Battery technologies and its role towards electrifying America
Fossil fuels have been used as an energy source in human civilization for over two thousand years for heat and light. With the invention of electricity and its use in everyday life, fossil fuels moved into an indirect energy source for the production of this electricity.
Humanity is now at the forefront of an electrical revolution, where electricity can be produced directly from the environment. One fundamental problem with this, is that directly produced electricity can’t be stored efficiently, until now.
The focus on low-cost energy storage is critical to transitioning away from fossil fuels to a sustainable energy future. While many options exist for energy storage on a large scale, electrically powered devices from phones to vehicles require extremely high electrical storage densities. This is where lithium-ion batteries have shown to be a vital storage solution.
Today, most lithium-ion batteries and their raw materials are produced in Asia, with a virtually non-existing supply chain in North America. NOVONIX plans to solve this dilemma through advanced battery materials and manufacturing processes. This will increase adoption of electrically powered devices and renewable energy, further advancing the energy transition.
