Holtec will also collaborate with Eos in sales and marketing of the aqueous zinc battery systems.
“Although we continue to invest in our nuclear business and believe in the future of our small modular reactor program for low carbon baseload energy, we recognize that renewables must also play a critical role in reducing carbon emissions going forward. A key limitation of renewables has been variability in production, which can be levelized with the DC battery system, helping drive a fundamental shift in the renewables market,” said Dr. Rick Springman, Holtec’s Vice President of International Projects.
The Znyth aqueous zinc battery technology has been tested over 15 million hours and two million test cycles, and Eos has already produced over 3,000 batteries for industrial, utilities and micro-grid applications across four continents.
