ZincGel batteries are non-flammable, durable, and cost-efficient, fostering the growth of both low-powered mobility and renewable energy globally

Offgrid Energy Labs, an IIT Kanpur-incubated startup, has unveiled its ZincGel battery technology for stationary and low-powered mobility applications.

Offgrid Energy Labs has designed ZincGel on a modular platform that can be modified to suit different application requirements and plans to commercially launch ZincGel products in India by next year. The startup will be targeting mobility partners to bring forth solutions for fleets operating low-powered electric vehicles like two-wheelers and three-wheelers.

“ZincGel battery technology is a highly efficient alternative to the costly imported batteries currently available in India. It will balance the performance and pricing of batteries with the introduction of zinc-based non-toxic materials. The first-of-its-kind technology has promising concepts and designs to address most of the issues faced by Li-ion batteries, especially in the battery swapping sector,” stated the company release.

ZincGel batteries are non-flammable, durable, and cost-efficient, fostering the growth of both low-powered mobility and renewable energy globally. These batteries can be easily manufactured, even in India, at scale as the raw materials are commonly available.

Offgrid Energy Labs aims to establish ZincGel as a commercially viable and sustainable technology for battery swapping applications in the low-powered electric mobility segment. It works on a partnership model that leverages the ecosystem while the company will primarily focus on technology innovations within ZincGel Battery for different applications.

Offgrid Energy has already partnered with Shell in the segment. It is also in talks with established brands in battery manufacturing, battery swapping, and other ecosystem enablers to create a financially viable network.

Rishi Srivastava, Co-founder, Offgrid Energy Labs, said, “We are here to reduce the dependency on Lithium-Ion battery packs and move to sustainable battery storage serving both the stationary as well as specific mobility applications. The demand for batteries is set to skyrocket soon not just in India, but across the globe. What differentiates ZincGel technology is innovative chemistry, design, and democratized materials.”

“We look forward to announcing further strategic pilots that solve vexing problems in the energy storage space. For electric three-wheelers, ZincGel will offer at least three times the life, reducing the frequency of battery replacement. Because of all these features, ZincGel is going to be cost-efficient and safer than any other battery technology used in these applications,” said Rishi Srivastava, co-founder, Offgrid Energy Labs.
