Companies Batteries

Sila Nanotechnologies Inc., USA

To get to mass market electric vehicles, you have to lower the cost of the battery pack on a dollars per kilowatt-hour ($/kWh) basis. The best way to do this is through higher volumetric energy density, which Sila materials enable. More energy in each cell means fewer cells for the same battery pack more

Volterion GmbH, Germany

volterion GmbH was founded in 2015 as a spin-off of the Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT, Oberhausen. The company produces and sells compact-size redox flow batteries for private homes. With the novel energy storage self-generated power from fluctuating renewable energies can be retrieved even in the ni more

Battronics AG, Switzerland

At Battronics, we summarize the knowledge, create reports and give detailed seminars about different technologies used in Li-ion batteries. These range from different cathode chemistries up to aging analysis for applications in e.g. electric vehicles. more

  • A nacre-inspired separator coating for impact-tolerant lithium batteries

    Lithium batteries are easy to explode? Scientists at University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) may have a way to prevent. In modern life, lithium-ion batteries are used as mobile power sources in all aspects of daily life, thus the safety of lithium-ion batteries is very important. As a k more

  • A composite membrane for long-life zinc-based flow batteries

    Researchers led by Profs. LI Xianfeng from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences recently developed a composite membrane for long-life zinc-based flow batteries. The zinc-based flow battery (ZFB) has captured much attention as a stationary energy storage more

  • Battery research: Finding the right blend!

    In the battery of the future, solids will replace the currently used electrolyte solutions. A team of scientists at LMU has now developed a series of new sodium ion conductors. The secret of the best material in the series lies in the exact mixing of the ingredients. The days of conventional lithium more
