Development of Basic Technology for Innovative Batteries to Surpass Lithium-Ion Batteries

-Researchers to Present Results from the RISING Project-
March  28,2016
New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO)
Kyoto University

As part of a NEDO project, research groups in Kyoto University and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) worked together to create a new concept for batteries (a reservoir-type battery) that surpasses the performance limits of lithium-ion batteries. The technology improves the characteristics of battery systems that have been considered to be inactive in charge-discharge, marking a major step toward the development of basic technology for innovative batteries with a projected energy density of 500Wh/kg.

The research groups will be presenting the details of their research at the 83rd Annual Meeting of the Electrochemical Society of Japan, which will take place in Osaka on March 29-31, 2016.
