New Patent Builds On Existing Patents to Provide Overarching Intellectual Property Protection for Alevo Battery Technology
Alevo SA, a leading Energy Storage Provider, today announced that its Alevo Research AG subsidiary has been granted a key US patent relating to the cell construction of its Alevo Battery Technology. The patent, US 9,263,745 B2, includes a comprehensive description of Alevo’s cell construction including the thick-electrode technology and complements patents US 9,209, 458 B2 and US 9,023,538 B2, both granted in 2015.
Taken in combination, these three patents not only provide a high level of protection but also underscore the differences between the Alevo technology and other rechargeable lithium battery systems. The most recent inventions include breakthrough advances which have made it possible to build rechargeable cells showing high robustness and extraordinary cycle life, goals which earlier technologies are unable to meet.
“The Alevo Battery Technology has many unique qualities especially in terms of longevity and the number of cycles our batteries can accomplish,” explains Per Dybwad, CEO of Alevo SA. “The cell patents we have been granted are very comprehensive and include a very full description of the cell design. This builds on the patent protection already granted to us for our non-flammable, inorganic and high conductivity electrolyte. Taken together the patents for our cell design and electrolyte means that we now have an overarching protection across all components of the entire cell.”
Alevo, a leading provider of energy storage is redefining energy as a developer, manufacturer and provider of grid-scale energy storage solutions featuring GridBank™ & Alevo Analytics. GridBank Lithium-Ion batteries feature a proprietary inorganic electrolyte (Alevolyte™), which is non-flammable and offers extreme long life and stability. Alevo’s vertically engineered turnkey energy storage solution can be placed anywhere on the electricity supply chain, to reduce energy waste, lower greenhouse gases and other emissions, create efficiencies and lower costs. Founded in 2009, Alevo is headquartered in Switzerland with GridBank manufacturing in the US.

250-kilowatts of Alevo Battery Technology will become part of the Duke Energy Microgrid Research Center in Mount Holly, North Carolina. Duke Energy established a testing center at their Mount Holly Training facility a few years ago to explore new microgrid technologies and take an in-depth look at how new microgrid technology can enhance the grid.

In late 2014, a virtually unknown company called Alevo announced it was entering the energy storage market with a new inorganic, sulfur-based lithium ion battery technology that it had acquired from the bankrupt German company fortu PowerCell. Alevo entered the U.S. with a big splash, investing over $68 million in the 3.5 million-square-foot former Philip Morris […]
