Cost and Versatility

• The Salgenx saltwater battery is a competitive alternative to Tesla's lithium batteries, offering the same MWh storage capacity but at a lower cost.

• The versatility of Salgenx batteries sets them apart, as they can perform multiple functions beyond energy storage:

1. Thermal Energy Storage (TES): Capable of liquid heat or cold storage.

2. Desalination: Can be used for desalination processes.

3. Graphene Production: Has the capability to produce graphene.

4. EDM Machining: Can perform Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) while charging.

5. Tax Credits: Eligible for USA tax credits for battery manufacturing and energy storage, which further reduces the overall cost.


• While Tesla's lithium grid-scale batteries are leading the market with rapid sales growth and significant profitability, Salgenx's saltwater batteries offer a compelling alternative with additional functionalities and lower costs.

• Tesla's current market dominance is evident with their ambitious deployment targets and high gross profits. However, the unique features and cost advantages of Salgenx's batteries position them as a strong competitor in the grid-scale battery market.

This comparison highlights the strengths and opportunities of both technologies, showing how Salgenx could potentially disrupt the market with its multi-functional and cost-effective energy storage solutions.
