Society is shifting towards a renewable energy mix, powered by the sun and the wind. This shift means we have to bridge the hours between when energy is available and when we actually need it. In meeting this challenge, energy storage takes a front and center role.
Exergy is developing a new battery technology to meet this challenge. It will offer high value to homeowners and communities in helping them to make the most of their renewable generation.
The battery technology that Exergy is developing is specifically intended for stationary applications (as opposed to mobile ones). A typical application would be to firm your rooftop solar photovoltaic generation and shift excess energy a couple of hours to when you actually need it. This decreases your dependency on the grid and drastically improves self-consumption of generated energy.
Being a battery technology, it comes with the usual benefits of battery storage, like instant availability and independence of siting and environmental conditions. Here are some highlights:
Low cost Our battery technology leverages some of the world’s most abundant materials. These can be locally sourced and let us pursue the low costs that are needed to make energy storage not just a responsible choice for consumers, but also an economically sound one.
Safe and reliable A future founded on sustainable energy should not come at the expense of personal safety. Therefore safety has been a part of our design and engineering processes from the very start, so that the system is perfectly suitable even for residential applications.
Small footprint Built from environmentally benign materials that can be locally sourced, the storage devices are designed to be near-completely recyclable and have absolutely zero emissions.
Efficient Our storage technology is designed with a round-trip efficiency target approaching 90%, so that as little energy as possible is lost during storage cycles.
Modular Modularity means the system can support single homes as well as entire communities, and that capacity can be upgraded when it is required. In other words, the available storage capacity can be easily and seamlessly adapted to changing needs.
Durable Based on established technologies with decade-plus lifetimes even under daily use, our battery technology is built to last.
