low-cost, ultra-safe battery energy storage
We are scaling up the next generation of energy storage: a novel battery technology based on abundant, low-cost materials, like rock salt, (recycled) aluminium and iron. It does away with the disadvantages of current battery technologies, as it is intrinsically safe and has a minimal environmental impact, without compromising on system energy density. The technology is easy to scale and fully recyclable and can be employed in large utility-scale systems as well as residential storage.
For single households as well as larger communities, battery energy storage substantially improves the self-consumption of generated renewable electricity from approximately 30% to 70%. Our compact battery helps shift generation from PV solar panels and wind turbines to when the demand is actually there, for example in the evening long after the sun has set. The technology allows for thousands of deep cycles.
Exergy’s battery technology can be employed in containerized solutions. Their intrinsic safety, high energy capacity, modularity and low cost make them an excellent fit for utility-scale and industry applications, for example, next to large wind- and solar energy parks.
Batteries can also be used in hot and harsh environments without the need for cooling; saving energy in the process.
The battery cells withstand harsh environmental conditions and have long cycle life, which makes them highly usable in remote locations, for example, to power telecom transmitter base stations, local mini-grids and other off-grid systems.
The high energy and excellent safety performance of our battery cells makes them a candidate for the electrification of transport over rivers and coastal waterways, including barges and passenger transport.
