Laboratory testing of the company's novel prototype cathode material have yielded a set of critical data that translates into significant lithium-ion battery performance projections for BioSolar to target.
In the case of the relatively new market for very large, ground-based lithium-ion battery packs for such things as grid peak shaving, weight is not a primary issues, volume can matter somewhat but life, cost over life, performance and reliability matter greatly.
Efficient low-cost batteries are the new frontier and the new frontier is here now from all-electric vehicles to home energy systems.
There are several key differences between the Iron Edison Lithium Iron battery and the Tesla Powerwall. First, an Iron Edison Lithium Iron battery is available in traditional nominal voltages of 12V, 24V and 48V, making it fully compatible with common battery-based inverters and charge controllers from major manufacturers like Outback, Schneider Electric, Magnum, MidNite Solar and SMA.
And while lithium has traditionally been controlled by a handful of major global suppliers, spiking demand is changing this landscape drastically.
sonnen's Philipp Schroeder: "We are headed for a revolution that has the potential to completely abolish pedestrians and give congested inner cities new freedom!"
Li-ion solutions are both scalable and flexible in their power-to-energy ratio. The flexibility enables MTR-type solutions for high-power smoothing, medium-power options for shaping renewable output to meet a forecast, and high-energy systems for shifting of renewable energy to periods of peak load.
The U.S. Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and the International Electrotechnical Committee (IEC) are proposing to develop standardized labels that are color-coded to allow for better identification between lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries.
The developments in battery storage systems being launched to the UK market this year will help to distribute energy more efficiently, and with the PV market in a state of flux following the reductions in the tariff rates, the battery storage developments should provide some stability to the trade.
The lithium oligopoly is already a dinosaur, and new lithium projects on highly prospective land forwarded by companies with lower market caps and strong management are what investors will be looking for.
Utilities are turning to energy storage systems (ESS) to help power grids withstand the effects of high peak demands, instability and the unpredictability of energy that can be gone with the wind.
same capacity half the size
Battery energy storage systems (ESSs) are becoming well established to help the grid integration of solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind energy, particularly in remote and island communities. It is important to understand the different roles that energy storage can play, including controlling ramp rates, smoothing, shaping, peak shaving and frequency regulation.
Using battery systems for peak shaving is highly beneficial; enabling a constant load on the engine ultimately leads to high efficiency and energy saving at the engine level.
Saft, the world's leading designer and manufacturer of advanced technology batteries for industry, announces its lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries were on board the eleven new-generation satellites, built by Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC), launched on December 21st 2015 by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida for the ORBCOMM (Nasdaq: ORBC) Generation 2 (OG2) constellation, a telecommunication network.

Sierra was the first to introduce a combination volumetric vortex and multivariable mass flow meter in 1997. Today, Sierra's completely redesigned InnovaMass® iSeries™ 240i/241i builds on two decades of success measuring five process variables for gas, liquid and steam with one connection. Now, with the latest hyper-fast microprocessors, robust software applications, field diagnostic and adjustment capability, and a new state-of-the-art flow calibration facility, Sierra's vortex iSeries delivers precision, performance, and application flexibility never before possible.
