THE FUTURE OF ELECTRIFICATION
The First Rechargeable, Safe, Electric Fuel
We see a cleaner and more equitable future driven by the decentralization of energy distribution.
We use nanotechnology to enable a future of safe, clean, and sustainable energy.
THE CHALLENGES TODAY
THE GRID CAN'T SCALE WITH PROJECTED GROWTH OF BATTERIES
LITHIUM-ION IGNITES WHEN IT CONTACTS AIR OR WATER
THE LITHIUM SUPPLY CHAIN IS NOT GREEN OR SECURE
LITHIUM CHEMISTRIES CAN'T REACH A SUFFICIENT ENERGY DENSITY FOR FLIGHT
The world's first non-consumable, nonflammable, non-combustible, rechargeable electric fuel engineered with domestically sourced, abundant raw materials. We’re changing the way the world thinks about energy storage and distribution, electric mobility, and safety.
We are shifting the paradigm from “fuels and batteries being opposites of each other” towards “why don’t we make fuel out of batteries?"
Influit developed a rechargeable liquid energy storage format to address basing and defense capability needs under the support of DARPA. The closed-cycle energy storage ecosystem is enabled by mobile flow battery pods that can be connected to, and accumulate energy from, either distributed or centralized intermittent sources of renewable energy. While Influit’s NEF battery technology is an attractive solution for transportation and other large battery applications, we've targeted the electric utility vehicle (EUV) market early on. We have commercial engagements with manufacturers of floor cleaning equipment, forklifts, warehouse load bearers, pickers, carts, and more.
Influit designed, engineered, and produced a NEF rapid recharger for NASA to meet the needs of future urban air mobility challenges. Between batteries, hydrogen fuel cells, and gasoline, batteries prove to be the most energy efficient. However, lithium ion batteries, the current battery of choice for most EVs on the market, come with drawbacks.
Influit designed a NEF charging + refueling pod designed to be compatible with the U.S. Air Force’s existing infrastructure, bypassing the need for costly modifications. While every branch of the military is dependent on oil, the Air Force is the largest consumer of crude oil in the Department of Defense, reaching two billion gallons of aviation fuel annually, making up 81 percent of the total Air Force energy budget.
INFLUIT'S FLEXIBLE DESIGN
Influit's systems address a wide variety of applications for mobility, spanning terrestrial, sea, and aerospace. We design for new applications based on four inputs.
