Eos Energy Enterprises on Monday announced its new “Eos Ingenuity Lab,” a site focused on expanding the company’s research & development capacity as it designs future generations of its Znyth aqueous battery and forges a path toward rapid manufacturing and deployment of its energy storage systems.
Located at Eos’ corporate headquarters in Edison, the lab provides the space and resources to continue evolving Eos’ flexible zinc battery technology as part of the company’s mission to accelerate the national shift to clean energy.
Eos has pledged to add as many as 25 jobs and foster partnerships with educational institutions and local leaders to support economic growth and clean energy innovation within the community.
“The launch of the Ingenuity Lab underscores our commitment to building the energy storage solutions of the future,” Joe Mastrangelo, CEO of Eos, stated. “We have always prioritized innovation and continuous improvement as part of our company identity, but to have a designated site where this can be fostered will help accelerate adoption of energy storage and its critical role in the renewable energy transition.”
U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone Jr. (D-6th Dist.) was on hand for the unveiling of the Eos Ingenuity Lab. This is the second time the congressman has visited Eos’ Edison facility. Pallone hosted Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm for a tour of the company in July 2021.
As part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that Pallone helped pass, the U.S. Department of Energy announced earlier this year new programs to invest $3 billion to strengthen U.S. supply chains for advanced batteries.
“New Jersey is confronting the climate crisis with new, cutting-edge battery technology that is creating clean energy jobs right here at home,” Pallone stated. “I am immensely proud that Eos calls Edison home and is leading the way on energy storage technology that will help us accelerate the transition to clean energy. These innovations will ensure both our economy and our energy infrastructure are ready to meet the challenges of the future.”
A focus of the lab will be to refine and optimize Eos’ current technology while creating prototypes for future designs that can be tested under a variety of conditions. The current model has a wide operability range, from 3- to 12-hour discharge durations. Development and testing of new modular containers to transport and house the batteries as well as advanced manufacturing processes will also be studied.
