TEXEL receives financial support from Swedish government agency Vinnova for battery technology development

Swedish battery technology development company TEXEL Energy Storage AB (TEXEL)
receives support from Swedish government agency Vinnova to develop and demonstrate a
new unique battery technology, originally developed in collaboration with, among others, the
US Department of Energy (DOE), and one of their laboratories, Savannah River National
Laboratory (SRNL).

On Wednesday, TEXEL received the news that the Swedish government is now entering and
supporting the development of TEXEL´s new battery technology. Previously, the company has been
supported in its cooperation with the US government, but also by the Ministry of Industry in Australia to
develop and commercialize the new battery technology.


*We are of course happy that we are now also supported by the Swedish government, as we are a
Swedish company and still hope to maintain parts of both development and future production of our
batteries, not only in US and Australia, but as well in Europe and Sweden* - says CEO Lars
Jacobsson.


TEXEL, in collaboration with, among others, US DOE, SRNL and the Australian government, has
developed a new battery technology based on energy storage with a thermochemical solution. The
technology is significantly more cost-effective than existing Lithium-Ion batteries, has no cyclic
degradation, does not include any rare-earth minerals, is 100% recyclable and has very high energy
density.


In September 2018, TEXEL´s battery technology was appointed "The Success Story Beyond Lithium-
Ion Batteries" at X-Labs, the large US DOE energy storage conference at Stanford University in
Silicon Valley.


“The appointment in Silicon Valley was a direct result of the large and unique benefits we can offer the
market through our battery technology. The collaboration with Vinnova gives us further opportunities to
develop and optimize our new battery technology”- says CEO Lars Jacobsson.

In its ambition to replace fossil fuels, TEXEL is working on developing a new battery or energy storage
technology focusing on the markets for large-scale energy storage, buses, trucks, ferries, commercial
buildings up to large-scale energy storage for wind and solar power generation. TEXEL has
subsidiaries with development operations also in the UK and the US.
