The transition to clean energy is well underway, and it is widely accepted that battery-based energy storage has a major part to play. We therefore have a duty to build energy storage that will leave a positive legacy, and this is why a full understanding of the materials we use and how we use them is so important. Keeping informed of the benefits and downsides of different battery chemistries is what will enable us to make the right moves towards building renewable energy infrastructure that will stand the test of time, writes Carlton Cummins, CTO and co-founder of clean tech firm Aceleron.
Various battery chemistries are on the market already, with many more making their way through research and development. Staying informed of what’s inside our batteries will be key to optimizing for different applications and ensuring sustainable and efficient supply chains.
