Energy Storage Technologies: What Comes Next?

Forum 5 | 4 December | 12:45pm-3:00pm

The energy storage industry is one of the most extensively researched at both academic and industrial level over the past few years. Many are already looking beyond lithium-ion batteries with many alternatives showing excellent potential.

This session will look at the underlying chemistry and players of a wide range of post lithium-ion batteries. A competitive (or complimentary) technology in supercapacitors and pseudocapacitors will also be analysed, both of which are experiencing a changing landscape. Finally, IDTechEx will give scenarios as to the opportunity of battery reduction and potential elimination
Each session will be delivered by IDTechEx analysts who have conducted the underlying research. This research is based on interviews with key players, extensive travel for global conference and events, as well as visiting prominent players in this area. The classes will include technical introductions, benchmarking studies, value chain analysis, case studies, key player analysis, current market analysis, and a global outlook. The slides will be provided to the attendees and there will be time allotted for Q&A and audience networking

For those attending.

Size Reduction and Elimination of Batteries

Compiled by Luke Gear, Technology Analyst, IDTechEx

  • Why use less or no lithium-ion batteries
  • Why changing anode, cathode, electrolyte and format while scaling up output tenfold breaks a basic rule of manufacturing.
