The performance of lithium ion at a fraction of the cost and risk
Alsym™ Energy has developed an innovative low-cost, high-performance rechargeable battery chemistry that’s free of lithium and cobalt, and ideal for applications such as stationary storage, maritime shipping, and electric vehicles.
By using readily available, inherently non-flammable and non-toxic materials, Alsym is working to deliver performance comparable with lithium ion at a much lower cost—something no other technology can do.
Markets We Serve
- Stationary & Grid Storage
Stationary & Grid Storage
Global clean energy and sustainability goals hinge on building the capacity to store electricity produced from renewable sources, as well as provide stability and consistency for power grids. The current standard, which involves amassing large numbers of lithium-ion cells in one location, is expensive and extremely hazardous.
Whether you need to store power from large solar arrays and wind farms, or manage larger datacenter and microgrid installations to take advantage of peak shaving, we’re working to develop high-performance, non-flammable batteries that provide comparable capacity with a fraction of the cost and risk.
Marine, Maritime & Off-Shore
There’s little tolerance for hazardous battery chemistries in maritime applications. Unlike lithium-ion batteries, Alsym batteries are made from materials that are inherently non-flammable, reducing the risks to human life and cargo and helping to lower insurance costs and cumulative liabilities.
Motorcyles, Scooters, & Two-Wheelers
The global electric motorcycle and scooter market is set to triple by 2030. Today, over sixty million are sold every year, and most run on fossil fuels. Battery electric models are in demand, but buyers are extremely cost-sensitive and concerned about battery fires. Lithium-ion batteries in two wheelers can spontaneously combust due to poor heat dissipation—a problem that will only get worse as the world warms.
Our low-cost, non-flammable batteries are poised to be an ideal solution for the two-wheeler market, maximizing performance and profit margins while greatly improving rider safety.
Even with recent advancements, the cost of lithium-ion batteries is roughly double what’s needed for EVs to reach cost parity with comparable internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. This means that EVs are largely confined to the premium and luxury end of the market. Low-cost, high-performance Alsym batteries will enable global adoption of battery-electric vehicles across consumer and commercial segments.
Life without lithium and cobalt
Our technology avoids many of the issues that surround lithium-based batteries and uses no lithium or cobalt. Alsym batteries are non-flammable and non-toxic by design, using readily available materials.
