Sustainable Production, Traceability of Materials for Batteries

Sustainable Production, Traceability of Materials for Batteries

The success of electric cars on the markets may be determined by production methods and origin information of battery materials in the future. VTT and Geological Survey of Finland GTK launched a three-year project with their industrial partners to promote the sustainable production methods and traceability of battery materials. A promising starting point for tracing the origin is offered by the fingerprint conserved in the metals, which may directly tell where the metals were mined.

How are Batteries for Boats and Ships Different?

How are Batteries for Boats and Ships Different?

Since 2016 the market for electric and hybrid commercial vessels has started to follow an exponential growth pattern as maritime battery prices halved. However, system-level battery prices for boats are still roughly four times higher than the battery packs sold in electric cars. The following article explores why.

End-of-life electric vehicle batteries: recycling or second-life?

End-of-life electric vehicle batteries: recycling or second-life?

With the rapid adoption of electric vehicles (EVs), the demand for Li-ion batteries will grow significantly in the coming decades. As EV batteries beginning to reach their end-of-life, we will see an exponential growth of retired EV batteries available for recycling in the coming decades.

Solar Energy Farms Offer Second Life for Electric Vehicle Batteries

Solar Energy Farms Offer Second Life for Electric Vehicle Batteries

As electric vehicles rapidly grow in popularity worldwide, there will soon be a wave of used batteries whose performance is no longer sufficient for vehicles that need reliable acceleration and range. But a new study shows that these batteries could still have a useful and profitable second life as backup storage for grid-scale solar photovoltaic installations, where they could perform for more than a decade in this less demanding role.

A Spreadable Way to Stabilise Solid State Batteries

A Spreadable Way to Stabilise Solid State Batteries

Solid state batteries are of great interest to the electric vehicle industry. Scientists now present a new way of taking this promising concept closer to large-scale application. An interlayer, made of a spreadable, 'butter-like' material helps improve the current density tenfold, while also increasing performance and safety.​​​​​​​​

Fuel Cells: Accelerating Towards the Rocks?

Fuel Cells: Accelerating Towards the Rocks?

With a record 2019 under their belt, fuel cells seem to still be very much on the table for automakers. But are they simply the proverbial ship that is accelerating, but pointed towards the rocks? IDTechEx analysts Luke Gear and Daniele Gatti share their thoughts.
