Stanford team develops sodium-ion battery with performance equivalent to Li-ion, but at much lower cost

Green Car Congress

Stanford researchers have developed a sodium-ion battery (SIB) that can store the same amount of energy as a state-of-the-art lithium ion, at substantially lower cost. Thus, further research is required to find better sodium host materials. The sodium salt makes up the cathode; the anode is made up of phosphorous.

EV Guru: Sodium-Ion Batteries are Coming Sooner Than You think!

Plug In India

Video: EV Guru: Sodium-Ion Batteries are Coming Sooner Than You think! The mining industry cannot keep up with the demand, so the alternative is to manufacture batteries based on sodium chemistry. The big issue with sodium-ion batteries is that they can store only about two-thirds of the energy of Li-ion batteries of equivalent size.

Researchers show that layered calcium transition metal oxides can be promising cathode materials for Ca-ion batteries

Green Car Congress

Out of several candidates that could replace Li in rechargeable batteries, calcium (Ca) stands out as a promising metal. However, there still remain some major hurdles to the development of Ca-based batteries, one of them being a lack of knowledge on suitable cathode materials that can efficiently store and release Ca in a reversible manner.
