Begining of July 2020 TEESMAT partners will organize a Summer School in Grenoble, FR. The activities will include lecturers from industry and academia for the first two days and a three day hands on training seminars on advanced battery characterization techniques will follow. More details will follow within the month September.
Rechargeable battery technologies based on the use of metal anodes coupled to multivalent charge carrier ions have the potential to deliver breakthroughs in energy density radically leap-frogging the current state-of-the-art Li-ion battery technology. However, both the use of metal anodes and the migration of multivalent ions, within the electrolyte and the electrodes, are technological bottlenecks which make these technologies, all at different […]
The European Union is starting to act like China when it comes to building the batteries that will drive the next generation of cars and trucks. In the past few months, government officials led by European Commission Vice President Maros Sefcovic have joined with manufacturers, development banks and commercial lenders on measures that will channel […]
Growing global demand for batteries that power electric vehicles (EVs) and high tech devices is set to cause a supply crunch of lithium, cobalt and nickel by the mid-2020s, global consultancy Wood Mackenzie predicts. The firm’s latest research shows that sales of passenger EVs, including hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), jumped by more than 24% last year. And while HEVs had […]
TEESMAT aims at building up a strong EU community, to create a market for the delivery of advanced materials characterisation techniques. We will act as a portal for information, news and services based on TEESMAT battery materials characterisation techniques.Yes, i am interested in joining the community!
