PORTLAND, Oregon—(April, 2024)— ZincFive®, the world leader in nickel-zinc (NiZn) battery-based solutions for immediate power applications, has been selected as winner of the Overall CleanTech Innovation of the Year award by CleanTech Breakthrough. 

CleanTech Breakthrough Awards is a prestigious program dedicated to honoring and recognizing the “breakthrough” achievements and innovations in the international Clean Technology industry. The awards program encompasses a wide range of categories within the Clean Technology sector, including renewable energy, smart grid technology, sustainable transportation, carbon technologies, and other innovative solutions. CleanTech Breakthrough is part of the Tech Breakthrough organization, a leading global market intelligence and recognition platform for today’s most competitive categories of technology.

This year’s program attracted thousands of nominations from over 12 different countries throughout the world. Award winners have been chosen based on their technological contribution to a cleaner, greener, and more sustainable future. A distinguished panel of judges has evaluated each entry to identify and recognize the breakthrough innovators in the global clean technology industry.

“We are delighted to receive this recognition, which celebrates the sustainability-driven innovation at the core of our technology,” stated Tim Hysell, CEO and Co-Founder of ZincFive. “Winning the CleanTech Breakthrough Award underscores the significant impact of our nickel-zinc battery technology and emphasizes our steadfast commitment to delivering high-performing, safe, and environmentally friendly power solutions to global energy markets.”

ZincFive’s nickel-zinc battery technology has been consistently commended for its breakthrough innovation of immediate power solutions for the global mission-critical backup and energy storage markets. ZincFive was recently recognized by TIME Magazine as one of America’s Top GreenTech Companies of 2024, earned finalist spots in both the esteemed 2024 Edison Awards™ and S&P Global 2023 Platts Global Energy Awards, and won Mission Critical 2023 Top Tier Product Award in the Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) category. 

 ZincFive’s patented nickel-zinc electrochemistry sets a higher standard for battery technology that not only meets today’s growing power demands but does so safely and sustainably, challenging the dominance of its predecessors, lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries.

“At ZincFive, we believe in the power of good chemistry,” added Hysell. “We maintain that immediate power should be powerfully sustainable, as well as safe. That’s why, unlike other electrochemistries, the elements of our battery chemistry require fewer resources to produce and can be recycled again and again. And with zero risk of thermal runaway at the cell level, our batteries deliver high-rate immediate power that’s safe for both people and the planet.”
