Eos among three firms to develop zinc hybrid battery technology for UK
Three energy companies are collaborating on a pioneering zinc hybrid battery technology that they are ultimately targeting at the UK’s industrial and commercial market.
The pilot will be tested under UK conditions before being targeted at universities for research purposes, with the first EU certified system expected to be provided to Britain’s commercial and industrial sector next year.
The battery system is also being developed to integrate with electric vehicle charging and demand side management solutions.
The trio of firms – UK-headquartered Bryt Energy and Connected Energy, and US-based Eos Energy Storage – say that their system is “revolutionary in the energy industry and has the potential to be the most competitive and low-cost battery in the market”.
