IEA hails ‘bumper year’ for energy storage

Global energy storage deployment reached a record 8GWh in 2018— nearly double that of the previous year, according to a new International Energy Agency (IEA) report.

Behind-the-meter storage “matched grid-scale storage investments” for the second consecutive year, and deployment in both categories reached record levels in 2018 with significant growth in South Korea, Australia, Japan, Germany and the US, the report said.

Johnson Matthey ramps up ‘high-energy’ material investment

UK-based Johnson Matthey (JM) is ramping up investment in developing its “ultra-high energy” battery cathode material and plans to open customer application testing centres in the UK and Japan.

JM said it has made “significant progress” in commercialising its enhanced lithium nickel oxide (eLNO) material— and has signed its first long-term supply agreement for raw materials with Canada’s Nemaska Lithium.

Lithium and sulfur combined in new anode material

Researchers in India have combined two chemistries to boost the capacity retention of an anode material in lithium-ion batteries.

The team from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras combined the lithium ion insertion reaction from lithium-ion batteries and the sulfur redox reaction from lithium-sulfur batteries to increase the battery’s overall capacity.
