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.

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.​​​​​​​​
