The Solex Battery project is a project that aims at doing research to find the best cheap and sustainable energy storage solutions for the next generation.
Method and Design
- The project focuses on both improving established Zinc based batteries and improving/promoting new high density Sodium, Potassium, Aluminum, and Magnesium batteries.
- Looking at new solvents/electrolytes to circumvent problems
- New stabilization and oxygen chemistries explored
- Cycle Count, Power, Capacity, and life will be treated as well as how discharge/recharge amount affects the above outcomes. Durability and safety will also be tested. The cost normalized for the above parameters, will determine the success for the above. The ideas will eventually be pitched to future investors and feedback will determine future success.
Progress and Future Goals
We are currently developing prototypes for the batteries based on cutting edge patents and publications. Capacity and power output have been rising steadily. Costs much less than market costs.
Prototypes will be verified to be cheaper than current batteries for a give power output, cycle life, durability and capacity. The pilot for the energy system will be an auxiliary power source for a house. It should store enough energy for a family household for a surplus of one night of energy (15kWh). Cycle count and life, power ratings, durability, capacity etc. will be tested
Funding is planning to be via venture capitalist, industry, and social fundraising in connection with investors and other connections, we hope to sell to retail. Theoretically, once large profits are mode we could scale up to larger factories for hopefully a global impact. The materials used for the battery will be fully recyclable and abundant allowing for full sustainability.
