EnerVenue has agreed to supply Green Energy Renewable Solutions’ batteries for use in custom building blocks for marine applications, construction sites and other heavy industry projects. The deal marks EnerVenue’s fourth major battery supply deal since it began operations in 2020.

EnerVenue, an American nickel-hydrogen battery startup launched in the midst of a pandemic in the summer of 2020, signed a general supply agreement with Green Energy Renewable Solutions, according to which the latter will purchase and supply 250 MWh of batteries over the next three years.
The company will deliver 50 MWh of capacity in 2023, 100 MWh in 2024 and 100 MWh in 2025. Green Energy’s parent company, Nicon Industries A/S, is a steel and aluminum producer for wind, offshore and of the marine industry – aims to build 1 GW of storage projects within three years, the company said in a statement.
“EnerVenue technology offers exceptional durability and longevity with minimal maintenance requirements, and its fire-resistant properties are particularly important in our anticipated applications,” said Henrik Jensen, CEO of Nicon Industries.
EnerVenue claims that its nickel-hydrogen batteries have a lifespan of more than 30 years, through more than 30,000 cycles without degradation, along with recharge, overdischarge and deep cycle capabilities. The company also claims that the cost per kilowatt-hour is just pennies, as well as capital expenditure costs that exceed lithium-ion batteries.
Unlike lithium-ion batteries, metal-hydrogen batteries perform well in extreme heat and extreme cold, the company claims. The solution performs optimally in an ambient temperature range of -40 F to 140 F F (60 C). Because of this, the battery supposedly does not pose a risk of fire or thermal runaway and does not contain toxic materials, making it suitable for recycling.
These properties are particularly important for safety and compliance in marine and offshore projects, where Nicon plans to deploy data storage solutions in the long term. Initially, the batteries will be deployed on land for large construction and heavy industry projects, packaged in individual building blocks. Solutions must meet the requirements of DNV certification and CE certification for deployment in the offshore and marine market.
“By 2024, Nicon forklifts will switch from fossil fuels to electricity and will be charged with Green Energy containers,” said Jens Juul, Nicon’s COO. “In addition, the electricity required for our offshore mooring work on the wind turbine vessels will be supplied by our own battery containers, charged overnight with renewable energy from the wind farms.”
In June EnerVenue has agreed to provide 460 MWh of its batteries to Sonnell Power Solutions for large-scale renewable energy and storage in Puerto Rico. in may Pine Gate has acquired 2.4 GWh of the company’s batteries. Spring 2021 the company signed its first major distribution agreement with Hong Kong’s Towngas.
