Batteries perform better without the strain

Using high-intensity X-rays to study the crystal structure of a common battery material while it charges and discharges, researchers have filled in new details about how mechanical strain hinders battery performance. These insights could help battery chemists tailor the composition of electrode materials to make better high-power batteries.

Can storage help reduce the cost of a future UK electricity system?

Energy storage could save £2.4 billion a year system wide by 2030; if regulatory hurdles are overcome this could rise to £7 billion a year. This report outlines significant cost savings for the UK electricity system, should the potential for energy storage be realised. The impact of which could deliver savings of up to £50 …

New lithium battery air shipment rules have taken effect.

The new IATA dangerous goods rules for lithium battery air shipments just took effect on Friday. Starting April 1, 2016, lithium-ion batteries packed alone (UN 3480) are prohibited as cargo on passenger aircraft. This is just one of many changes taking effect for lithium battery shippers on April 1. Others include new restrictions on shipment …
