Long term clean energy storage is key to the adoption of renewable energy. Along with providing this long term, efficient, large scale solution for renewable energy storage, Agora Energy CO2 Redox flow battery contribute to solving other major environmental problems, by:
- Replacing carbon intensive metals like zinc, lithium & Vanadium used today in batteries by high density CO2 as active material
- Utilizing CO2 during charge and transforming it in the process of electricity production into valuable carbonates
During our 11 June event, Christina Gyenge, Ph.D., Agora Energy CEO, detailed the competitive advantages of their CO2 battery: “ it is high energy density (comparable to Lithium-ion batteries), 6 times more durable, and it operates at normal pressure and temperature conditions.” “The economic equation is impressive, for every ton of CO2 captured, we produce 1.3MWh of electricity, with a total profit of $700, when the valorization of byproducts is taken into account”
They are building a 5KW prototype and looking for more partners, so make sure to check out their website and contact them for collaboration opportunities in Japan.
Let’s continue building a better future together!
