ALUMINIUM BATTERIES

Alor was established for the purpose of developing and later producing sustainable aluminum batteries. The aluminum batteries will accelerate energy transitions in fisheries, agriculture, transport, and industry. For example, the aluminum batteries can be used as:  

  • Backup power.

  • Batteries in vehicles instead of lead acid batteries. 

  • Batteries in boats.

  • Batteries in a wide range of operations, such as fisheries, agriculture, and industrial production. 

 

Alor is also working on the development and production of large aluminum energy storage units that can store excess electricity and promote improved utilization. In addition, large energy storage units will enhance safety when it comes to transmission of electricity, e.g., due to storms, volcanic eruptions, or other natural disasters.

 

KEY IN ENERGY TRANSITION

Alor's aluminum batteries will be environmentally friendly and will play a key role in the transition to clean, renewable energy.  Their production will bring added value, good paying jobs, and new technical expertise to Iceland. 

Alor’s battery prototypes are expected to be ready before the end of 2022
and a small-scale production is expected to begin in 2023.

ALOR’S ALUMINUM BATTERY SOLUTION HAVE VARIOUS BENEFITS

ENVIRONMENT

- Can reduce carbon emissions in fisheries, agriculture and industry


- Can improve efficient use of green energy


- Can replace backup power stations that use polluting energy sources

SAFETY

- No explosive hazard

- No fire hazard

 

- Easy disposal

 

- Safe transport

SOCIETY

- Deliver electricity to remote locations outside the energy grid

 

- Can optimize electrification in harbors where routes can restrain energy delivery

 

- Can be a safety measure if energy grids get temporarily disconnected in case of bad weather or natural disaster

COLLABORATION

Alor collaborates with the University of Iceland and the Spanish the company Albufera Energy Storage, which is a leader in development of aluminum batteries in Europe. The Spanish company has worked on development of the technology for the last 9 years. Alor has also signed contracts with Landsnet, Orku náttúrunnar and Tengill.
