Lithium is an essential element in the energy storage space, and for a good reason.
A lithium-ion battery charges faster, lasts longer, and has a higher power density than its counterparts. It is used in telecom towers, batteries, and its biggest growth driver, electric vehicles. However, a shortage of lithium is expected by 2028, and there has been an increasing interest in finding alternative energy sources.
To further this cause, Dr. Josef Daniel-Ivad, principal of jdi energy consulting, elaborates on the role of zinc as an alternative energy source.
Using zinc can eliminate fires caused by lithium-ion batteries in applications such as e-bikes or energy storage batteries due to the water-based nature of the electrolytes and the non-flammables materials used in zinc batteries. Dr. Daniel-Ivad leads the zinc battery initiative (ZBI) for the International Zinc Association, so jdi energy consulting’s clients can leverage this access to leading edge zinc battery developers and their technologies.
