Lithium-ion Batteries That Last Longer in Extreme Cold

Lithium-ion Batteries That Last Longer in Extreme Cold

When temperatures fall below freezing, cellphones need to be recharged frequently, and electric cars have shorter driving ranges. This is because their lithium-ion batteries' anodes get sluggish, holding less charge and draining energy quickly. To improve electrical performance in the extreme cold, researchers have replaced the traditional graphite anode in a lithium-ion battery with a bumpy carbon-based material, which maintains its rechargeable storage capacity down to -31 F.

Still Waiting on a Commercial Need for Take-off: SWCNTs

Commercializing a new material is not easy. Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are the higher-performance variants of the carbon nanotube family, but unlike their multi-walled counterpart, they are still hunting for their killer application.

Electric Boats & Ships: Markets & Technologies Update

This IDTechEx premium article provides an update on electric leisure boating and electric ship markets in 2022. Drivers and data behind the recent surge in leisure boating sales are explained, with breakdowns by power class and commentary on future expectations. In the commercial and industrial (C&I) shipping sector, ferries have long been the low hanging fruit and remain the most common electric vessel type in-service, but regulations are driving change. Behemoth battery packs installed on a small number of giant sea-going vessels are expected to take over and dominate maritime battery demand within ten years.

Introduction to Interconnectors

Introduction to Interconnectors

Interconnectors are used between countries to transmit electricity from one market to another. This benefits a country that does not wish to curtail their renewable energy, and can aid with fluctuations in supply due to intermittence of solar and wind. Large growth is being seen in the European market, with many projects planned for construction. However, some countries should be cautious so as not to be taken advantage of, as governments must decide whether such projects could affect their domestic electricity prices negatively.
