US researchers open door for magnesium batteries to disrupt the ESS market

Thu, 12/03/2020 - 09:36 -- paul Crompton

Researchers from the University of Houston and the Toyota Research Institute of North America (TRINA) have developed a new cathode and electrolyte that could help magnesium batteries compete with lithium-ion.

The teams have demonstrated a magnesium battery capable of operating at room temperature and delivering a power density comparable to that offered by lithium-ion batteries.
