Predicting Battery Failure Helps Millions Maintain Electricity

Predicting Battery Failure Helps Millions Maintain Electricity

Millions of people around the world lack access to electricity. Decentralised solar-battery systems are key for addressing this whilst avoiding carbon emissions and air pollution, but are hindered by relatively high costs and rural locations that inhibit timely preventative maintenance. When batteries in such systems fail, it can be difficult to replace them and can leave people stuck without access to power.

Battery Technology Primed for Diversification

To date, Li-ion batteries have been the go-to technology for vehicle electrification and new stationary energy storage systems. However, the supply chain for Li-ion production is coming under increasing scrutiny with bottlenecks feasible during the second half of the 2020s, creating a potential opportunity for alternative battery chemistries not reliant on lithium, cobalt, or nickel.

Photovoltaic Hydrogen Production Leads Green Revolution

With the increasing influence of hydrogen energy, photovoltaic hydrogen production industry is also rapidly ignited. Photovoltaic hydrogen production mainly uses direct current generated by photovoltaic power generation systems to supply hydrogen production stations. Compared with traditional power stations, photovoltaic DC power generation systems reduce the process of inverter and voltage boost.
