New-generation, powerful, rechargeable nickel-zinc battery
Energy security, autonomy and sustainability are amongst the most pressing goals in Europe today. There is a growing need to shift away from using fossil sources for clean, renewable energy sources. Battery energy storage systems enable an increasing use of technologies supporting intermittent renewable electricity generation. They create new demands on the grid, but several advancements in sustainability and competitiveness must be made. In this direction, the EU-funded LOLABAT project aims to develop a novel and promising battery chemistry – a rechargeable nickel-zinc battery. This is envisioned to have very high energy and power densities and low costs. It will be environmentally friendly, using abundant, available raw materials and non-toxic elements and having high recycling potential.
