French sodium-ion battery maker Tiamat has raised €30 million ($32.6 million) in equity and debt financing. It will use the funds to launch the construction of a 5 GWh production plant in the Hauts-de-France region.
GODI India has signed a memorandum of understanding with the state government of Telangana to set up a 12.5 GWh lithium-ion battery cell manufacturing unit with an investment of INR 8,000 crore in Telangana.
US-based Acculon Energy has announced series production of its sodium-ion battery modules and packs for mobility and stationary energy storage applications. Scaled production of 2 GWh is scheduled to start in mid-2024.
Sodium-ion energy storage system manufacturer, Peak Energy, is working to streamline what it believes is the biggest bottleneck to scaling enough battery energy storage systems to accommodate 80% renewable energy generation and 100% carbon-free electricity in the United States by 2035.
The Ministry of Heavy Industries has appointed Engineers India Ltd (EIL) as independent engineers to monitor the progress of the advanced-chemistry battery cell projects awarded under the production-linked incentives (PLI) Scheme.
Biwatt Power, a Chinese manufacturer, has developed new residential sodium-ion batteries with an efficiency rate of 97% and a projected lifespan of more than 3,000 cycles.
Lithium-ion batteries remain the preferred choice for electric mobility applications in India due to their higher energy density, well-established infrastructure, and safety record. However, the development of sodium-ion batteries continues, and they may have potential advantages in terms of cost and environmental impact, making them a promising alternative in the future.
Russian researchers have transmuted poisonous Sosnowsky’s hogweed into high-grade anode material for sodium-ion batteries. The obtained material has a Coulombic efficiency of 87%, which is on par with the best reported results for hard carbons synthesized from other raw materials.
Scientists in Germany developed a new process for manufacturing battery electrodes, that they say could be both more cost effective and environmentally friendly compared to current technologies. The technique could be applied to a range of different battery materials/chemistries and its creators say they are in discussion with a number of battery cell manufacturers regarding pilot production.
Scientists in Japan demonstrated a hard-carbon electrode that can greatly increase the capacity of a sodium-ion battery. With further work on the long-term performance, the discovery could make sodium-ion batteries better able to compete on energy density with their lithium-ion counterparts.
