Leclanché batteries to power EV fast-charging partnership

Switzerland-based energy storage firm Leclanché is teaming up with a Dutch company on a pilot batteries project aimed at creating a network of energy-efficient electric vehicle (EV) fast charging stations across Europe.

Leclanché said it will initially develop a battery storage system “using large-format lithium-ion batteries” at two unnamed locations for Fastned— which already operates 63 fast charging EV stations it has built in the Netherlands.

Higher performing lithium-ion market ready by 2018

Materials researchers in Switzerland have boosted the performance of lithium-ion batteries by up to three times by reworking how an anode accepts ions.

Scientists at the Swiss Paul Scherrer Institute PSI in Villigen and the ETH Zurich created a shorter paths for ions to travel to the anode by subjecting graphite to a rotating magnetic field.
