AquaBattery is a clean-tech startup with a growing team of highly motivated, leading and experienced engineers and technicians for the development of new battery systems for the storage of renewable energy. We make use of the osmosis principle, whereby we can store and generate energy using fresh water and salt (e.g. NaCl), also known as the BlueBattery. This concept has already yielded several awards and is now being tested for use as energy storage in households, solar parks and neighbourhoods. AquaBattery is also developing the TerraBattery, which is based on nickel-iron technology.
