Tapping into a $40B Market Opportunity Through Innovative Licensing
Gridtential provides its technology to global lead battery manufacturers for an accelerated pathway towards continued innovation to navigate new market demand, enabling the $40B industry to compete against new and emerging technology threats without gigascale capital investments.
1/3 the cost of competitors, Silicon Joule technology enables low current, high voltage batteries to increase efficiency in many applications, making it a compelling choice for many storage applications including distributed grid storage, hybrid automotive, and personal mobility.
While the energy sector has shown excitement around a gigafactory for battery storage, Gridtential is thinking bigger. Today’s lead industry already has a 600GW hour capacity that is 50x the size of a single gigafactory.
Battery Pioneers Embrace Silicon Joule
To date, Gridtential has secured a number of major commercial manufacturing partners, built and tested hundreds of batteries as part of the company’s Alpha Program, and issued myriad patents and provisional patents worldwide. Its Alpha program has enabled battery companies to test and see firsthand the real-world benefits of Silicon Joule battery technology.
The company's Intellectual Property portfolio covers broad usage of silicon as a bipolar battery plate substrate, which is applicable to multiple battery chemistries, and this expertise is central to Gridtential's licensing model, and mission to produce cost-competitive lead batteries at scale. Gridtential is looking forward to expanding its licensing program and working with the next wave of partners. Current licensing partners represent a significant portion of the market and some include:
East Penn Manufacturing, a private company and the world's largest single-site, lead-acid battery facility.
Crown Battery Manufacturing, a leader in deep-cycle applications
Leoch International, the largest lead acid battery exporter in China
Hammond Group, a leading pioneer in hybrid automotive battery industry and a trusted chemical supplier
With combined annual revenues reaching multiple billions of dollars, this innovative group of battery industry manufacturers has been working jointly with Gridtential to validate the potential of Silicon Joule batteries. In that time, Gridtential has eclipsed its performance targets and results show an overall 2-5x cycle life improvement and demonstrated, scalable assembly method that neutralizes the skepticism around lead battery technology.
Silicon Suppliers Rethink Silicon
While silicon has been used in electronic applications for decades, its potential as a fundamental lynchpin for the new renewable energy economy has not yet been fully realized. In response, Gridtential has designed a proprietary battery architecture that utilizes the best attributes of silicon to address a wide variety of new market applications, ranging from hybrid automotive technology to grid storage systems.
