Power from the grid or renewable source is used to generate zinc particles in the Zinc Regenerator. Oxygen is released to the atmosphere as a by-product.
The zinc particles are flowed to the Storage Tank and maintained in potassium hydroxide (KOH) electrolyte until required.
Whenever power is needed, the zinc particles are delivered to the Power Stack, recombining them with oxygen to generate electricity. The zinc oxide (ZnO) by-product is returned to the storage tank for later regeneration.
Zero capacity fade over extensive lifetime.
Full discharge cycles. Same performance.
Non-flammable and non-toxic.
Longer duration requirements, lower cost per kWh.
Energy capacity easily extended by adding larger fuel tank.
Stable supply chains for mass manufacturing.
