Applications

New generations of battery materials are needed to respond to two major challenges that the world is facing today: clean mobility and clean energy. Our materials enable the best fitting solutions for automotive (hybrid, micro-hybrid and electric vehicles) and stationary applications (solar and wind power storage systems).

Under the threat of the global warming crisis, the automotive industry is actively working at the development of new hybrid and electric vehicles. It is expected that from the 100 million vehicles that will be on the market by 2020, 5 to 10% will be electric. Lithium iron phosphate is emerging as the preferred material for the new generation of vehicle batteries.

Applications beLife : Stationary, e-car, e-bus, e-bike

Environmental concerns have also fostered the use of renewable sources for energy generation, which in turn has boosted the need for energy storage that can manage the variable power output of solar and wind systems. With its product quality and competitive price, lithium iron phosphate can be the answer to these green energy storage systems. Demand is expected to grow considerably. In some regions of the world, renewable energies now provide more than 10% of the energy production, and many countries have long term plans to produce 50% or more of their energy through green technologies.
