First commercialised in the 90’s in consumer electronics, the Lithium-Ion battery is a type of battery technology which utilises lithium as the core charge carrier for the battery. Lithium-ions are hosted in both the Cathode and Anode, depending upon if the battery is charged (Anode) or discharged (Cathode). Discharging a battery means that the lithium-ions move from the Anode, through a liquid medium known as the Electrolyte, across a Separator, which keeps the Anode and Cathode separated, across to the Cathode. During this process, the electrons (which cannot travel across the cell) are directed across the circuit.
Typically, anodes used today are primarily Carbon based, as are those used by DESTEN; with the cathode consisting of a Lithium Metal Oxide, which holds a special structure which allows the lithium ions to move in and out of the structure freely. DESTEN utilises a number of special nano-materials to enable lithium ions to move in and out of these structures quickly and efficiently, enabling long lifecycles, low heat build up, and very strong safety profiles.
Ultra-Fast Charging stands to change the way we drive, generate energy, manage our grids and even how we use personal electronics devices.
By cutting charging times to the single digit minute timescales, we make electric vehicles more acceptable for drivers and remove critical barriers like ‘Range Anxiety’ by making the addition of driving range a time efficient endeavour. For our energy systems, we enable a greater proportion of renewables to be added to the grid, as fast charging and discharging grid-scale battery capacity can ensure that grid infrastructures maintain a balance of demand and supply at all times; further, with growing energy needs and the growth of electric vehicles, battery storage helps to protect the grid from surging demand. Further, there are many novel applications which are enabled by fast charging and discharging like VTOL (Vertical Take off and Landing) Vehicles which require substantial power for take-off.
DESTEN’s energy dense, long lasting, high power technologies provide a great degree of value for grid systems, enabling more power to be deployed more quickly, where its needed and when its needed; this is true on the other side, where grids need to allocate power as quickly as possible, DESTEN cells are able to accept this power quicker than others.
As we move towards a greater proportion of variable renewable energy generation in our grid systems, the need for rapid acceptance and provision of power becomes more important; this is compounded by our growing power needs as we switch away from polluting fossil fuel driven transportation, this flexibility and security of supply will become more critical still.
