Ecological safe storage: The salt battery

Storing energy with table salt! Dreams of the future? Far from it. This technology, which has been tried and tested for several decades, has long been available and deliverable! The Swiss company innovenergy® has been supplying households, commercial enterprises and industry with its salt battery storage systems for many years. They are THE experts in this field. The advantages: Salt batteries are ecological, sustainable, safe and extremely durable.

An invention that changed the course of time

It is no longer possible to imagine life without it. Almost no device works without it. Whether in a cordless screwdriver, to start a vehicle, in a mobile phone, in a torch or as an energy store for solar cells, the battery has become a part of our lives. And it is becoming more and more important at a time when energy consumption is constantly rising and new sources of energy have to be found. But let's look back at the beginnings: who were the heroes of today's progress back then?

Why salt batteries are so safe

Fire reports involving lithium-ion batteries are becoming increasingly frequent. Manufacturers are withdrawing products or discontinuing some areas of battery production. Understandably, the demand for alternative battery technologies is increasing.

Salt batteries don't burn!

Headlines about burning batteries make the rounds again and again. From smartphones in your pocket to drive batteries in e-vehicles to home storage in the basement, the topic of fire hazards and fire safety is widely discussed. It is undisputed that lithium-ion batteries are fire accelerants. At the end of the following article, you will find out how this works in detail, what needs to be done and what experts think about it. And, to say it in advance: All these fire horror stories do NOT apply to salt batteries. These are absolutely safe!

Salt battery hibernation: More CO2-free electricity in the cold season

Although nature only provides us with a fraction of renewable energies, energy consumption really takes off in the cold season. And with it, CO2 emissions from oil, gas and coal also increase. However, owners of a salt battery storage system with a photovoltaic system can help to reduce winter CO2 emissions.

Storing costs electricity: The issue of conversion losses

Renewable energy systems, such as your photovoltaic system, produce direct current (DC). The storage battery in your basement also needs direct current. But the electricity grid in your house or flat uses alternating current (AC) – even the public grid. And everywhere there are converters or inverters that bring voltages and current to the same level.
