Prototyping sodium-ion battery, PI Artem Abakumov

Electrochemical energy storage with Na-ion batteries (SIB) is an emerging technology, which can easily compete with the lead-acid batteries (LAB) because of competitive price per kWh but higher specific energy. Significant research efforts are now being ramped up to develop Na-ion batteries, especially cathode (positive electrode) materials for providing high energy density and power density.
