Safer Batteries Set to Take Over Residential Energy Storage Market

As solar energy is increasing its usage in the US, the demand for solar batteries is also on the rise. The most common battery chemistry being used globally is ‘lithium-ion batteries. However, that term is very broad for classification wherein the lithium-nickel-manganese-cobalt-oxide, or NMC, that is used in electric vehicles, is categorized as such.
With the quest for storing as much energy as possible in such a tiny space raising the risk for unwanted chemical reaction due to heat, or also called ‘thermal runaway’, the need for an alternative is inevitable. One particular substitute that is growing popular is the lithium-…
