ALIENA: Innovative Storage for Stationary Applications Based on Aluminum

Research project with reference: RTC-2015-4471-3, coordinated by the company ALBUFERA ENERGY STORAGE, corresponding to the call 2015, within the State Program of Research, Development and Innovation Oriented Challenges of the Society under the National Plan for Scientific Research and Technological Innovation 2013-2016 (Collaboration Challenges 2015).

The general objective of the ALIENA project is to improve and adapt the technology of electrochemical aluminum-air batteries for stationary energy storage applications in decentralized sources of electricity generation. ALIENA pursues a comprehensive approach that includes the development of new electroactive materials, electrolytes based on ionic liquids, organic compounds, new aluminum alloys, new carbonaceous and catalyst materials and new concepts of individual cells and batteries, finally resulting in technology lower cost, better performance, safety and reliability with respect to current energy storage solutions such as lead acid batteries.
