Challenge

Electric power systems are rapidly shifting from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. Shifting the entire electrical grid power system to renewables such as hydro, wind, and solar is a complex task. Renewable energy have unpredictable energy generation profiles, thus, efficient energy storage systems are needed to handle the load fluctuations.

Within the energy storage market, batteries are the fastest-growing technology because of their modularity and scalability. Today’s market is dominated by two technologies: lithium and lead-acid batteries. These alternatives are neither safe nor reasonably priced.

Our solution

Our solution is to deliver sustainable zinc-ion battery technologies for stationary energy storage solutions. Our technology consists of non-toxic, easy-access and inexpensive materials that have an existing sustainable infrastructure for production and recycling. Our technology is based on chemistry similar to the well-known primary alkaline battery, namely zinc and manganese dioxide.

These batteries are ubiquitous in the market today because of their low cost and high energy density — but they are only capable of delivering their stored energy once. Our team has made major breakthroughs in making these low-cost batteries rechargeable.

We aim to offer our product to homeowners, grid system operators, energy distributors, and integrators — all those who focus on implementing renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power that require safe, sustainable and affordable batteries for energy storage.
