Zinc battery manufacturer Eos Energy Storage has signed an agreement to provide over 1 GWh of energy storage projects at an estimated value of more than $250 million to developer Hecate Energy. Eos will design, manufacture, and deliver its zinc-based battery solutions to Hecate over the course of the next 24 months across Colorado, New Mexico and Texas. The projects are a mix of standalone battery storage and storage paired with solar PV for renewable energy capacity. Eos is one of a number of market participants looking to commercialize a novel battery technology centred around a zinc chemistry in competition or complement to lithium-ion and other energy storage, claiming it to be a low-cost, medium to long-duration energy storage with minimal degradation of battery cells. PTR finds it too early to comment as to whether the batteries will provide any true competition to Li-ion batteries.
