Nanotechnology for Advanced Battery Energy Storage Systems

Project description

Nanomaterials for improved battery energy storage systems

The EU supports energy storage innovation so that electricity consumption and generation – at any moment in time – are perfectly matched. This balance is key to maintaining a stable supply of electricity. Energy storage can help by saving large quantities of excess electricity. While battery energy storage systems are emerging as potential solutions, mature technologies (lead-acid, sodium-based and lithium-ion) are expensive, have limited lifespans and carry inherent risks. The EU-funded Nano-Edison project applied nanotechnology to develop a new battery energy storage system that replaces the iron and nickel solid plates of the traditional Edison battery with iron and nickel nanomaterials. Compared to other alternatives on the market, it offers increased durability and the lowest production costs.
