Zinc-based batteries— and their potential role in energy storage system applications— were in the spotlight at an international workshop in New York City hosted by the National Alliance for Advanced Transportation Batteries, NAATBatt.

The workshop at the City University of New York’s (CUNY) Advanced Science Research Centre at CUNY involved speakers from private industry, government and state organisations, all of whom are involved in designing, improving and eradicating problems in the manufacture and operation of zinc-based batteries.

Naatbatt lifetime awards for lead-acid and energy storage pioneers
