What Happens To Retired Electric Vehicle Batteries

IDTechEx Research Asks What Happens To Retired Electric Vehicle Batteries: You Live More Than Once. By 2030, second-life battery capacity will hit over 275GWh per year which presents huge opportunities for energy storage, according to IDTechEx's latest report named Second-life Electric Vehicle Batteries 2020-2030.

Batteries: Unknowns and Certainties

It is certain that lithium batteries will be dominant over the coming decade and their chemistry will change in pursuit of reduction in cost and flammability and to obtain greater energy density. Uniquely, IDTechEx forecasts the biggest application - electric vehicles - in 101 categories, but any forecast has assumptions that matter a great deal. In the IDTechEx report, "Lithium-Ion Batteries for Electric Vehicles 2020-2030", IDTechEx forecasts ten years assuming, not predicting, no global recession and no shortages.

America's largest solar energy storage system planned for Los Angeles

America's largest solar energy storage system planned for Los Angeles

Located on 2,650 acres in Kern County, California, the project will include two large-scale solar facilities that will capture 400 megawatts of solar energy and store up to 1,200 megawatt-hours of energy — all of which can be distributed to meet peak demand, reducing the need for natural gas at night or on cloudy days. The site will hold enough energy to power 283,330 homes across Los Angeles.

Stretchy plastic electrolytes for new lithium-ion battery design

Stretchy plastic electrolytes for new lithium-ion battery design

The growing popularity of lithium-ion batteries in recent years has put a strain on the world's supply of cobalt and nickel - two metals integral to current battery designs - and sent prices surging. In a bid to develop alternative designs for lithium-based batteries with less reliance on those scarce metals, researchers have developed a promising new cathode and electrolyte system that replaces expensive metals and traditional liquid electrolyte with lower cost transition metal fluorides and a solid polymer electrolyte.
