EnerVenue, the first company to bring metal-hydrogen batteries capable of more than 30 000 cycles to the clean energy revolution, has announced the launch of EnerVenue energy storage vessels (ESVs), the company’s second-generation energy storage product.
EnerVenue ESVs continue to expand the company’s pioneering use of metal-hydrogen energy storage technology as an advantageous solution compared to lithium-ion (Li-ion) and other alternatives. Based on decades of use with NASA and other aero-space applications, EnerVenue has significantly cost-reduced materials to bring – for the first time – unique battery durability, safety, and flexibility benefits to grid scale, commercial and industrial deployments. The new ESV solution delivers unprecedented flexibility in how customers can stack and install the vessels to build and scale their energy storage capacity.
The ultra-long-life EnerVenue ESVs enable unique applications and business models for developers, integrators, and owners. Customers can cycle ESVs up to three times per day without rest, and the batteries have an expected lifetime of 30 years/30 000 cycles. ESVs continue to deliver 86% capacity beyond 30,000 cycles, providing a second asset life that Li-ion batteries cannot match. The solution’s metal-hydrogen technology further differentiates from Li-ion by offering improved fire safety. ESVs have been tested and demonstrate no thermal runaway or propagation risk, and there is no need for costly, preventative fire suppression systems. EnerVenue ESVs also significantly reduce OPEX and CAPEX costs compared to Li-ion, delivering on expected return on investment by eliminating any need for expensive augmentations, excessive oversizing, or extensive maintenance during a project’s lifetime. With recyclable components, ESVs are also more sustainable and environmentally responsible than Li-ion.
EnerVenue ESVs offer a highly configurable and scalable product architecture that makes the products ideal building blocks for system integrators of all sizes and business models. ESVs similarly enable a more flexible breadth of deployment locations – and are built to thrive even in extreme temperatures and other environments where grid scale Li-ion batteries struggle. The product also features flexible charge/discharge rates and can discharge to 100% (deep discharges permanently damage Li-ion batteries), giving system owners the latitude to capitalise on a broader range of revenue stream opportunities.
“Our new ESVs deliver a meaningful upgrade to the customisation and ease with which customers and partners can plan and expand their utilisation of our transformative and proven battery technology,” said Majid Keshavarz, Chief Technology Of-ficer, EnerVenue. “As the applications using our technology have grown, we wanted to ensure we had a product that could match almost any use case. ESVs package EnerVenue’s incredible technology into a more flexible and efficient solution that we’re excited to bring to market.”
