Advanced rechargeable zinc lithium-ion battery

Renewable energy resources are intermittent in nature meaning that the energy can be produced only when the sun is shining, and the wind is blowing. Therefore, there is a high demand for an electrical energy storage system (EES) to store the energy during generation time and give it back to grid later. Recently, zinc lithium-ion (ZLI) batteries, which operate using much safer aqueous electrolytes rather than organic counterparts as in LIB, have gained tremendous attention due to their cost effectiveness and higher durability compared to typical lithium-ion battery. For operating and install necessary infrastructure such as flanges and fittings in remote project locations, the industrial partner Pro-Flange Ltd., demands uninterrupted supply of electricity for power tools and equipment. However, the current power supply usually suffers either from unstable grid supply or unavailable grid at the project sites. TO BE CONT'D
