Innolith, a leading Swiss energy technology company, has won the 2019 Rushlight Awards for its innovative new battery technology platform. The awards were presented at last night’s Rushlight Awards show at the Royal Society in London, where clean tech companies and universities from across Europe presented their innovations. Innolith was also the winner of the Rushlight Energy Efficiency Award for the innovation that best manages energy in such a way that less energy needs to be generated.
Innolith’s batteries use an inorganic electrolyte that delivers far greater durability, but also ensures a safer battery that is fundamentally non-flammable. This is in contrast to organic lithium-ion batteries that have limited usable lives and have caused multiple fires in consumer devices and grid applications. The low cost-per-cycle batteries will have multiple important applications for the future of energy including grid stabilisation, support for the integration of renewables and supporting the recharging of the rapidly growing fleets of electric vehicles.
