Zinc Air Batteries for Grids

0

Eos Energy is on a mission to develop a low-cost, high-energy rechargeable zinc-air battery for utility and electric vehicles. Zinc air technology in general has been recognized as an environmentally safe approach with the benefit of high energy densities. What has held the technology back has been low efficiency and short life cycles. Though cheaper, though lighter, than lithium ion batteries, zinc air batteries have run down much more quickly, unsuitable for application on a grid level. The batteries have so far been largely limited to the small button cells used for hearing aids. Eos Energy says it resolved the shortcomings through its advances in electrolyte chemistry and cell design. Its proprietary technology involves the battery architecture, electrolyte composition and management and manufacturing process. Eos zinc air technology has been under development by Eos since 2004.
