Pylontech obtained the world’s first sodium ion battery certificate granted by TÜV Rheinland on March 3, 2023, which is based on UL1973:2022, IEC62619:2022, IEC62660-2:2018, and IEC62660-3:2022. This certificate marks Pylontech’s advancement and maturity in sodium ion battery technology, which paves the way for its application in energy storage.
“Being the first company to get international safety standards of sodium ion battery surely reinforces Pylontech’s all along positioning — a dedicated energy storage system provider with comprehensive research development and manufacturing capabilities,” says Geoffrey Song VP of international business. “We will strive to leverage our capabilities to accelerate the carbon neutrality process, regardless of the technology, economic or environmental challenges”
BNEF expects the global installed capacity of energy storage expects to be 233 GWh by the end of 2030, with the compound annual growth rate of 21%. Meeting that quota will be difficult with the current reliance on lithium-based batteries. The technological breakthrough of sodium ion batteries could be huge, easing the pressure on the energy storage supply.
Pylontech leverages its advantages in independent research and development of cell and vertical integration of production chain to deliver reliable and safe energy storage system in the long run.
By the end of 2022, Pylontech delivered more than 1,000,000 energy storage systems. Benefiting from the rich experience in energy storage of lithium battery, Pylontech will drive the application of sodium ion battery in the field of energy storage with its technological innovation and bring more value to the users.
