Alevo Battery Technology brings the first non-flammable, non-combustible lithium-ion battery to the marketplace, bringing unprecedented attributes to the energy storage market. The driver behind this breakthrough technology is in Alevolyte, an inorganic electrolyte that is only available through Alevo.
Along with its non-flammable characteristics, Alevo’s Inorganic Lithium-Ion Battery has a very long predictable life. This is because its inorganic chemistry maintains constant power and low constant internal resistance throughout the life of the battery.
Battery technology has made a tremendous impact on our daily lives. In 1859, the Lead Acid battery was introduced as the first rechargeable battery. This same basic chemistry can still be found in our cars today. In 1910 commercial production of nickel-cadmium (NiCd) rechargeable batteries began. The next milestone was the Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery. With a higher energy density, no toxic metals, NiMH became widely used in mobile phones and portable electronics.
In 1991, we saw a huge breakthrough with the introduction of commercially available lithium-ion batteries. For the first time, there was a rechargeable battery that was small and lightweight and could be designed to fit into any space. This revolutionary battery was the catalyst to the small electronic consumer market. This battery came with one downside, the organic electrolyte used in the battery has a similar energy content to gasoline and carries the potential to catch fire or explode.
In 2016, Alevo introduced the first commercially available rechargeable inorganic lithium-ion battery. It is the first non-flammable lithium-ion battery. With its extremely long predictable life, it is the ideal battery for utility-scale energy storage.
