Lithium-ion batteries


Technology Description

Li-ion batteries, due to their high performance and rapidly dropping costs, are already used for many power stationary applications. In the power sector, their modularity allows them to provide a range of services from frequency regulation and ancillary services, to transmission and distribution investment deferral. Spillover effects from the transport sector are driving technology development towards higher densities, while power sector applications are benefiting from idling capacity or less performing designs. Research in the post Li-ion era is already under way with new systems such as lithium-sulphur, lithium-air and sodium-ion batteries. Key advantages compared to other technologies are its high performing attributes including high-energy density, highest cycle life, and an effective and scalable manufacturing process for small scale.

Relevance for Net Zero

A higher integration of variable renewable energy will increase the need of flexibility and energy storage. In addition, EV Li-ion batteries that reach their lifetime may be repurposed for stationary storage applications.
