Pioneering zinc hybrid battery technology developed for the UK
Birmingham-based renewable energy company, Bryt Energy, has collaborated with Eos Energy Storage and Connected Energy to develop and roll out a pioneering and financially competitive battery technology in the UK. The EU’s first Zinc hybrid battery system will be tested under UK conditions before being targeted at universities for research purposes. It is expected that the first EU certified system will be provided to the UK Industrial and Commercial market next year.
The Eos system is revolutionary in the energy industry and has the potential to be the most competitive and low-cost battery in the market. It has a high energy to power ratio, enabling greater flexibility during peak load periods, and is long-lasting and safe. Its low hazard risk makes it particularly suitable for COMAH sites (Control of Major Accident Hazards) as well as the Industrial and Commercial market. It’s also ethically sourced and environmentally friendly; at the end of its life, parts can either be reused, recycled or safely disposed of.
As well as the safety and ethical benefits, customers can take advantage of the battery’s economic potential, which includes grid service income, peak shaving and capacity charge avoidance, all optimised by Bryt Energy using pioneering software and technology. Guaranteeing energy resilience, businesses can gain energy security, avoid grid capacity restrictions and make the most of their on-site generation. For the UK in general, the technology allows more renewable energy onto the grid, reducing energy prices and helping the move towards a low carbon future.
