Liquid Metal Battery Corp., a clean technology company based in Cambridge, said it has unveiled its new name – Ambri.
Ambri seeks to commercialize a new battery technology that will enable electric grids to use renewable energy more efficiently. The liquid metal battery project began at the Massachusetts Institute of Technolgy lab of Professor Donald Sadoway with financial support from the Deshpande Center, the Chesonis Family Foundation, the French energy company Total, and ARPA-E.
This change reflects our origins – the string “Ambri” is contained in “Cambridge,” – and also is emblematic of our team’s passion for developing a disruptive storage technology that will completely change how electric grids are operated globally,” company chief executive Phil Giudice said in a statement.
Ambri has also adopted a new tagline: “Storing Electricity for Our Future.”
