc on Texas’ electricity grid.
In brief, Texas’ natural gas, wind turbine, and nuclear power facilities were affected by sub-zero temperatures, resulting in widespread power outages and rising energy costs.
According to Ray Blanco, this exposed a flaw in Texas’ energy infrastructure while simultaneously providing Elon Musk with a “huge opportunity.”
According to Blanco, this is why Musk relocated to Texas and “registered a covert project” named Gambit Energy Storage LLC, which is based in Angleton.
It’s questionable if it’s a “secret project,” just as it’s controversial why Elon Musk moved to Texas. However, Blanco is correct in his assessment of the enterprise as a whole.
As an example, Tesla’s subsidiary, Gambit Energy Storage, is developing huge batteries to assist stabilize the grid by storing energy from renewable sources such as wind and solar. Not just in Texas, either.
Tesla has already “placed BESS battery projects in 40-plus nations across the globe,” as Ray Blanco points out. According to him, this gives them a “strategic footing” in the energy sector.
Tesla’s success, it seems, is due in part to something called “Autobidder.”
What exactly is it?
I’m not an expert on this technology, but from what I’ve heard, it’s sophisticated software that’s connected to some of Tesla’s big batteries and used to monetize them.
Tesla claims that:
Autobidder allows independent power providers, utilities, and financial partners to monetize battery assets on their own.
What is the relationship between Autobidder and Ray Blanco’s BESS thesis?
BESS, as previously said, is said to be made up of two parts:
- Large batteries, as well as
- Artificial intelligence and machine learning are two types of artificial intelligence.
And, similar to what Blanco did with Tesla’s batteries, he’s using Autobidder to demonstrate how the second half of BESS – the software – works.
Autobidder, according to Blanco, is what links Tesla’s BESS systems:
And, believe it or not, Autobidder is the only platform that links all of Tesla’s Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS).
I don’t know anything about energy storage or Tesla’s operations. So I’m not sure how true the statement above is. Autobidder seems to be the software that links Tesla’s big batteries, despite the fact that I don’t believe Tesla uses the word “BESS.”
This technique, according to Blanco, is linking huge batteries all across the globe. From Texas’ “huge” batteries to a slew of smaller ones in private residences, batteries are everywhere. And that these massive batteries, when coupled with software such as Autobidder, are forming a massive “battery internet.”
They’re working together to build a digital network of energy storage batteries that will wrap around the globe as your central nervous system does around your spinal cord…
In the end…
This global network of BESS controlled batteries…
Will function as one massive “battery internet”…
BESS technology, along with increasing demand and decreasing lithium-ion battery costs, means we’re “standing on the ground floor of a new 122X battery boom,” according to Blanco.
According to him, BESS technology has the potential to disrupt “as much as $100 trillion in economic assets” and “open one of the biggest wealth creation events in human history.” And he seems to believe that three particular “disruptions” will occur in the near future.
BESS: Is It Really a $100 Trillion Disruption?
Ray Blanco states during the presentation that the “time is right” to become engaged with BESS and that this technology has the potential to disrupt $100 trillion in economic assets.
It’s a “radically disruptive, category-killing technology,” according to Blanco. And he specifies three major ways in which he believes BESS will alter our world.
Let’s take a look at each one separately.
“The Internet of Energy” is the first B.E.S.S. disruption (I.o.E.)
According to Ray, the simplest way to understand how disruptive BESS will be is to think about how disruptive the internet was. Before the internet, he claims, we had a more centralized, top-down system in which there were only a few locations to obtain information.
However, due to the internet, not only has knowledge become accessible from almost everywhere, but many individuals have begun to contribute to the dissemination of information via blogs, Youtube, and social networking sites.
He compares it to how disruptive BESS will be, except 100 to 1000 times larger, with practically everyone with electricity being able to connect to “The Internet of Energy,” as he refers to it.
This will, according to Blanco, “radically convert the antiquated power infrastructure into a digital network of smart energy” and “turn off the lights for major power corporations.”
“The $100 Trillion Collapse” is B.E.S.S. Disruption #2.
The demise of fossil fuels, according to Blanco, is the second big BESS disruption. He basically claims that BESS batteries may replace the global oil economy as early as 2030, causing a $100 trillion collapse, according to Citigroup.
It will precipitate a $100 trillion collapse, according to investment bank Citigroup.
The $100 trillion number he cites, according to a 2015 CNBC report, refers to the value of global fossil fuel holdings. And, according to Citigroup, they are in jeopardy if we are to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius since oil may never be utilized.
In other words, he believes BESS has the potential to replace world oil use.
B.E.S.S. Disruption #3: A $140 Trillion Global Financial System Restructuring
Hedge funds will “turn their focus to clean technology like BESS batteries,” according to Blanco, precisely as people are transitioning away from fossil fuels.
In addition, he claims that “UBS predicts a huge tidal surge of capital pouring into clean tech like BESS batteries over the next years” worth $140 trillion.
Blanco, it turns out, didn’t come up with that figure out of thin air, either.
According to an article on the UBS Investment Bank website, “decarbonizing energy supplies by 2050” would need approximately $140 trillion.
And, according to Blanco, there will be a total of $240 trillion “available for grabs.”
And when $140 trillion in money is poured into renewable technology…
Along with the $100 trillion fossil fuel industry disruption…
You have a staggering $240 trillion to play with.
Making BESS perhaps the greatest financial success story of all time…
Aside from the technology itself, increasing demand, decreasing battery prices, and money pouring into the area, he claims that Federal Order #2222 is one of the major drivers for his forecast. So, in the following part, we’ll go further into what this is all about.
What is the purpose of Federal Order #2222?
A “landmark decision” known as “Federal Order #2222” would “pave the way for BESS to generate over 380 gigawatts of electricity in the next four years,” according to Ray Blanco.
It “almost ensures national acceptance of this new disruptive technology,” he adds.
What is the purpose of Federal Order #2222?
I think he’s talking to FERC Order No. 2222, which aims to “usher in the electric grid of the future and foster electric market competitiveness.”
The order does this by “removing the obstacles prohibiting distributed energy resources (DERs) from competing on a fair playing field,” according to the FERC Fact Sheet I just linked to.
What are distributed energy resources (DERs) and how do they work?
According to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC.gov),
DERs (distributed energy resources) are small-scale power production or storage systems (usually ranging from 1 kW to 10,000 kW) that may supplement or replace the conventional electric power grid.
What exactly is the purpose of Order No. 2222?
According to the FERC website, Order No. 2222 will help customers save money by improving grid flexibility and resilience, as well as increasing innovation in the electric power sector.
While writing about Eric Wade’s “Freedom Fuel” lecture, which was all about “virtual power plants,” I recall learning about a similar concept.
And, as far as I can tell, DERs and virtual power plants are built on the same principle. It ultimately comes down to reducing dependence on big, centralized power plants and establishing a more decentralized power system—one in which homes may more or less “swap” energy.
For example, if you have extra solar power that you don’t use, you may sell it to others on the same grid and purchase energy as needed.
It’s really nice, and I like the idea overall. I also discovered a video on Youtube that explains how it works quite well (below). Although it was created by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, the basic idea is universal.
Ray Blanco’s BESS Stock Picks: What Are They?
As part of his BESS thesis, Ray Blanco is interested in four stocks.
The first is a business that he freely discloses. The other three stocks are detailed in a report available exclusively to members of his advice service, Technology Profits Confidential. Although, based on the hints he gives throughout the presentation, I believe I know what the second one is.
Let’s take a closer look at each of his choices in any case.
Stock # 1 of BESS (AES Corp)
Fluence is the “#1 firm for the 122X BESS surge,” according to Ray Blanco.
Fluence’s goal, according to its website, is to “build a more sustainable future by changing the way we power our planet.” They call themselves a “world leader in energy storage and digital applications for renewables and storage,” according to their website.
However, as Blanco points out, Fluence is still a private business, so you can’t invest in it. As a result, he promotes AES Corp (NYSE: AES), which owns Fluence with Siemens.
Blanco also seems to imply that if AES Corp’s forthcoming IPO is successful, investors would get shares in Fluence.
Here’s how he expresses himself:
So, if Fluence goes public, what happens next?
You may be rewarded handsomely for your patience…
With Fluence shares…
(The world’s number one BESS business)…
Almost for nothing.
However, the specifics of this remain unknown. I wasn’t able to clarify whether purchasing AES Corp stock would entitle an AES shareholder to Fluence stock in the future.
Stock # 2 of BESS (Eos Energy Enterprises)
This stock, as well as the following two, are not mentioned in the presentation. Blanco does, however, give some hints as to what business it could be, and I believe I’ve found it out.
This business, according to Blanco, is a “superstar” BESS company that will “draw the lion’s share of Wall Street and the broader investing public’s attention.”
Here are a few of the key points he makes throughout his presentation:
This business is only.002 percent the size of Tesla in terms of workers…
They’re out-installing Tesla’s BESS projects by more than 165 percent in the US’s biggest renewable energy market (almost 80 percent market share)…
They already have a backlog of 10-to-20-year contracts with a portfolio of Fortune 500 businesses, practically ensuring long-term profitability, and…
Credit Suisse, a Swiss investment bank, just started covering this business and gave it a strong “buy” recommendation…
It is covered by 24 epatents…
That explains why, since its inception in October, this stock has risen by more than 400%…
Eos Energy Enterprises, Inc. is my guess based on these clues (EOSE).
Although not everything on this one was an exact match, I’m fairly sure that’s the business he’s teasing since it fits up with the most of what he says.
Consider the following scenario:
- EOS is a battery energy storage business with a goal to “accelerate the transition to sustainable energy with positively brilliant solutions that change how the world stores power,” according to the company’s website.
- According to the company’s LinkedIn page, they employ 142 people, and according to my study, Tesla will employ 70,757 people by 2020. So, in terms of staff count, EOS is approximately 0.002 percent the size of Tesla.
- According to their most recent investor presentation, they do indeed have a significant order backlog.
- I’m not sure whether they have precisely 24 patents, but according to the patents.justia.com website, they certainly have a lot of patents and patent applications.
- They went public in October or November of 2020, and the stock price rose from about $10 to $30 before falling to around $12 at the time of writing. If my assumption is accurate, I’m not sure how he achieved 400 percent from $10 to $30, which is a 200 percent increase. Maybe the price rose up in the middle of the day, or he’s referring to a pre-IPO pricing. I’m not certain. The chronology, however, is correct.
Overall, it seems like EOS is a good match. However, there were certain specifics of Blanco’s assertions that I couldn’t confirm.
I’m not convinced about the 400 percent rise he claims, and I couldn’t find any reference of Credit Suisse giving it a “buy” rating. It’s also unclear if the business is “out-installing Tesla’s BESS projects by over 165 percent.”
That’s my best estimate in any case.
Read his article titled “The Perfect BESS Investment: 10X Your Cash On Tesla’s Biggest Competitor” to find out for sure what business he’s teasing and get all the facts.
And joining Technology Profits Confidential is the only way to get that report. I’ll go into more detail about this later, but for now, let’s look at his next two choices.
Stock #3 of BESS
Blanco didn’t reveal anything about this or the next business. So I’ll just give you a quick rundown of what’s going on.
In summary, Blanco’s third choice is a “unknown metal” that “has a few benefits above lithium-ion,” according to him. He further claims that one firm utilizes this metal to make BESS batteries and that they have agreements in place in the United States.
In a paper titled “Lithium’s Replacement: How To Profit From The 122X Battery Storage Disruption,” he goes over all the facts.
Stock #4 of BESS
In a paper titled “The #1 Stock for the Biggest Infrastructure Bill in US History,” Blanco details his fourth suggestion. He thinks that President Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan would directly help this “under-the-radar business.”
And, like with the last two selections, if you want all the specifics, you’ll need to subscribe to Technology Profits Confidential.
What Is Technology Profits Confidential, and What Does It Mean?
Ray Blanco edits Technology Profits Confidential, a stock advice issued by St. Paul Research. The service focuses on two major sectors: technology and biotechnology.
The aim, according to the St. Paul Research website, is to “assist subscribers in determining the best moment to invest in some of technology’s most promising businesses and concepts.”
The monthly newsletters are the most important part of the service. Ray Blanco discusses his newest research and suggestions with subscribers in this section.
However, you also have access to tools such as the model portfolio, which contains all of the most recent recommendations, as well as updates on the positions within the portfolio and special reports.
The membership cost is lowered to $49 for 12 months access if you join via the presentation, and you receive access to the following three reports (the ones stated earlier):
- The Best BESS Investment: 10X Your Money On Tesla’s Main Rival
- How To Profit From The 122X Battery Storage Disruption Lithium’s Replacement
- The Number One Stock for America’s Biggest Infrastructure Bill in History
According to what I can tell, it too has a three-month return policy.
Ray Blanco: Who Is He?
Ray Blanco is the Chief Technology Editor of St. Paul Research and the editor of Technology Profits Confidential.
According to Blanco, his work is followed by over 80,000 individuals from all over the globe. He also mentions a number of suggestions that have yielded triple-digit returns over time.
He also claims that the average return on all of his closed recommendations in 2021 was 70% per position in 17 months, which is remarkable.
And he claims that his success is due to “insider contacts.” Blanco, for example, claims to have worked for “one of the most prominent money management companies in the nation” at one time in his career, which he claims helped him make some valuable contacts in the IT sector.
What is the purpose of St. Paul Research?
St. Paul Research is a financial publishing firm that I believe is owned by The Agora, one of the world’s biggest publishing houses.
Blanco edited the Technology Profits Confidential at Seven Figure Publishing before joining St. Paul Research. So I’m not sure what occurred there, but Agora might have bought the business.
In any event, he also operates Breakthrough Technology Alert, FDA Profit Alert, and Technology Profits Daily, among other businesses.
Ray Blanco’s BESS forecast is all about putting money into what might be the renewable energy of the future. Battery Energy Storage Systems, to be precise (BESS).
BESS is a “game-changing invention” that combines massive energy storage batteries with artificial intelligence and machine learning, according to him. He describes BESS as a “computerized network of smart batteries that can “think” for themselves,” combining these technologies.
According to a Bloomberg estimate, battery storage would “skyrocket 122X by 2040,” which translates to a market growth rate of 12,100%.
That doesn’t imply you’ll earn a 122X return on your BESS investment. However, Bloomberg seems to have predicted this for the development of stationary energy storage. In any case, it seems that this industry as a whole has a lot of room for expansion.
In order to benefit from Blanco’s advice, you’ll need to read the reports he’s put together, which you can obtain by joining Technology Profits Confidential.
Is it really worth it?
Profits from Technology Confidential is a trustworthy business that offers a money-back guarantee. Blanco’s general BESS theory is also intriguing to me. So it may be worthwhile to join to see what businesses he recommends and to learn more about why he recommends them.
However, I would not join expecting to get wealthy overnight. Because there are no assurances you’ll earn money in “BESS” in the future years, even if there are some excellent possibilities.
Investing, of course, comes with its own set of dangers. As a result, before making any choices, you should always do your own research.
Anyway, I hope you found this article useful, and thank you for taking the time to read it.
