Liquid battery startup Ambri ready to embark on first utility demonstration project with Xcel Energy

Emma Penrod of Utility Dive reports that Ambri is partnering with Xcel Energy.

The C3 Take
  • Ambri, a startup that was founded at MIT, develops antimony-based batteries.
  • These batteries do not require cooling or access to rare earth metals and last longer than their lithium-ion counterparts.
  • Utility provider Xcel Energy has partnered with Ambri to use its liquid battery at a solar demonstration project in Aurora, Colorado.
  • If successful, this project could pave the way for Ambri’s technology to be used at a larger scale.

“Ambri is aiming to pilot its system with five additional partners while simultaneously developing standardized 1 MWh containerized battery units, which the company hopes to begin shipping to customers by 2025, Briggs said.”
