Gelion Claims Zinc-Bromine Gel Batteries Will Replace Lithium-Ion

The title of this post, is the same as that as this article on RideApart.

These are the first two paragraphs.

Battery technologies are evolving at a rapid pace—and for good reasons. With the automotive world moving toward electrification, companies need to find solutions for producing electric vehicles on a massive scale. While lithium-ion battery technology rules the roost today, that isn’t stopping firms from developing the next big leap forward.

From solid-state power units to structural batteries to sci-fi-worthy quantum batteries, there’s no shortage of ideas and concepts. However, the Australian company Gelion Technologies believes it found a more affordable and durable approach with its zinc-bromine gel battery. Unlike lithium-ion units, the material found in Gelion’s design isn’t rare, expensive, or potentially flammable.

It’s yet another development coming out of Australia.

Gelion To Trial Battery At Spanish Solar Plant

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on renews.biz.

This is the first two paragraphs.

Gelion has signed a test and supply contract with European renewables supplier Acciona Energia to trial its zinc-bromide battery technology at a solar plant in Spain.

Acciona Energia’s Montes del Cierzo photovoltaic solar plant in Navarra, northern Spain, will trial the energy storage system, following a competitive process launched in September 2020.

As Gelion’s Chief Executive indicates, this must be a show of confidence in their technology.

There is a full press release on the Gelion web site.

I just wonder, if Gelion could be a technology to be successful.

Solidity Or Speculation, It’s Your Choice

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Investors Chronicle.

This is the introductory paragraph.

Solid-state batteries are made using a technology that promises massive improvements in lithium-ion battery efficiency and capacity, so a breakthrough could see ranges in electric vehicles (EVs) extended well beyond the few hundred miles that the most advanced models can currently achieve.

It then lists four companies, that are possible investments; Gelion Technologies, Ilika, Superdielectrics and Solid State.

I am sure the technology will break through, but finding the winner will be difficult.
