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.

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

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

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

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

Our batteries are lithium, nickel, and cobalt-free. Ensuring a secure North American supply chain.

Zinc-ion production reduces the carbon footprint more than 50% compared to lithium-ion.

A step closer to a net zero world.

Introducing the zinc-ion battery

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

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

Our battery is fully recyclable after end of life with current recycling processes.

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.
