Solid state batteries are the future of electric mobility. Here’s why!

Solid state batteries have the potential to reduce the carbon footprint of EV batteries,  compared to traditional batteries.

Some of the key advantages of solid-state batteries over traditional batteries include:

Solid state batteries

Increased Energy Density – Solid-state batteries have a much higher energy density than traditional batteries, meaning they store more energy per unit volume. This makes them ideal for large-scale energy storage applications where space is limited.

Improved Safety – These batteries are also much safer than traditional batteries because no liquid electrolyte is involved. This means there is no risk of fire or explosion, making them much safer to use and handle.

Increased Efficiency – Solid-state batteries are also more efficient than traditional batteries because they contain solid matter instead of a liquid electrolyte. This means less energy is lost during charging and discharging, making them more efficient overall.

Solid state batteries

Longer Lifespan – Solid-state batteries also have a longer lifespan than traditional batteries because they contain no liquid electrolyte needing constant replacement. This means you can use them for many more cycles before needing to be replaced, making them more cost-effective in the long run.

Lower Environmental Impact – Solid-state batteries also have a lower environmental impact than traditional batteries. They are less likely to leak and cause environmental damage, making them more environmentally friendly overall. But, they also have ecological challenges, including the rarity of some materials used in their production.

What are Solid State Batteries

Solid state batteries (SSBs) use solid electrolytes, a carbon-free anode, and a cathode composite layer. During charge or discharge, the ions migrate into the ionically conductive solid matrix rather than into the ionic salt dissolved in the solution.

Solid state batteries

Solid-state batteries store and distribute energy via redox reactions. The cathode undergoes reduction and the anode endures oxidation, allowing the battery to store and release energy as necessar.

However, solid-state batteries are also more expensive to produce and have shorter lifespans than liquid batteries. Despite these challenges, solid-state batteries are an exciting new technology with the potential to revolutionize the way we power our devices.

Future of Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles (EVs) offer an opportunity to replace fossil fuels in the transport sector. Electrification of the transport sector can also bring benefits in terms of increased energy efficiency and reduced local pollution.

The push for electric vehicles has led to a corresponding increase in demand for batteries that can power them. Lithium-ion batteries are currently the most common type of battery used in EVs. Still, solid-state batteries are a potential successor due to their higher energy density and charge/discharge rates.
