Project description

English EN

Energy efficiency for lithium batteries

The Sintbat project managed to develop a cheap and energy efficient, maintenance free, lithium-ion based energy storage system offering an in-service time of 20 to 25 years. The EU-funded project ECO2LIB adds to the successes of that project, shifting focus to a new key performance improvement (KPI), the cycle related costs per energy. An extended LCA, cradle-to-grave will also be setup to judge the environmental impact of the different options and to choose the best. In fact, the ECO2LIB acronym was created to underscore the ecological and economical importance of the project.
