ReportBuyer the online destination for business intelligence for major industry sectors, has added a new report analysing next-generation batteries.
“Worldwide Next-Generation Batteries: Next-Generation Li-ion Chemistries, Advanced Zinc and Nickel Batteries, Thin-Film and Printed Batteries, and Emerging Alternative Power Sources”, reports that this includes technologies that have higher power density and higher energy density, are safer, and can be put in new form factors - with the expectation that they can be put into mass production targeting lower costs.
The report shows that manufacturers of all types of commercial products - from microchips to cell phones, lawnmowers to automobiles, medical implants to cordless power tools - would benefit from battery technology with better performance that is lighter, smaller, cheaper, safer and greener.
Battery manufacturers are developing new generations of batteries, in various form factors, for existing and emerging markets:
*Batteries with more energy in smaller packages: flexible and lightweight thin-film and/or screen-printed batteries for tiny electronic systems and emerging micropower energy-harvesting devices, where macro trends and market trends are converging around ecosensititives and low-power devices.
• Larger-format but lighter-weight rechargeable batteries with greater power, higher energy, longer runtimes and better safety profiles: for the transportation industry and advancing the market for plug-in hybrid and all-electric vehicles.
• Ultra-large advanced batteries for storing energy from renewable, sustainable sources: for electric utility grid services and clean-energy generators like wind turbines and solar panels.
• Alternative, hybrid energy storage devices with attributes of both a battery and either an ultracapacitor or a fuel cell: potentially ground-breaking future energy storage devices that may be superior to any batteries commonly used today.
The 98 page report further shows that commercial companies, start-ups and universities are all working on new battery designs that rely on new materials and new chemistries. Some of their technologies are available to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and product designers already. Others are struggling to move into the production phase and may see their plans delayed by the global recession.
The report “Worldwide Next-Generation Batteries: Next-Generation Li-ion Chemistries, Advanced Zinc and Nickel Batteries, Thin-Film and Printed Batteries, and Emerging Alternative Power Sources” is available from Report Buyer.
