Flexible Battery Made In Korea

Professor Keon Jae Lee of the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology and his team have created a battery so thin and flexible that it could one day lead to gadgets with big screens that can be folded away into your pocket.

Lee was able to create a lithium-ion battery that is not only razor-thin but is able to retain its voltage even while being bent.

Lee is now looking into mass-production techniques and the possibility of stacking the batteries for greater power output. Bigger questions about the practicability and durability of flexible gadgets still remain, however it is nonetheless good to know the main technical roadblocks are solvable.

What could be the impact of such flexibility on stationary storage applications?

How Can Energy Storage Systems Reduce Investment Expenditure for TSOs/DSOs?

Our demand for energy continues to grow – and while generation has kept up with demand, infrastructure improvements have lagged behind. Bringing grid infrastructure to modern standards is not a simple task. With most power grids many decades old, Transmission System Operators (TSOs) and Distribution System Operators (DSOs) face expensive decisions. Is it more cost-effective…

Cutting costs for bulk ES

What technologies are being explored to cut costs for bulk energy storage?

Making energy storage cheaper is a key goal of a horde of companies. But how are they looking to store energy at much larger – gigawatt-hours, not megawatt-hours – scales? Increasing energy density or improving component manufacturing efficiency can only go so far. Nothing can yet match pumped hydropower, however the limited availability of suitable…
