Eos Energy accelerates the shift to clean energy with zinc-powered energy storage systems

Written by Staff Writer

It is a rare thing for a company to at once forward the clean energy agenda, deliver safe and sustainable products and create significant near-shoring and PA-based jobs and workforce development programs. Eos Energy Enterprises is making all of those things happen, right now.

Eos is the leader in creating a commercially-proven long-duration energy storage solution for companies, utilities and municipalities that is safer, easier to build, and more cost efficient and sustainable than Li-Ion batteries that currently dominate the market. Eos is the only company successfully manufacturing at scale and shipping zinc-based energy storage systems.

With storage systems built using the patented Eos Znyth™ technology, companies and communities can build self-owned microgrids to produce and regulate reliable, low-cost power. Znyth is a non-wired storage solution that provides critical supply during outages and congestion on today’s electrical grids. The batteries do not present a fire risk, have a greater than 20-year life expectancy, are easily scalable and are made for discharging over 4 to 12 hour duration, making them perfect for pairing with wind and solar power generation. They are also made in America using easy-to-source materials that are primarily domestic, do not use rare earth materials and are fully recyclable. In short, Eos has pioneered and advanced a technology whose time has come

By locating in Turtle Creek, the Eos facility is in close proximity to numerous economically challenged communities in the Mon Valley, and thus provides much needed sustainable and high-value jobs in an area of great need.

Eos is not just a growing employer in PA, but is committed to supporting underserved communities. The company is already set up to advance economic and racial justice; registered apprenticeship programs, targeted investments, and equitable hiring practices to prioritize job access for underserved populations – low-income workers, workers of color, as well as workers in environmental justice, deindustrialized, and energy transition communities.
