TUT1: Sodium-ion Batteries

Philipp Adelhelm, PhD, Professor, Institute of Chemistry, Humboldt-University Berlin
8:30 am

Na-ion Batteries: Materials and State-of-the-Art

Philipp Adelhelm, PhD, Professor, Institute of Chemistry, Humboldt-University Berlin

Na-ion batteries (SIB) are rapidly developing as potential alternatives to complement Li-ion battery (LIB) technology. The energy densities of SIB are close to LIB, but at the same time they avoid or reduce the amounts of many critical elements used for LIB. Due to their conceptual similarity, SIB can be produced on the same manufacturing lines as LIB, which is a great advantage for market implementation. This tutorial gives an overview on Na-ion battery development, with the focus on materials (anode, cathode) and electrolytes.

Technoeconomic Analysis: Effective Development and Commercialization Pathways for New Battery Technologies

Thomas D. Gregory, Owner and Consultant, Borealis Technology Solutions LLC

Technoeconomic analysis is often thought to be synonymous with cost estimation, but it is also a powerful tool for guiding process and product R&D as well as assessing competing technology. This tutorial will illustrate the value of integrating technoeconomic analysis into new product and process development from laboratory to plant construction, focusing on the early stages of development when critical decisions such as process route selection must be made with limited data. Techniques for estimating capital and operating costs will be covered, ranging from simple analogies to more complex methodologies. Using the results to differentiate between process options and proceed from “What can we do?” to “What should we do?” will be highlighted. These concepts and methodologies will be illustrated with real-world examples based on the instructor’s 40+ years of industrial experience.

TOPICS TO BE COVERED: 

- Factors that impact successful commercialization of battery materials 

- Technological feasibility versus economic practicality-market need/company capability intersection 

- Technoeconomic analysis methodology, focusing on the critical early stages of a project where product design and process chemistry and development occur amid significant technical and economic uncertainty

3:15 pm

Key Factors for Successful Implementation and Utilization of Battery Energy Storage Systems

Matthias Vetter, PhD, Department Head, Electrical Energy Storage, Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE

Battery energy storage systems are the backbone for efficient and reliable use of fluctuating, renewable energy sources in power grids. They can be used in behind-the-meter energy supply systems as well as in utility-scale applications. For successful projects, risks on a technical and economical level have to be considered and are addressed by quality-assurance measures, which have to include the following topics:

- Safety on a component and system level including functional safety

- Reliability on a component and system level

- Performance: efficiency and effectiveness 

Aging of battery cells has a strong impact on these key factors. Therefore, verification and evaluation have to consider not only system behavior at beginning of life but also at an aged status. In this context, it is important to investigate the application-specific degradation rate and not only equivalent full cycles and calendric lifetime.
