Enerpoly awarded development grant by Swedish Energy Agency

€380K funds battery development and demonstration with Polarium, Uppsala University and KTH.

  • Enerpoly receives €380K in grant funding from Swedish Energy Agency.
  • This funds technical development and demonstration with energy storage integrator, Polarium, and two Swedish universities.
  • The developed zinc-ion batteries will fit the growing stationary energy storage market.

Stockholm, Sweden, 1 March 2021 – Enerpoly has received €380K (approximately 3.8 MSEK) in grant support from the Swedish Energy Agency. The project with a total €520K budget funds collaborative technical development with Uppsala University, and KTH Royal Institute of Technology. It also involves demonstration of the battery technology with Polarium, a Swedish energy storage provider.

“We are thrilled to initiate this project funded by the Swedish Energy Agency together with Polarium, KTH and Uppsala University. The project group consists of experts from academia and the industry to stimulate continuous development of rechargeable zinc-ion batteries. This cooperation will pave the way for new innovations and add great value to demonstrate cost-efficient, safe and sustainable energy storage solutions.” - Dr. Mylad Chamoun, Co-Founder and CTO of Enerpoly.

Renewable power generation is expected to dominate the electricity grid by 2030. Stationary energy storage must increase at least 17-times to support the performance, stability, and reliability of a grid powered by renewables. The primary barrier to 100% sustainable energy is the high costs of energy storage. Enerpoly has developed an affordable, safe, rechargeable zinc-ion battery technology made of available and inexpensive materials with a well-established recycling infrastructure. Enerpoly’s cost-efficient energy storage solution can meet the 2030 global cost targets today by saving on cell component costs and manufacturing processes, while addressing critical aspects regarding safety, environmental footprint, and scalability.

This project will take advantage of accumulated expertise on producing and scaling up zinc-ion battery technology within the project group and make the zinc-ion technology ready for commercialization. The aim is to stimulate research and development of the rechargeable zinc-ion battery technology, and strengthen Sweden’s competitiveness in battery technologies through expertise, innovation and systems thinking.
