Novel battery for solar home systems

Objective

Photovoltaic (PV) Systems transfer sunlight into electric energy. The costs are still relatively high. Many RTD efforts are directed towards making PV panels cheaper and towards other materials with better cell efficiency. However, the battery is probably the weakest part of the system; they are unreliable and show a limited life. Hence, considering the life-cycle costs of the PV System, the battery is the most expensive system component. This project focuses on the development of a novel battery for stand-alone PV-systems, typically Solar Home Systems.
