Silicon Valley startup Zēlos Energy has joined the Zinc Battery Initiative (ZBI) organisation, which promotes the technologies and innovations behind sustainable, recyclable and energy-efficient rechargeable zinc batteries.
Formed in late 2020, ZBI’s 11 members produce zinc batteries for a variety of applications from powering submarines and electric vehicles to providing backup power for microgrids, homes, and data centers.
Zēlos Energy, which launched in 2019, makes cylindrical and prismatic batteries.
Dr. Josef Daniel-Ivad, manager of the Zinc Battery Initiative, said: “We are so pleased to welcome Zēlos Energy to our membership. We anticipate Zēlos batteries will make great inroads in stationary storage, military applications, and even daily household use.
“Zinc batteries will play an essential role in driving the transition to net zero emissions, thanks to zinc’s abundance, sustainability and high performance.”
ZBI’s other members include: ZincFive, Zinc8, Salient Energy, Urban Electric Power, e-Zinc, Redflow, Enzinc, Enerpoly, ZAF Energy Systems, AEsir Technologies, Inc., and Imprint Energy.
