A non-flammable nickel metal hydrogen battery
The American company EnerVenue has developed a nickel-metal-hydrogen battery that does not create a fire in the event of thermal runaway. These nickel-hydrogen batteries have a lifetime
30 years, a capacity of 30,000 cycles without suffering degradation and therefore without maintenance costs. The company estimates that the cost per kilowatt hour is one cent, and that the investment costs are higher than for lithium-ion batteries.
