In this paper, Polarium provides information and insights related to the most common lithium-ion battery technologies and chemistries, comparisons to other technologies, and take a look at what the future may hold.
Lithium-ion batteries are on track to power the transition to a sustainable energy system and transportation sector. Enabling endless energy.
In a world where we’ve become dependent on batteries, constantly carrying around one in our pocket or purse, it may come as a surprise that batteries will likely become even more important in the future. This is due to the electrification of the energy system, to enable it to handle larger amounts of renewables, as well as the electrification of the transportation sector. Most of these changes are being powered by lithium-ion batteries, which offer an unrivalled combination of energy density, cycle life and cost competitiveness.
In this paper, Polarium describes the most common lithium-ion battery technologies and compare them to conventional lead-acid battery technology. We also take a look at technologies that could replace the lithium battery in the future, in the so-called post-lithium era.
