The global transition from non-renewable to renewable energy needs efficient storage technologies to be successful. While wind, solar and other renewable energies are gaining more and more ground, their viability is hindered by a lack of sustainable methods to store the energy they create. For the world to renounce fossil energy sources for electricity production in the long term, electricity producers, grid operators and consumers need intermediate storage facilities that are both efficient and practical.
The lithium-ion battery is currently the industry gold-standard for this type of energy storage, but what if it could be better? That’s exactly the question that CEO of High Performance Battery, Dr. Günther Hambitzer, set out to answer. He and his team’s research culminated in the fifth generation of battery technology: the Solid State Battery. The Solid State Battery tackles virtually all of the issues hindering the sustainability, environmental impact and efficiency of the lithium-ion battery.
Conventional lithium-ion batteries age over time because a top layer forms on the battery through charging and discharging. This layer grows over time and with each use, even faster the more intensively the battery is used. The growth of the top layer consumes capacity inside the battery and increases its internal resistance, leading to a weaker battery performance.
Conversely, with High Performance Battery’s innovative battery technology, only a very thin top layer forms during a battery’s first charging and subsequent charges do not cause it to grow. With patented solid state electrolyte technology, batteries by High Performance Battery have virtually constant internal resistance and capacity throughout their service life, no matter how much the battery is used.
The result is the Solid State Battery: a battery that lasts over 100,000 charging cycles, compared to the 3,000 of a lithium-ion battery, in addition to having almost-constant capacity and performance, practically no explosion risk, fast chargeability and much more. The Solid State Battery also contains no cobalt, making it more environmentally-friendly and much cheaper to produce and use. High Performance Battery’s technology is patented in all major economic regions and backed by more than 30 years of basic research led by Dr. Günther Hambitzer.
The Solid State Battery has a vast array of applications including wind and solar energy storage, control energy for electricity grids, quarter solutions for energy self-sufficiency, home energy storage, data center power, charging infrastructure for electric vehicles and dozens more. The applications for the Solid State Battery are seemingly limitless as the list continues to grow.
Key features of the Solid State Battery:
- Non-flammable electrolyte
- Infinite service life
- High specific energy
- Deep dischargeable
- Near-constant capacity and performance
- Produced with standard raw materials
- Practically no explosion risk
- Competitive manufacturing costs
