We make safe, sustainable, and affordable zinc-ion batteries to power the clean energy revolution.

Batteries are needed for renewable energy to work.

They store clean electricity when it’s abundant and deliver it when it’s needed.

But fighting climate change will require more lithium-ion batteries than the world can make.

The lithium-ion materials shortage is getting worse every year.
Costs are rising and disruptions in supply are becoming more severe.

Salient Energy supports a rapid transition to clean energy by providing a scalable alternative to lithium-ion.

We are building a secure, sustainable, and reliable supply chain.

Globally, zinc is over 100 times more abundant than lithium.

We use metals mined, processed and manufactured in North America.

Lithium, cobalt and nickel-free. Made in America and helping to reduce dependence on dangerous and high-risk supply chains.

Zinc-ion production emits two-thirds less greenhouse gasses than lithium-ion.

A step closer to a net zero world.

Introducing the zinc-ion battery

The same power, footprint, and service life as lithium-ion based systems.

(The only non-lithium battery that can accomplish this.)

Non-toxic, water-based design that eliminates fire risk.

The first battery where zinc ions react at both electrodes.

Global leaders in clean technology are recognizing Salient’s innovation.

California Energy Commission Awards Salient Energy US$1.5M grant.

Salient Energy CEO, Ryan Brown, speaks at the International Zinc Conference.

Zinc-ion batteries: 'Up to 50% cheaper than lithium-ion, with no raw-materials concerns.

Zinc-Ion Batteries are A Scalable Alternative to Lithium-Ion.

We are a team of scientists, engineers, and industry veterans working to build clean storage for clean energy.
