NEW YORK BUSINESS WIRE: NantEnergy announced a breakthrough in its mission to develop a scalable air-breathing zinc rechargeable battery at a manufacturing cost below $100 kWh. This rechargeable air-breathing battery cell uses just zinc and air. Energy production is monitored in real time and has been successfully deployed to over 3,000 systems supporting entire villages and remote cell tower sites. Stacks of patents cover this breakthrough energy storage technology which represents an important alternative to lithium-ion batteries.
NantEnergy announced at the One Planet Summit they broke the manufacturing cost barrier of $100 per kilowatt hour for their rechargeable air-breathing zinc battery technology. Manufacturing at scale starts in 2019, providing a competitive source of energy that makes carbon-free energy both affordable and accessible.
