EVs and Fuel Cells - Articles, Stories & Interviews
Lithium-ion batteries are the only technology that can meet the performance requirements for electric vehicles and renewable energy storage. However, the demand for lithium-ion batteries is rising far quicker than investments in the raw materials required to produce them.
China, is looking to become a dominant player in the rising global ev market. Chinese EV manufacturers are expected to start expanding overseas, while Beijing already controls a large part of the global EV supply chain, beginning with critical minerals processing.
Nickel’s major advantage in battery applications is that it delivers a higher energy density and greater storage capacity at a lower cost than other metals. In li-ion battery production, there are two types of cathode chemistries dependent on this material.
Recently, a report from industry analysts stated that by the end of this year - 2020 - China alone will generate approximately 500,000 metric tons of used lithium-ion batteries and that by 2030.
There are advantages and disadvantages to any type of energy source. In this article, I will discuss the disadvantages of renewable energy. Wind energy is one universally used type of renewable energy. It is also one of the fastest spreading resources for electricity. But .
Charging stations can be an eyesore in inner cities, and the bulky cables and plugs can also be an inconvenience in people's garages. Contactless inductive charging with coils embedded in the garage floor or the road surface has none of these visual or mechanical annoyances.
The main design difference between FLA and AGM batteries is how the electrolyte is managed. In FLA batteries, the battery plates are submerged in the liquid electrolyte. During use, water in the electrolyte is broken down into oxygen and hydrogen gases and water is lost.
