IDTechEx explores the evolving landscape of graphite anodes in li-ion batteries.
There continues to be lots of excitement regarding new Li-ion anode technologies. The next generation of silicon anode materials are inching closer to commercialization with the promise of improved energy density and rate capability.
Lithium-metal and anode-free solutions continue to be explored, while options such as niobium oxides have also garnered some interest for fast-charging batteries. Nevertheless, the good overall performance and low cost of graphite means that it is predicted to maintain its dominance in the Li-ion industry.
