Nilar is a Swedish-based developer and manufacturer of batteries for stationary energy storage systems. Energy storage systems can be used to bridge imbalances between energy production and demand in order to, for example, improve the utilization of intermittent electricity production from renewable energy sources, such as solar energy and wind power, as well as to strengthen the increasingly strained power grids. Nilar's battery technology is based on nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) electrochemistry with a water-based electrolyte, which results in a strong environmental, safety, and longevity profile. The Company is headquartered in Täby and the energy-efficient production facility is, since 2012, located in Gävle, where the Company's research and development also takes place.
