Albufera Energy Storage
We have a team with large experience in technologies within the energy storage field, including: electrochemistry, materials for the development of batteries, energy storage applications and business and R&D projects (both at national and European level). Accordingly, the Albufera Energy Storage main strategy is the development of a new battery technology based on Aluminium, with several patents in Europe and USA, for its commercialization in the following fields:
- The integration of renewable generation sources in the transmission and distribution grids of electricity.
- The distributed generation of electricity, that is to say, starting from multiple sources delocalized in the European energy map.
- Active Power Demand where the user will have generation resources available, in addition to the consumption, and sufficient information for its management.
- Clean transport on our environment with more efficient vehicles (hybrid and electric). Including the Advising, Consulting, Engineering, Training and dissemination.
Our biggest opportunity is the current sociocultural change toward energy transition and sustainable environment in markets. Albufera ES plans to manufacture in the mid-term high-power Al-anode batteries for SLI (starting, lighting and ignition) engine cars. Currently, these batteries are manufactured with Pb-acid technology. It goes without saying that Pb is toxic and Pb-acid batteries may suffer from sudden death.
Our proposal, using Al instead of Pb is environmentally sustainable, recyclable, without corrosion and with a competitive price. In the long term, Albufera ES plans to manufacture Al batteries for electric cars. As Business Minister Richard Harrington said, “With 200,000 electric vehicles set to be on UK roads by the end of 2018 and worldwide sales growing by 45 per cent in 2016, investment in car batteries is a massive opportunity for Britain and one that is estimated to be worth £5 billion in the UK and £50 billion in Europe by 2025”.
The sustainable impact our batteries will create in the market is demonstrated because we plan to break into the car market with a disruptive and sustainable product, adding value to the current British market.
