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.
