Alsym Energy, a company developing advanced, non-flammable rechargeable batteries, has successfully raised $78 million. Tata Limited and General Catalyst led this major funding round, with additional contributions from Thrive Capital, Thomvest, and current investor Drads Capital.

This fresh injection of funds will be used to grow Alsym’s team, further develop prototypes, and enhance production processes, all to meet rising customer demand for safe and efficient batteries.

Alsym’s breakthrough battery technology

The way we generate electricity is changing, with more focus on renewable sources. But because these sources can be unpredictable, we need battery energy storage systems to ensure power’s always available, even when fossil fuel plants are not running.

The first battery Alsym introduced to this market was Alsym Green. This battery is uniquely powerful, packing more energy into a smaller footprint than others. Notably, it does so without using any flammable or lithium-based materials. In the future, Alsym plans to create similar high-performance batteries for boats, motorcycles, tricycles, and cars.

Mukesh Chatter, CEO and Co-Founder of Alsym Energy articulates the increasing necessity of diversified battery technologies in the wake of the clean energy transition. He asserts the need for more versatile battery solutions to meet various challenges our changing climate presents.

Alsym Energy and its Co-Founder, Dr. Kripa Varanasi, understand battery storage systems‘ immense potential and necessity. These systems are crucial in delivering a stable power supply, even during times when the sun fails to shine or the wind blows. The world’s varying climates and dangerous conditions necessitate adaptable solutions that address a vast array of requirements economically and safely.

The remarkable blend of low-cost and non-toxic technology poised in Alsym’s design will make the transition to clean energy an economical option worldwide, including in developed and G-77 nations.

Correctly harnessed and utilized, this technology can speed up the global shift towards a more sustainable future by making decarbonization affordable and accessible to all, underscored Dr. Varanasi.

Genevieve Kinney, a partner at General Catalyst, shared her thoughts on the recent developments in renewable energy resources. According to her, there has been a record escalation of renewables worldwide.

However, the practical limitations and supply chain uncertainties associated with lithium-ion batteries are becoming increasingly evident, leading to a surge in demand for viable alternatives. She hopes these alternatives will compete effectively in performance, cost, and availability.
