Anzode: Zinc Batteries for California Electrical Customer Power Backup
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Project Applicant
Anzode Inc.

Document Description
The goal of this Agreement is to achieve the anticipated performance level through prototype design, fabrication, validation, and testing. And, to demonstrate operational battery prototypes and manufacturability on an application-relevant scale. Ratepayer Benefits include greater electricity reliability with the proposed alkaline battery technology as backup power – especially among the 2.7 million Californians in fire safety electrical outage risk areas and the 9 million in disadvantaged communities – 55 to 65 percent lower costs, and increased safety. The Recipient’s technology uses materials such as Zn and Mn, which are abundant and safer than lithium-ion batteries, and the batteries can last ten years or longer with intermittent use.
