TerraScale picks Ambri liquid metal battery for data center.

by Nov 26, 2020

An agreement has been made to deploy energy storage systems using the novel chemistry batteries between manufacturer Ambri and TerraScale, a developer of sustainable infrastructure solutions for the energy and digital technology sectors. Ambri, a company co-founded by MIT materials chemistry professor and part-funded to get off the ground by Bill Gates, has designed a battery that uses a liquid calcium alloy anode, molten salt electrolyte and a cathode made of solid particles of antimony. The company claims this enables a low number of steps in the cell assembly process while the materials are low-cost. Ambri also integrates the batteries into a containerized energy storage system solution. The liquid metal battery technology developed will be used as a potential low-cost competitor for lithium-ion looks at a data centre under development near Reno, Nevada.
