$250,000 Grant For Zinc-Air Battery Project

Eos Energy Storage has announced a $250,000 grant from Consolidated Edison, which will be channelled towards deploying its zinc-air batteries on the New York City’s grid. Eos has five more smaller-scale battery tests on the way.

Eos claims to have developed zinc-air batteries that are about 75 percent efficient, with 10,000-cycle or 30-year lifespan, making it competitive with other types of batteries. The most competitive aspect of Eos’s zinc-air batteries are however, their low cost. At $160 per kWh for its 6-hour storage system, this is much lower than flow batteries’ $400-600 per kWh, or lithium-ion’s $800-1000 per kWh. Even the low of $500 per kWh that some Chinese lithium-ion manufacturers are targeting is not a match.

Ultracapacitor UPS (U-UPS) for voltage dips and micro-interruptions

Power interruptions are the most frequent power supply problems with wide-ranging consequences for industry. The causes of these interruptions include short-circuits in the distribution grid, lightning strikes, the connection and disconnection of power plants as well as volatile energy producers such as wind and solar. Because technologies and production processes are becoming increasingly complex, the…
