Li-ion Batteries: Where Is the Technology Going?

This webinar was originally broadcast on 13th May 2020
This webinar, presented by IDTechEx Technology Analyst Dr Alex Holland, will provide an introduction to the key technological developments occurring within the Li-ion market, focussing on the anode and cathode.
As the importance of transport electrification and renewable power integration become obvious, so does the importance of suitable energy storage. Li-ion batteries are the leading technology, but within this class of batteries there are various different types and chemistries, each with their own advantages and disadvantages and optimal use-case. But the technology landscape continues to evolve as developers strive to improve performance. So which anode and cathode materials are being developed and why? Which chemistries will win out in electric vehicles or stationary energy storage? This webinar will review these questions by providing discussion and analysis on the following topics:
  • Key drivers of Li-ion development
  • Competing anode and cathode chemistries
  • The current cathode market
  • Key trends in anode and cathode development
This webinar shares some of the research from the newly updated IDTechEx report, "Li-ion Batteries 2020-2030".
