Calix technology to be piloted in novel energy storage system with SaltX and Sumitomo

A Global Challenge

Renewable energy is becoming the new energy standard around the world and energy storage will be vital to support the transition from fossil fuel to green energy. Approximately 15 % of the global energy production capacity needs to be stored to mitigate the volatility of renewable energy production. Energy storage will therefore help to make energy delivery more reliable.

When cities and industries head towards fossil-free energy systems, to reach the goals of the Paris agreement, many terawatt-hours of storage must be deployed. This is a challenge Calix and SaltX are willing to solve.

Phil Hodgson, MD & CEO of Calix

“The use of Calix’s technology in base load energy storage systems was foreshadowed as we developed our SOCRATCES project in Europe – which is based upon solar-powered calcium looping and is progressing well ( We are very pleased to be working with SaltX on their system now also – which has great potential for load balancing applications as the grid decarbonises”.

Carl-Johan Liner, CEO of SaltX

“Calix are pioneers in developing sustainable solutions for many industries and therefore I believe this co-operation will have many benefits in SaltX’s mission of developing energy storage solutions that will have a real change for the renewable energy sector”.
