Swiss battery technology company Innolith has announced two key appointments as part of its push into the North American and Chinese markets.
Former Younicos executive Stephen Wiley has been appointed VP for US business development. Wiley is also a former senior VP at BrightSource Energy, working on the development of a concentrated solar power facility in the US.
Meanwhile, Carrie Lin has been named Innolith’s chief representative for China as the company develops sales and licensing agreements in the country.
Prior to joining Innolith, Lin was an executive with General Electric’s Grid Solutions and is a former CEO at energy management firm Landis+Gyr.
Innolith was launched in late 2018 after acquiring the core technical assets of Alevo in Germany and Switzerland, which went into insolvency.
CEO Sergey Buchin (pictured) told BEST Battery Briefing last December that the company was on course to bring its inorganic “non-flammable electrolyte” to market within two years, to supercharge the performance of conventional lithium-ion batteries.
