Commercial development of Na-ion batteries

Commercial development of Na-ion batteries

While academic development of Na-ion batteries has been ongoing, CATLs public entry into the Na-ion market has catalysed interest in the commercial role of Na-ion as a future battery technology. Despite this interest, there are only a handful of small companies, plus CATL, developing Na-ion technology, highlighting the difficulty of developing new battery chemistries as well as competing with lithium based chemistries. This premium article will provide an overview of the companies developing Na-ion batteries.

EV Power Electronics: Driving Semiconductor Demand in a Chip Shortage

EV Power Electronics: Driving Semiconductor Demand in a Chip Shortage

Semiconductors are the lifeblood of the modern age. From your watch to a washing machine, everything these days seems to be 'smart', 'connected' and therefore enabled by semiconductors. Unsurprisingly then, a massive shortage of chips present 'across all categories', according to some industry executives, is having a profound impact.

EV Battery Packs Is the Major Application the Aerogel Industry Needed

Electric vehicle battery packs have increasing requirements concerning their thermal runaway mitigation strategy. Meanwhile, the aerogel industry is overly dependent on oil & gas and in need of diversification. Could this be the perfect match between a problem looking for a solution and a solution looking for a problem?

Stretching the Capacity of Flexible Energy Storage

Some electronics can bend, twist and stretch in wearable displays, biomedical applications and soft robots. While these devices' circuits have become increasingly pliable, the batteries and supercapacitors that power them are still rigid. Now, researcher report a flexible supercapacitor with electrodes made of wrinkled titanium carbide — a type of MXene nanomaterial — that maintained its ability to store and release electronic charges after repetitive stretching.
