Why Customizing Li-Ion Cells? (Energy Storage Innovations Europe 2019)

Dr Ralf Wagner, Sales and Project Manager
Custom Cells Itzehoe GmbH

Presentation Summary

In recent years, the lithium-ion cell technology has conquered many new applications such as automotive, marine, medical or aviation. In addition, lithium-ion batteries are also often used for stationary applications such as storage, peak shaving or frequency regulation. Each application places different demands on the battery. Some applications require a longer life, other applications require high power or have a high energy demand. Due to the different materials used in lithium-ion batteries, not all requirements can be met by one battery setup. Therefore, an adjustment of the battery cells is required to address each application with maximum efficiency.
Customcells demonstrates the capabilities available in lithium-ion battery cell technology and shows the parameters required to create a cell with preferred properties.
