One of the reasons why mass deployment of solar power still remains a distant goal is that most solar panels use lithium-ion batteries, which are expensive, harmful to the environment, and come with the added risk of fires and explosions due to overheating.

For the first time, a safer, cheaper, and more durable alternative to lithium ion batteries has been developed in the form of zinc energy based storage systems.
