Calling all NEMA lithium-ion battery manufacturers
is the time for NEMA members in the lithium-ion battery industry to get
involved in IEC nano standards work. Balloting of a new work proposal in IEC TC 113
is underway for electrochemical characterization of cathode nanomaterials for
lithium-ion batteries. It’s crucial that US industry get involved now, through
the IEC TC 113 US Technical Advisory Group.
future of renewable energy significantly depends on the development of
efficient systems for energy storage and lithium-ion batteries are a promising technology to meet
this need, with electrodes made from nanoscale composites playing a key role.
As product innovations are introduced and optimized, a large number of
different materials will need to be tested, and characterization of the
electrochemical properties of cathode nanomaterials used in lithium-ion
batteries is vital for their customized development.
If US industry
chooses not to come to the table, then other countries and other regions around
the world will be calling the shots on how international standards will govern
cathode nanomaterial testing.
