Transformative energy storage technology and battery manufacturing facility contributing to grid reliability and resiliency
Form Energy’s first commercial product is a rechargeable iron-air battery capable of continuously discharging electricity for 100 hours.
The active components of the iron-air battery system are some of the safest, cheapest, and most abundant materials on the planet—low-cost iron, water, and air. When discharging, an iron-air battery breathes in oxygen and converts iron to rust. While charging, an electrical current converts the rust back to iron and the battery breathes out oxygen.
Time to market is critical for battery production plants amid the increase in renewable energy generation and associated demand for energy storage solutions. That’s why Form Energy had to fast-track their new manufacturing facility set to produce 100-hour iron-air batteries.
Our job? To provide architecture, buildings engineering, and industrial engineering services on Form Factory 1—a project which also brought new purpose to the former Weirton Steel Mill site in West Virginia.
Form Factory 1 is expected to begin operation in mid-to-late 2024. When fully operational, the facility will have an annual production capacity of 500 megawatts of batteries and support technologies capable of cost-effectively storing electricity for multiple days—during extended periods of extreme weather, grid outages, or low renewable generation.
