Energy Storage Innovations Europe 2017
The field of battery energy storage is set to grow significantly over the coming years. The question that incumbents, raw materials suppliers, end users, and innovators are all asking themselves is whether Li-ion batteries will keep the lion's share of the market, or whether disruptive innovation will drive technology diversification according to applications.
Leyden-Jar is a Dutch start-up developing silicon anodes for Li-ion batteries via PECVD. They claim they can give batteries a 30% boost in energy density and have already raised €600k in funding.
