Lithium-ion is currently the most widely used battery technology. But if you follow the news surrounding battery breakthroughs, that is about to change.
Researchers at Technical University Ilmenau want to find out how lithium-ion batteries can be charged faster and more efficiently, manufactured more cheaply and have a longer lifespan.
Do recycled car batteries perform as well as batteries used for the first time? A new storage facility in the Navarra region in Spain should provide the answer.
Carbon membrane should help prevent dendrite forming in lithium-metal batteries. If that works, it brings the e-car closer to being able to drive 1,000 kilometers without recharging.
Economic after-use of lithium car batteries would be possible, but has so far failed due to open safety issues. The Graz University of Technology in Austria is researching the parameters.
Stadshaven Brewery in Rotterdam works as sustainably as possible by using a local recycling system, discarded batteries from rental scooters for energy storage and reusing waste water.
Scientists at the University of Bayreuth have set themselves the goal of significantly improving environmentally-friendly flow batteries in terms of efficiency and storage capacity based on iron.
Researchers at TU Eindhoven will work with Dutch companies to accelerate the ALD manufacturing technique. This offers unprecedented possibilities for e.g. displays and batteries.
The better the quality of car batteries, the more likely they will serve as a backup for the energy grid, as shown at The Business Booster, a trade fair for start-ups supporting the energy transition.
An electric vehicle charging station at a Spanish service station is one of the first in Europe to use energy stored in 'second-hand' batteries.
Each week in this section we give a follow-up to some of our best read stories. IO columnist Jan Wouters is predicting a second electric revolution. How far along is the solid-state battery?
The Finnish energy group wants to create a recycling cluster for batteries used in electric cars in Harjavalta.
Inventions for electricity storage increased by 14 percent annually over the past decade, according to a study by the European Patent Office (EPO) and the International Energy Agency (IEA).
"The outcome of this investigation gives every reason to discuss battery life with leasing companies"
The quest for a cobalt-free battery for use in electric vehicles has received extra support from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program. The COBRA (CObalt-free […]
Wait a few more years and you’ll see that electric cars will be the equivalent of petrol cars. That’s as far as Total Cost of […]
Car sharing, smaller batteries and better recycling needed to compensate for the nearing shortage of rare metals
In order to be able to drive electrically, various rare metals are required. This will cause a problem in the near future. Replacing these metals […]
Valmet Automotive has introduced a battery management system (BMS) based on single-cell monitoring. It not only sends the individual cell data wirelessly to the BMS. […]
The sales roll-out of the Samsung Galaxy Fold seems to be running a bit sluggish at the moment. Not just due to a few teething […]
