By this time next year we may be able to wave goodbye to that old chestnut about renewables endangering security of supply. Elsewhere, the price of lithium – and the products it goes into – could go either way after tanking this year. Energy storage is all set to really come of age in 2020 […]
A persistent concern among some EV drivers is the long-term health of the battery. All batteries lose some storage capacity over time.
GM has announced a new joint-venture with LG Chem to build their own battery gigafactory, which will have 30 GWh of annual capacity, in Ohio.
hen Reuters broke the news last night about GM’s $2.3 billion battery gigafactory, it made little mention of what vehicles the company will build with those batteries.
ADVANCED BATTERIES | BMW Forges Ahead with E-Mobility and Secures Long-Term Battery Needs.

Limited) and Samsung SDI. For more information see the IDTechEx report on Electric Vehicles 2020-2030. The original CATL order volume of four billion euros announced in mid-2018 will now […]
The recycling market will experience a tenfold expansion between last year and 2030, driven by EV battery usage and portable electronics.
Scientist have developed a lithium ion battery that charges at an elevated temperature to increase reaction rate but keeps the cell cool during discharge, showing the potential to add 200 miles of driving range to an electric car in 10 minutes.
It is certain that lithium batteries will be dominant over the coming decade and their chemistry will change in pursuit of reduction in cost and flammability and to obtain greater energy density.
A missing link in the grid’s evolution.
The 100-megawatt club is about to get a lot busier. Here are the world’s eight largest battery storage projects.
With BlackRock as a partner and a new focus on project ownership, GE’s under-the-radar solar business may be in for noisier days ahead.
