Nuvvon teams up with Rutgers on energy storage


Nuvvon, innovators in alternative solid-state battery materials, is partnering with Rutgers EcoComplex-Clean Energy Innovative Center and its WindIgnite Offshore Wind Supply Chain Accelerator Program to advance renewable energy storage and sustainable development. Through the partnership, Rutgers will focus on developing and commercializing Nuvvon’s solutions in energy storage that contribute to the development of a sustainable Offshore Wind (OSW) supply chain and address environmental challenges.

Nuvvon’s energy battery materials and batteries are ideally suited for energy storage applications due to cheaper cost per unit energy compared to current technology lithium-ion batteries. These batteries also can pack more energy into a given volume or weight. Unlike liquid electrolyte batteries, Nuvvon technology is fire resistant for safe use close to buildings, simplifying the supporting local grid network.

“Nuvvon is determined to be in the vanguard of this energy revolution in its home state of New Jersey, providing batteries and battery materials to support wind and solar energy generation,” said Jonathan Lex, Nuvvon Inc.’s chief operating officer. “We identify with Rutgers’ aims for energy justice with fair access for all to cheaper energy.”

“Energy storage is essential in efficient utilization of renewable energy,” said Serpil Guran, director of Rutgers EcoComplex. “The collaboration will help drive innovation in renewable energy storage where Nuvvon Inc. can play an essential role.”

The need to properly value the high performance of battery storage systems, including their accurate and fast frequency response, is one aspect of a broader need for wholesale electricity market reform in the face of rapidly evolving power systems.
