The Future of Energy Storage: Nickel-Zinc Batteries
Over 100 years ago, Thomas Edison was granted a patent for a nickel-zinc (NiZn) battery. Unfortunately, numerous technical problems prohibited the commercial success of utilizing this type of technology. But the landscape started to change around 2000, when nickel-zinc battery technology again became a focus of intensive research due to certain advantages over other battery types. Today, NiZn offers big advantages in energy and power density, maintenance cost, environmental safety, and recyclability.
Nickel-Zinc batteries have direct uses in a wide range of applications including heavy trucking, remote telecommunication, data centers, and renewable energy. This technology is uniquely positioned to disrupt the $50+ billion conventional lead-acid battery market and the rapidly growing $30 billion lithium market. To stay ahead of these trends in the market, investors need to better understand innovative battery technologies.
This Boundless webinar features ZincFive Founder and CEO Tim Hysell, zinc battery expert Ian Whyte, and Boundless Research Analyst Andreas van Giezen, who will present our Climate Impact Assessment of ZincFive. Don’t miss this fascinating discussion on why this type of zinc battery is on the rise.
