MGX’s subsidiary MGX Renewables Inc. develops zinc-air flow batteries designed for high capacity, long duration use ranging from commercial and industrial to grid-scale applications.
Using low-cost zinc and air as fuel, this patented zinc-air fuel cell technology employs a fuel tank structure that is highly scalable. The technology allows for low-cost, mass storage of energy that can be deployed into a wide range of synergistic applications including:
The cost of energy storage for a typical zinc-air battery system
The number of operating life hours per subsystem of a typical 20 kW system
MGX Renewable's energy storage systems are designed to deliver backup power in the range of 5 to 100 kW over extended periods of time. With the advantage of rechargeable zinc-air fuel cell technology, the systems are configured to support a wide range of discharge power, recharge power and duty cycle requirements. An independent Battery Management System enables the system to be configured for any AC/DC, load/source environment.
