In an era where technology is advancing at an unprecedented pace, the need for efficient, safe, and sustainable power sources has never been greater. Enter Awesom Energy B.V., a Netherlands-based company co-founded by Dmitry Grigoryev, a seasoned businessman with a rich history in the energy sector and co-founded by Vladimir Savanovich, a scientist and experienced entrepreneur. This groundbreaking technology promises to revolutionize not just the energy sector but also the Internet of Things (IoT) and mobile devices. Here's how.
People Behind the Vision:
Dmitry Grigoryev, born in Almaty, Kazakhstan, is no stranger to the complexities of the energy sector. With an MBA from the prestigious SDA Bocconi School of Management and a former role as the Chief Financial Officer of The Rompetrol Group, Dmitry brings a wealth of experience and expertise to Awesom Energy. His diverse career has seen him working in construction, financial institutions, and major oil and gas projects, making him uniquely qualified to lead a venture as innovative as Awesom Energy B.V.
Vladimir Savanovich is a physics scientist, a highly experienced business leader, and high-tech and biotech entrepreneur/early-stage investor, who dedicated his life to commercializing science-based technologies for the benefit of humanity.
FIBs operate on the shuttle of fluoride ions between a metal electrode and a metal fluoride electrode. Unlike conventional lithium-ion batteries, FIBs offer extraordinary technical characteristics, including theoretical energy densities as high as 5000 Wh/L. In practical tests, these batteries have already achieved an impressive 1200 Wh/L and a power density in excess of 4C.
One of the most significant advantages of FIBs is their safety. Traditional lithium-ion batteries are notorious for their overheating issues, posing risks of fire and explosion. In contrast, FIBs use a solid metal ceramic electrolyte that guarantees complete safety across a wide range of temperatures. These batteries can absorb heat but never emit any, making them ideal for IoT and mobile devices that often suffer from overheating.
FIBs are not just powerful; they are also environmentally friendly. As the world grapples with the challenges of climate change, the need for sustainable technologies is paramount. FIBs answer this call by offering an eco-friendlier alternative to lithium-ion batteries.
Applications in IoT
The Internet of Things is a network of interconnected devices that communicate with each other to make our lives more convenient. However, the proliferation of IoT devices has led to increased energy consumption. FIBs, with their high energy density and safety features, are perfectly suited to power these devices.
Longevity and Efficiency
IoT devices often operate in remote or hard-to-reach locations, making battery longevity crucial. FIBs are designed to sustain at least 3000 cycles and have a very low self-discharging rate of less than 1% per year. This makes them ideal for long-term deployments in IoT applications.
The mobile device market is another sector that stands to benefit immensely from FIB technology. Imagine a smartphone that needs to be charged only once a week or a laptop that can run for days on a single charge. Awesom Energy's FIBs can make this a reality.
When it comes to industrial production, FIBs are not just efficient but also cost-effective. Production costs are estimated to be below 100 USD per kWh, making them a viable option for mass production of mobile devices.
