Gelion wins Industrial Energy Enlightenmentz Award
This week, at the European Industry & Energy Summit (EIES) in Amsterdam, Gelion’s reinvented Zinc Bromide battery won the prestigious Industrial Energy Enlightenmentz Award 2019.
According to the organisers of the EIES:
The pitch of Gelion’s CEO Rob Fitzpatrick convinced the jury of the election as well as the audience of the European Industry & Energy Summit that the storage solution has the most impact on the energy transition.
Gelion has transformed the Zinc Bromide redox flow-battery technology into a more conventional stationary architecture. Instead of a pumped battery system with tanks and moving parts, the chemistry can be a self-contained block, like a Lead acid or Alkaline cell. This results in a consumer-friendly package that is much more economical, scalable and maintenance friendly, whilst retaining all the benefits of the Zinc Bromide technology.
The Australian reports on Gelion plans to meet soaring energy sector demand.
Gelion’s zinc-bromide battery will undergo commercial tests at Acciona Energía’s 1.2MW Montes del Cierzo testing field.
