Gelion Technologies,and Battery Energy Power Solutions have joined forces to manufacture and distribute safe, affordable Gelion Endure, non-flow zinc-bromide (ZnBr2) battery storage solutions in Australia.

The partnership represents the next stage of commercialisation for Gelion and Battery Energy, committing to supplying Australian-designed and manufactured energy storage products to the local market.

Gelion was founded in 2015 by Professor Thomas Maschmeyer, awarded the Prime Minister’s Prize for Innovation 2020, as a spin-out from the University of Sydney.

Battery Energy has provided power solutions for more than 30 years to a wide range of industries.

Manufacturing Gelion’s stationary energy platform at its Fairfield site in Sydney, will provide local jobs in the 'green' industry and shorten supply chains for the Australian market.

The batteries will be deployed in production trials in 2022 ahead of anticipated commercial availability.

Gelion’s non-flow zinc-bromide battery is a recyclable alternative to lithium-ion, making it a reliable energy source for a range of applications.

It is suitable for irrigation, water purification and desalination systems, remote communities, mining facilities and agriculture. They are optimised for a wide temperature range making them suitable for Australia’s outdoor conditions.

Endure batteries can be completely discharged and recharged with no loss of function. The battery’s electrolytic gel is a fire retardant, making the batteries safe and robust.
