Promising research paves way for sodium-ion battery breakthrough

Wed, 06/03/2020 - 14:42 -- Paul Crompton

Researchers at Washington State University (WSU) and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) have created a sodium-ion technology they say works as well as a lithium-ion battery.

The team reported their sodium-ion battery is able to deliver a capacity similar to some lithium-ion batteries and keep more than 80% of its charge after 1,000 cycles.

One of the United States Department of Energy’s national laboratories has been selected to lead research into designing an improved electric car battery.

The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Washington is to guide a $50 million project over the next five years to come up with a smaller, lighter and cheaper battery for electric cars.

The aim of the Battery500 consortium is to create a battery pack with specific energy of 500KWh, bigger than current electric car battery level of 170-200KWh.

The battery pack could also be used to provide better rechargeable batteries for mobile phones and laptops and energy storage before it is needed for the grid.
