Engineering Empty Space: Tailoring Battery Electrodes for Ion Transport

Author: Anton Resing: The cathode electrodes in a lithium-ion battery are a composite of solid charge storing particles, a polymeric binder, and a conductive additive. Together, they are well dispersed in a solvent and spread like paint on a conductive substrate, an effective and pleasingly simple solution that works across various chemistries and cell designs. … Read more

1 GWh of Cells

A look at the numbers around 1 GWh of cells and what could you do with 1 GWh of energy. There are more equivalents for 1 GWh and 1GWh of cells, but hopefully this just helps put the unit into perspective. References Manufacturing Process In order to engineer a battery pack it is important to … Read more

Usable Energy

In the simplest terms the usable energy of a battery is the Total Energy multiplied by the Usable SoC Window. The total energy is the nominal voltage multiplied by the nominal rated capacity. However, if you have been through the Battery Basics you will have realised that the battery cell and pack do not have … Read more
